i have a new appreciation for prints. went to 3 workshops connected to the new show at the opalka gallery. fantastically informative and lots to see. even tried a little etching.
no question in my mind that knowledge can increase art appreciation.
workshop presenters were from the ink shop printmaking center in ithaca, ny. http://www.ink-shop.org/
am i planning to do prints? not for now. so much preparation, material... i like to see what i get as i do it. on another hand, if the occasion presents itself...
