This week I would have been in Puerto Rico amongst some amazing printmakers at sgcinternational . This pandemic has affected so many artists and makers. But it feels like this has made our printmaking community grow stronger through support and encouragement.
I am insta-raffling this diptych of two screenprints to support the 7hillscenter. These were to be shown at the now-postponed #sgci2020op sgcinternational conference in Puerto Rico this week, but now will go towards raising funds for a great local organization.
Over the last few weeks I have thought a lot about those experiencing homelessness and food insecurity during the COVID-19 virus pandemic. My community in Fayetteville is acting quick, but requires much more support as more and more people are affected. 7hills Homeless Center offers a food pantry, clothing room, and dozens of other resources to assist people. I hope that you are able to support those who are vulnerable here and in your own communities during this time.
To enter: make a one-time gift of $10 to 7hills Homeless Center (link in bio) and send a screenshot of your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org. Every $10 will count as one entry.
The raffle will close next Wednesday (8 April) and I will live-stream me and my dogs drawing a name at 4:00 P.M. CST.
Whoever is the winner will receive this diptych of two prints via FedEx, shipping covered by me, the week after the raffle. It's that simple!

Unfortunately the national printmaking conference in Puerto Rico was postponed, but luckily SGCI had the great idea of turning the open portfolio event into a virtual one. Check at my work and others at #sgci2020op #printmaking #silkscreen #screenprinting #collageart #collagraph #speedballart #speedballdemoartist...
This first print, "Savages" was made for a portfolio for sgcinternational exchange this year. Unfortunately, it has obviously been canceled. SGCI is also doing a virtual open portfolio by tagging #sgci2020op, so here is some of my newest work.
