MCAD POLYMERGRAVURE CLASS
If you’ve ever wanted to learn the polymergravure process then you’ll want to join the MCAD mailing list because this February I’ll be teaching a six week evening class at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design as part of its Continuing Education programme.
The polymergravure process is an alternative and contemporary method to the traditional process of copperplate photogravure and uses polymer plates that are processed in water and are environmentally friendlier and quicker to work with.
This introductory workshop will guide participants through each stage of the process from preparing the original image file to the final print. Techniques covered will include how to make the film positives using Adobe Photoshop and an inkjet printer, how to expose and process the plates, contrast control and methods of inking, wiping and pulling prints. Space will be limited to 10 participants. Further details and registration will be announced by MCAD in mid-December.
I currently have five prints included in the latest show at Peterssen/Keller Architects in Minneapolis, alongside talented artists Peter Happel Christian, Brett Kallusky, Shana Kaplow, Eric Mueller and Laura Stack.
Inkjet print, 14″ x 14″ image size (framed to 20″ x 24″), open edition, $500.
THE TEMPLE OF APOLLO, ANCIENT CORINTH, GREECE
Platinum-palladium print, 8″ x 8″ image size (framed to 11″ x 14″), edition of 30, $800.
CUSTOM HAND-MADE PORTFOLIO CASES
I am now offering custom hand-made clamshell portfolio cases, slip cases and screw post portfolios for photographers and artists. Everything is made by hand, by me, in Minneapolis using the finest archival quality materials and book cloth. Options include debossing or hot foil stamping of names, titles or logos.
