Artist Demo: Collagraph Printing with Brooke Lambert

Brooke Lambert is a printmaker and painter whose work is largely influenced by the emotions and memories of the ocean and other natural environments. In her art she shares these moments of happiness and hope: the floating shadows you see submerged underneath a wave, the red tinge behind your eyelids while lifting your face to the sun, the pattern of a honeycomb or a fishing net, and all the beautiful shapes, forms, and color in nature. In our current climate, she feels strongly that it is important to share these moments of brightness, new life, and hope.

Lambert’s primary medium is collagraph printing, in which she builds low-relief plates that she then inks and runs through a printing press, creating embossed paper prints that invoke the textures and shapes of fishing ropes, leaves, and netting. She then paints the prints, adding rich, luminous color.

In her Artist Demo, Lambert will talk about her printmaking process to build, print, and paint her collagraphs, her view and outlook as an artist, and her artistic practice and journey. Her talk will include a hands-on printmaking demo and an artist talk including a video.

Artist Demo: Leslie Lyman

Much of Lyman’s work is about domestic life – past and present. She is drawn to objects and materials that carry messages from the home and from work in the home. Using these less traditional sculptural materials such as paper, cloth, thread and twine often means much problem solving.

In her Artist Demo, Lyman will discuss this work, her influences, motivations and process. She will show images both of her sculptural work and of her photography, along with examples of smaller sculptural pieces. There will be a hands-on demonstration of both Coptic bookmaking and the versatility of mending.

Artist Demo: Children’s Books – From Inspiration to Publication with Katia Wish

What does a journey from inspiration to publication look like? How do you start your process? From a character? From an idea? From a childhood memory? All of the above!

Join author-illustrator Katia Wish to see how she developed her books Raccoon’s Perfect Snowman and Sophie’s Animal Parade. From childhood memories, to initial character studies, to doodles/notes, to figuring out the heart of the story, to storyboards, to character consistency, to many versions of a dummy book, to submission. And as you think that the book is almost there, there are many more revisions with an editor and an art director. They help you make the book the best it can be!

Katia will bring her books and prints for sale (by cash or check only) — perfect for upcoming winter holidays!
