Create a large woodcut with BIG INK at Northampton Print & Book Fair
BIG INK is pleased to partner with the Northampton Print & Book Fair and Zea Mays Printmaking's Print Fair North in Northampton, MA for a one-day large woodcut printing session October 2nd, 2016. We will be utilizing BIG INK's mobile 48” x 96” etching press to pull prints. Artists are invited to submit a proposal to create a woodcut, at least 24” x 36” in dimension, online at www.bigink.org on or before July 18th, 2016.
If accepted, artists have two months prior to the event
to carve their image into a piece of plywood. Lyell Castonguay and Carand Burnet, directors of BIG INK, remain in contact with the artists to provide guidance and
technical support when needed. Eight artists will be chosen. Artists may also work collaboratively to create a single woodcut, list both names on the application. Previous printmaking experience is helpful but not required.
