The Printmaking Open Studio (Third Thursdays) 10:00am-2:00pm
Open Studios are a time for you to come into the Black-Eyed Press and use the space. We want to keep this accessible and fun while spurring on creative artwork.
We do ask that you bring your own supplies including ink, inking knives, brayers etc for printmaking. This is not a workshop so please call ahead if you have no printmaking experience. Instruction may involve additional fees.

Listening: the integration of text and image
New Date TBA
Many writers make art many artists write. How does the artist that does both find ways to bring these mediums together in ways that strike and affect the audience experiencing the work. How do we express the thought that sits right behind our eyes and makes us want to scream or laugh or hideaway? How can we elicit thought in the viewer? The use of words as imagery or along side imagery can magnify these responses.
In this one-day workshop, artist Samira Gdisis take participants on a journey that encourages them to listen to the internal voice inside them and the voices they hear outside and around them and then to integrate voice into imagery. The investigation will include things like:
Eavesdropping and the art of random words.
Preparing to create: the exercise of daily prompts.
Incorporating text and typography: Aren’t they the same thing?
Mark making, monotyping and bookbinding
Other ways to punctuate
