Stove Factory Open Studios

Last week was the first weekend, and this week is the last weekend, for the Stove Factory Open Studios in Charlestown, at 523 Medford St. There’s art in the gallery downstairs, and I’ll be teaching classes on Saturday and having a guest artist staffing the space on Sunday. Here are some pics from last weekend!

Stove Factory Open Studios This Weekend and Next

Just a quick note to remind everyone that the Stove Factory building in Charlestown, 523 Medford Street, is having Open Studios both this Saturday and Sunday and next Saturday and Sunday. Come out to see the members’ show in the gallery, and come up to the second floor to check out Reflex Letterpress and other artists’ studios!

Memorial Service Program

I just completed a really nice piece, figured I’d post it here. This is two-colors, PANTONE 709 and Cool Gray 6 on both sides, printed on Lettra 110#. Paper size 16″ x 8″, folded to 8″ x 8″. Lovely stuff.

More Fun Holiday Blocks!

I’ve been having a fun time on eBay finding printing blocks, and not only holiday-themed cuts for the upcoming Albertine class on November 10th. If you’re not in the mood for a dreidel or turkey, perhaps a filing cabinet or abacus would be more your speed?

Better Rag Control

Brought in another oily waste can to better use the cleaning rags. Used rags in one bin, usable rags in the other. What’s a usable rag? If it still has white parts, it’s still usable, at least for first-pass press cleanup.

A Short Philosophical Video Essay on Printing

A few years back, Tim O’Donnell of Pixela Pictura interviewed me at the Bow & Arrow Press, talking about printmaking, the reasons to print things, and many other subjects besides. Both of us forgot to do anything with the footage until just recently, but the result is a pretty interesting little philosophical amuse bouche. Please enjoy!
