MCAD Polymergravure Class

The MCAD Printmaking Studio


Lately, the emphasis around here has been on polymergravure. For six weeks I taught an introductory class in the process as part of the Continuing Education programme at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) with 12 students. Above is a quick iPhone panorama of the printmaking studio at MCAD with many of the students.


During one session we had John Pearson, a Highpoint co-op member, come in to show and talk about his beautiful two and three colour polymergravure prints. John, who incorporates many traditional intaglio techniques into his work such as dry point, spit bite and aquatint, took one of my workshops at Highpoint a couple of years ago and has really embraced the polymer process and is producing some amazing prints.


As well as this wonderful printshop they also have a great darkroom specifically for the polymer process which I helped set up a while back. I’m hoping that the class will be run again in the Autumn, and it’s looking likely that it will, so sign up for my infrequent newsletter to receive updates. Below are just three of the images that the students printed as small editions.


Small Print Offer

I’m making this image, The Empire State Building (from the Brooklyn Bridge), the next edition in my irregular series of Small Print Offers. There’s no deadline to order by but there are only 10 prints in the edition. The last print offer before this, Dark Matter XI, was in an edition of 15 and sold out fast.
