Great day as a very small, lovely print day became 9 people watching the Kentucky Derby and printing solarplates, Silk-Cut lino and clay plates.
So wonderful to feel the prints being made all over the world in the last 24 hours!
Let’s make it happen! Post your pics today!
As of April 23, 2016, we have registered thousands of printmakers in 31 US states and 32 countries. Our facebook posts have reached over 14,000 printmakers, and dozens of new participants are “liking” us everyday.
Printing on May 7, 2016 means you are part of a world wide community of like minded creative people, all taking the time to do what we all love to do, all at the same time.
How truly inspiring. Thank you all and happy printing!
I just got back from the Southern Graphics Conference in Portland. We were blessed with lovely weather and the company of many wonderful printmakers. The conference was held in many locations in downtown Portland. Notable was the beautiful Pacific Northwest College of Art. There conference participants could experience new techniques and see master printers at work. There were many exciting exhibitions and good panel discussions. On Friday night a shop in the industrial area of Northeast Portland threw a fabulous print party, with steam roller printing and screenprinting on just about anything.
We were able to get the word out on Print Day in May, and we hope to have even more participants this year than last. Help us achieve our goal! Let all of your printmaking friends and acquaintances know of PDM May 7, 2016. And of course, post on the blog and let us know where you will be printing.
You’ll be printing of course! Please let us know where/when /how you will be participating in Print Day in May. Print with someone new, host a PDM party, post pictures, visit our FB page and like us, get the word out!
let’s do it again in 2016! Spread the word and let’s get even more printmakers to work “together” on May 7, 2016. Let us know what you’ll be doing on that day. We want text and pictures!!!!!
Here is a link to an article I wrote for the Mid America Print Council Journal. Pictures and everything!
Thank you Jennifer Ghormley for asking me to write this, and for encouraging me to do so!
Thank you so much to the 2015 Print Day in May team!
Gina Thoeni-Bence, Beth Truso, Marina Orlova and Cheryl Sward. PDM would not have existed this year without you!
And to Eddie Gil de Montes, who restructured our blog-a thousand thanks.
Yours in Print,
