Create a large woodcut with BIG INK at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking
BIG INK is pleased to partner with the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, CT for two one-day large woodcut printing sessions Saturday and Sunday October 8th – 9th, 2016. We will be utilizing CCP's 39” x 72” 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 25th, 2016.
If accepted (notification August 1st), 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. Thirteen artists will be chosen, six will print one day and seven the next. Artists may also work collaboratively to create a single
woodcut, list both names on the application. Previous printmaking experience is helpful but not required.
