Time to say goodbye to Pressing Matters V: The Prinmaker's Group Show at the San Geronimo Valley Commnity Center. This year's exhibit is probably my favorite thus far. Here are just a few more parting shots from the show.
Gabriele Schwibach with her three color etchings from the show.
Katya McCulloch's impressive "Songbirds of
Iraq" multi color reduction block--an extremely complex print.
Sirima Sataman's "Somewhere on Swanton Road" - a very large and nicely executed block print.
Two figurative pieces, "Torso I" and "Torso II", by Barbara Morris--both monotypes.
Geoff Bernstein's "Pictograph I" . Geoff had rubber stamps made of his drawings for his multi media print series.
"Deer Isle, Haystack" a lithograph by Jack Kamesar .
I also included my "A Mazed Minotaur Pt. 2" two-color linocut in the show.
And my "Homesick James on Brown Paper Bag" block print
Another Zoltron silkscreen, "Yolandi Visser", this one printed on a piece of birch wood.
This sampling is still incomplete. I don’t have examples available of the other fine works by Bea Benjamin, Fred Lee Berensmeier, Geoff Bernstein, Martha Cederstrom, Diane Cokely, Dave Hunter, Katya McCulloch, Sirima Sataman or Xander Weaver-Scull. Thanks to everyone in the show.
Special thanks to Molly for hanging the show with me.
