"Andrew Jeffrey Wright - Art Jokes! at Fluxus Friday"

first of all, thank you Jason Kachadourian! for planning the great Fluxus Friday (also his senior thesis show) that happened this past weekend! totally sweet bands, performance artists, and installation'ers included in the show were: Black Pus (Brian Chippendale), Cinders Gallery, Lucky Dragons, Mudboy, Andrew Jeffrey Wright (Art Jokes), Mark Price, the list goes on. it was a really fantastic show with ALSO a well-selected group of work by student sculpture, print, and other media majors.

now check out these upcoming printmaking shows:

James and Chris' Senior Show!

The OPENING IS TOMORROW! Tuesday! April 8th! Be there or be SQUARE!

Tuesday, April 8, 2008
Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: VA building, room 1019A

These two printmaking majors (James is interdisciplinary with sculpture) meld well together both thematically and visually, which makes their show very worth-while to see. While James Carroll's deep-process work tends to focus on making the natural seem more industrious (and vice versa), Chris Tyrrell's melodic prints definitely create an aura in which the sculptural image becomes eerily natural.


This group of Rag-Tag-Hard-Workin'-Do-It-Yerself Junior Year Print Rebels are making a big splash by combining forces, and artwork, to give you, the viewer a dive into the various medias that we, the printmakers, lovingly adore. (longest sentence, I apologize) - but it's true! You come to this show, and you'll see what these kids are made of. They even silkscreened CMYK / Letterpress postcards just so you can keep a lil' work of your own. They LOVE YOU!

The group?: Shannon Barber, Thomas Berlangero, Kelwin Coleman, Ryan Duff, Leta Grey, James Jordan, Michael Kondel, Joseph Montepagani, Gillian Riley, Pilar Rodriguez, Marita Slon, Henry Tolman, Michelle Tommaso, and Anthony Vogt.

This is the future of printmaking. What you will see? Etching, Silkscreen, Collage, Papermaking, Lithography, Woodcut, the list goes on forever.

Plus there will be food??? Yum! Food&Art!

Meet Your Printmaker

Desciption on their site:

"Meet Your Printmaker will keep you informed of commercial and independent printers and printmakers all over the world. From woodcut to offset. Our goal is to become a directory and resource for artists and designers looking to work or collaborate with unique printers and printmakers.

Too often, especially in the design world, printers are uncredited and behind the scenes. We would like to bring them forward. So, let us know about your shop or a shop you work with. Email us with links, studio images, recent work, etc. Email links for consideration.

Print is alive."

.....This is very important!!!!!!

Found on the Little Friends of Printmaking blog - & here is their website - ... based in Milwaukee, WI

5 color silkscreen mask

listen i know people (ahem!) are going to blog but i am going to add something i've made to the mix

a chicken with lips face mask

today i worked on a sort of weird process, a reduction silkscreen? i used the red blockout liquid we have in the studio and planned out the colors (like woodcut) -- i like working this way because everything turns out a little more painterly (i do the color separations with a paintbrush directly on the screen rather than going through the acetate and exposing)---the process is a little quicker also.

i'm going to be giving away or selling this edition (for like a dollar each) at my senior show among other will susan b and panos p---our show's april 30th!!!!!!!!!!

show in the city ya'll

The Swiss Institute is having a very temporary show called "Dark Fair" this weekend in the city. It looks awesome! A lot of cool blacklight weird art prints by contemporary illustrators/comic book artists will be showing there, plus other stuff. Here's the press release:

Swiss Institute [SI]
495 Broadway 3rd Floor
New York NY 10012
Tel 212.925.2035
Fax 212.925.2040

Directions: Broadway between Broome and Spring Street

Presented by the Milwaukee International
Opening, March 28, 6 PM - 12 AM

This subversive and experimental miniature art fair will take place without the use of natural or electric light. An international selection of galleries and artists will display work custom to these conditions, using candlelight, flashlights, oil lamps, work that glows in the dark, light sculpture, battery powered film and video, and unplugged performances. In this cavernous underworld of exchange, visitors will experience art in completely new ways: featuring shadowy bar booths, dimly lit VIP chill-out zones, peddle-powered film projectors and gramophone DJ's.

In addition to custom booths there will be space available for individual artist projects, screenings, and performances including an indoor sculpture garden.
