Panel Session 1: “The Printmaker as Collector”, Nicole Geary and Lisette Chavez

9:30 ‐ 11:30 am Stiefler Recital Hall

Printmakers are primed to be in tune with the act of collecting. We are known to work in series, creating images that can be thought of as multiple originals. In much the same way, a collection of objects can be compared to these multiples, as the gathering of a certain kind of item reflects differences and unique variables within a genre. Not only is one able to acquire a wealth of prints as a printmaker, but one can also acquire a wealth of objects as a collector. In some cases, those “object collectors” happen to be printmakers. The satisfaction of creating and collecting multiples is a trait that we wholeheartedly understand. The printmakers that we have chosen to highlight in this panel have a need to fulfill that repetition and pattern in their personal spaces. What do these different collections say about the work, and how do they reflect or reveal the way we tell our own unique stories? In our interviews and investigations, we hope to better understand our printmaking community and how they interpret their concrete and collectible surroundings in a digital world.

9:00 ‐ 10:30 am Knobview Hall, room KV025

This demonstration will reveal Lichliter’s method for printing lithography on wood, a dynamic process that allows for unique aesthetic, green printing and inexpensive access.

Demo Session 1: “Printing with Light, Hot Stamp Foil” with Christina Humble (repeat from Thursday)

9:00 ‐ 10:30 am Knobview Hall, room KV125

Hot stamp foil adds an unmatchable luster and light to prints and other 2D art works; it adds movement as well as innumerable colors textures and patterns to enhance an artist's work. This demonstration will review ways to work with foil in print shops with access to hot plates, or even at home with a tandard iron. Foil imaging is relatively new to printmaking, however, the attention grabbing vibrancy and pallet variety allow an artist to add details that have potential to compete in modern and ever changing visual culture.
