Printing with Styrofoam Saturday, August 18th / 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Instructor: Myra Grosinger

Styrofoam printing is easy and fun and the end result is similar to a woodcut print. The difference is we use only one plate for all the colors that we decide to use in the printing process. Each student will draw on manilla oak tag a design that they would like to use for their print.
Participants will be able to create multiples of the same print. Each print will have the same basic design but incorporate different colors. The beauty of this process is the ability to use one plate for all the printing and color.

Fee: $30.00 for members; $40.00 for non-members



Supply List 

Styrofoam sheets, block printing ink, rice paper, and brayers will be provided
Participants should bring: 
Ideas for your print-a-scene such as flowers, etc. 
You will be creating 4 to 5 prints – same drawing just with different colors 
2 plastic soup spoons for rubbing when printing 
Smock to wear 
Pencil and eraser 
Apron or clothes that would benefit from paint spots 



Process is three fold: 
Drawing into a plate of Styrofoam and taking a print 
Adding more lines and taking a print 
Cutting up the plate to print additional colors

Paedra Bramhall’s Studios and Gallery Visit - Bridgewater
Saturday, July 21, 2012 – 11:00 through 3:00 – Rain date: July 22nd


Prepare to be Overwhelmed
PHOTO:Sally Curtis
Paedra is an exceptional artist who for the past 40 years has pursued a professional career encompassing bronze and glass sculptures; and then married the two mediums in intricate, both bold and delicate, combinations.

Most recently through use of the computer Paedra has created Transfigured Collages called Parallel Universes. These images are created from photos on the computer and then printed on archival canvas and stretched in the same manner as an oil painting. These images range in size from 11” x 19” to 66” x 106”. If you missed Paedra’s last exhibition at the AVA Gallery [which is also on her web site] this will be a mind expanding time to see many of these Transfigured Collages.
 
Bente Torjusen of the AVA Gallery has written – ‘During thirty years Paedra has persevered and developed with a fierce and idiosyncratic integrity, and it is this integrity that continues to propel all of her diverse, creative projects. She has a truly inimitable manner and style and always embraces our uncertainties and questions with flair and bear hugs.’

We invite serious art lovers to join us at Paedra’s home, studio, and gallery properties in Bridgewater VT for a tour of these unusual studios, a demonstrative viewing of works, interactive conversations, a picnic, and perhaps a dip in the brook. This is an RSVP event and persons interested in attending should contact Sally Curtis by email – sdck@vermontel.net – or by telephone 802-422-3852. 

Fran Bull of the Gallery in the Fields has written: ‘This is art that blares its forthright tunes 
with unbridled virtuosity.’ You will be overwhelmed at the scope of the work that will be on display, the grandeur of the bronze sculptures, the uniqueness of the property and buildings, and the dynamic glass globes called ‘Interiors’ that appear as visual symphonies. They have spoken to me – they said ‘take one home.’ I will. Paedra will be turning her large sculpture studio into a ‘second’ gallery for us at this special event and will be bringing out some of her last remaining incredibly beautiful blown glass Interiors to tempt us. Sad to say her hot glass shop has been cold for 6 years now. If necessary, safe shipping can be arranged.

In the Hood Museum of Art’s catalog of Regional Selections, Maureen Ahern wrote: ‘Paedra’s bold yet delicate construction and composition explores the biological and political implications of the feminine side of the human condition with a directness not seen before.’ We encourage you to join us in an exploration of this exceptional artist’s vision and the pulsing tumescence that emanates from the work.

We are asking interested persons to please contact Sally to receive directions and perhaps some help with carpooling as                     
there are limited parking spaces at the site. Those who do attend should bring their own picnic lunch, sturdy shoes for walking, a folding chair [perhaps a blanket for lying on the moss], and insect repellent. Also bring a camera if you wish. If water invites you, the brook is adjacent to the picnic lawn – water shoes would be appropriate. Additional pictures and information is at www.paedra.com , also http://secretcabin.net and on Facebook at ‘The Art of Paedra.’ Also see more pictures on the photo page of our web site – www.killingtonartsguild.org

Monoprinting Techniques Saturday, June 23rd 2012 / CANCELLED
Sally D. Curtis – 9:30 AM-3:30 PM

Monoprinting Information

Monoprint by Sally Curtis

Monotype is at least 300 years old. It started with artists covering glass plates with black printing ink and then using their fingers or brushes to delicately remove the ink. The artist had to be sure to leave behind enough ink to create the various tones and shades in the finished work that are the hallmark of a beautiful monotype.
Technically a monotype is an image that is painted on a plate, metal or Plexiglas, the painted plate is placed on the press, a damp Monoprint by Sally Curtis sheet of paper is applied over it and then it is run through the press by hand. The magic occurs when the paper is lifted off the plate and the paint is ‘set up’ giving a very rich and exciting look to the colors and surface of the paper. Each monotype is a unique and discrete work of art.

Sally recently acquired a pin press, which is a portable device that allows printing most any place. View a demonstration of the process and try your hand at a print of your own. Primarily flat objects can be used as subjects, such as leaves, embossed papers, lace, and other items from nature. Bring something to take a print of June 23rd at the Gallery from 9:3-3:30 PM.


For more about Monoprinting please see attachment below.

Fee: $50 for members; $60 for non-members

Peter Huntoon‘s Watercolor Workshop April 28 & 29, 2012 
Saturday & Sunday 9:00-4:00

All artists, those just beginning and those who have been painting for years, can enjoy the experience of two days with Peter and his unique style of bringing water and paint to paper. 
 
Peter is a local artist well-known for his watercolor paintings of many places and towns around Vermont. 

Peter’s passion for his craft radiates in a group setting and participants benefit from this interplay and exposure.

The group will participate in some guided art exercises exploring the elements and principles of chroma, its value, hue and intensity, and design – he might be heard to say ‘use a mama, papa, and a baby’. 

Peter will conduct several demonstrations and probably paint one full size picture. 

Sign up to attend if you are looking for some inspiring and unique instruction.

The workshop will be held in the Guild’s Gallery upstairs at Cabin Fever Gifts, 2363 Route 4 in Killington, across from the foot of the Killington Access Road.
