Visual Trick/ Visual Treat
October 1 – 30, 2016
As we enter the mystical season of Halloween, artists are invited to submit works that “trick” or “treat” us. Trick everyone with a trompe-l’oeil or treat us to some beautiful eye candy. Don’t be afraid to let your imagination conjure up something magical, supernatural or macabre!

Simple and Sophisticated Relief Printmaking
September 9-10, 2017, 10 am – 3 pm
A Two-Day Workshop
$150 Members/$180 Non-Members
Please register by August 30, to ensure that the workshop will run.
Relief printmaking is any technique where parts of the design are cut away (the negative), and the remaining part (the positive), is printed. Ink is applied by using an brayer or roller on the surface and printed by hand. We will work with a 4” x 6” size so that it can also be used for cards. Through demonstrations, we will explore one color, multiple colors and reduction as time permits. This workshop will use eco-friendly, water-based inks on linoleum, Soft-Kut, Mastercut or similar.
This seemingly naïve and childish medium can be very sophisticated. Picasso, Matisse, and many other famous artists experimented with relief techniques. Let your creative juices flow in a supportive, encouraging atmosphere.
Materials list provided at registration.

About Stephanie Navon-Jacobson:
As an artist, I am always observing the world around me. Whether floral, landscape, animal, or figure, abstract or realistic, my images always go back to nature. I am first and foremost a printmaker, although I work in other mediums, too. I am a printmaker who paints, rather than a painter who prints.
I was originally attracted to printmaking in college. I loved the studio community aspect as well as the various techniques. I like to experiment with various techniques. The possibilities seem endless. I also like the element of surprise each time you pull a print.
It is so satisfying to work with people who are new to printmaking or to teach experienced artists a new technique and watch their enthusiasm as they ‘get bit by the printmaking bug.’ Printmaking is such a versatile medium. It can stand alone or be incorporated with other mediums such as oil or watercolor. I encourage my students to add printmaking to their artistic arsenal and incorporate it with their other artistic endeavors.
