Video by Nicholas Wilton

Check this out.

Check out his web site as well.

Nicholas Wilton is very generous in his sharing of information and inspiration.  He is a very prolific artist as well, so he knows what he is talking about in terms of art practice.

Blog Break

I am taking the month of February, more or less, to focus on studio work, away from the blog and Facebook posts.  I may check in a couple of times if I find a tidbit I want to share with you, but I need a bit of a break to focus on my own work.  I have a show coming up at AVA Gallery, in Lebanon, NH, which opens April 22nd.  So I will be doing this:

Gelatin Printing in Vermont

I just got back from teaching Gelatin Print Collage at North Country Studio Workshops, an event at which I have been a student the last two sessions.  This workshop series happens every two years at Bennington College, which has absolutely awesome studio facilities.

Looking across to drawing studio (2nd floor) and print studio (1st floor)

This is a group of my work, each 8"x8", I did to demonstrate working in series.

Collage papers and prints

Ditto the above

A HUGE output!

A few of my fellow faculty members that might interest you are Lisa Pressman, who taught encaustic, Lisa Grey, mixed media, and Daniel Essig, book arts.   It was an intense week!  If you are interested in attending next time, in 2018, I suggest you get on NCSW's mailing list.  Classes are limited in size, so you get an intimate workshop, cross pollination from all the other workshops, and evening slide talks from all the faculty.  Plus really good food and a gorgeous setting!
