Juried Show Entries and Printmaking Workshop

Juried Shows

A lot of exciting things have been going on in the last little while.

The Northern Ontario Fibre Artists had a group piece “Seven Create” juried into the Canadian Quilters Association National Juried Show to be held in St. Catherines in June.

I will do a separate post on this piece a little later.

I also had two pieces of my own juried in  Ghost Ship - Ciudad de Inca and Due North were both accepted.

Due North
 And last week I received a phone call telling me that 2 other pieces had been accepted into the 7th Annual Juried Contemporary Art Exhibition 2014 held in Kirkland Lake at the Museum of Northern History.

Printmaking Workshop

This past week-end, I attended a Printmaking Workshop at the Temiskaming Art Gallery. A beautiful exhibition by five area printmakers was being shown at the Gallery.

All five participated in this workshop in one way or another.

It was a well organized, with a lot going on at all times.

We printed by hand as well as on a printing press.

This is my design and the stamp I carved (I changed the background to speed things up):

Original design and carved stamp
The printing included  embossing, printing one colour and rainbow roll, adding collage to printing and printing on watercolour.

Here are some of my results:

Blue and black print on paper

Print on paper collage
Monoprinting on plexi was also added to the mix.

It was very informative and a lot of fun.

Happy Quilting,
