I was at the University of Florida from March 31-April 1 to work with Ellen Knudson and participants in a workshop on techniques for adapting wood veneer matrices and steel wire components to be printed using traditional letterpress equipment.
End of Times 2: The Time is Now is a broadside exchange reflecting on the state of the world from an optimistic viewpoint and promises to be an exciting collection of beauty and vantage points with regard to perseverance. Letterpress printers from around the world will be creating an edition of 80 prints that capture their personal styles and reactions to the current world climate.
The collection will be on exhibit at the College of Saint Benedict Clemens Library in St. Joseph, MN from April 20-May 20, 2017 and will also travel to Minnesota Center for Book Arts (Minneapolis), East Carolina University (Greenville, NC), and the School of Visual Concepts (Seattle, WA).

From March 15-18, 2017 the Southern Graphics Council International Conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia. In conjunction with this conference, I will have work in the exhibition Outliers: On the Road to Terminus at The Callanwolde Fine Arts Center from March 1-April 7, 2017.
I'm also participating in two portfolios: Throwing Lines on view at the conference and Designing Women on view at Murmer Media.

I recently taught a weekend workshop on printing with traditional letterpress equipment using matrices made from wood veneer and steel wire. It was a lovely group of students and with gratitude I send a sincere thank you to AB Gorham for organizing the workshop and facilitating the success of the weekend; I also send another huge thank you to Denise Bookwalter for being such a gracious and generous host at the Small Craft Advisory Press (SCAP) at Florida State University. Thank you to the Southeast Chapter of the Guild of Bookworkers and SCAP for sponsoring the workshop. Check out this article about the workshop: SCAP and SEGBW Host Letterpress Workshop in Tallahassee
