Recent activities: SGC, Under the Blankets, Print Camp 2018

It's been a long time since I've updated here- I've been teaching new classes, setting up studio equipment, and generally settling into all the new tasks of a new job.

A few things happening though:

I just got back from the SGC (Southern Graphics Council) conference in Las Vegas. I went to several great panels and was also looking at some potential artists for a print show I'm putting together this coming year.

I'm a part of this show, opening on May 4th in Pittsburgh:

And, I was selected to be a part of Print Camp 2018 at Printmakers Open Forum in Oxford, PA the first week of June, where I will be focusing on multi-plate intaglio and experimenting with non-toxic grounds. It looks like it's going to be rad!

New Job

News: I am heading to Appalachia, having accepted a position as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Art and Design at Marshall University in Huntington, WV, where I will be teaching printmaking and the book arts starting in the fall. The other faculty are interesting and supportive, and the facilities are great- in a newly converted six-story downtown department store building, built in 1902. If you are ever in Huntington, give a holler.

I'm getting caught up here keeping track of some of my goings on.

In January I was invited to be a part of a show at Space Gallery in Jacksonville, called A More Perfect Union.

There's a blurb about the show here:

The opening was super- showcasing the diverse and growing Jacksonville arts scene.

University of North Florida

I've been neglecting various things, including updating here, because I started teaching at the University of North Florida as a Visiting Assistant Professor in Printmaking. I'm teaching a lot of old and new stuff, the students are really engaged and I like Florida so far. I will hopefully post some things as I go along.

Artist Talk and Workshop at Oberlin College

I was invited to give an artist's talk and workshop in Nanette Yannuzzi's book arts class at Oberlin College in April. Nanette specifically asked for me to do a more advanced book structure with her bookbinding enthusiast students. So, over two days we combined making paste paper with a drum leaf binding. Here are some photos from the workshop.
