October Group Show

It’s official: the 2011-12 group of Print Arts Northwest Emerging Printmakers Residency participants will exhibit some work in October at Stonehenge Studios. Here’s some copy from their press release:

About Print Arts Northwest:
PAN’s mission is to educate our public about the rich, sophisticated art form that is so very accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds. PAN is proud to offer services to its members and community. We sponsor educational programs for artists and non-artists with lectures, demonstrations, classes and workshops. PAN also offers various outreach programs in the public and private school system providing opportunities for students to learn printmaking.

About Stonehenge Studios:
Stonehenge Studios hosts monthly art shows featuring a wide variety of artists: painters, photographers, printmakers, and sculpture artists. We have an artist reception every first Friday of the month, from 5:30-7:30. We are a community art space and enjoy showing work by new and seasoned artists alike. We have created a salon atmosphere and host several events each month including fine art, music, poetry and storytelling.

If you’re inclined to use Facebook to manage your social events, you can see and RSVP to the event here. If you want to see the show but won’t make it for opening, be advised that the women who run Stonehenge generally keep the location open from 10am – 5pm on weekdays. Their hours are flexible and occasionally unpredictable (the beautiful whim of a small business), so please call in advance so they know to expect you.

On a related note, I signed up for an e-mail newsletter service through TinyLetter. It’s free, and I’m a big fan of their easy-to-use, minimal design – no bells and whistles for me, thanks! Please click here to sign up, or visit  my website’s “about” page. Unlike this blog, the newsletter will only go out every other month or so, to announce when and where I’ll exhibit or share a new body of work. This blog is, I can admit, probably more interesting for printmakers than for fans and collectors.

The first newsletter that will go out in the next couple of days will be about the upcoming show at Stonehenge, so I apologize for the redundancy in advance, if you sign up after reading this post.
