So many postcards!

Sent to Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Utah, and some other places. Made with monoprint, stenciling, collagraph, relief etching, and handwork.

Postcards made by Camilla Taylor.

If you’d like one, you can simply purchase a postcard here.

If you’ve ever purchased artwork from me, you can send me a picture of it and the room it’s displayed in, like these lovely people have. And I will send you a postcard as a thank you.

Or, let me know if you want to trade.

Our studio manager makes postcards out of the prints she makes while demonstrating printmaking techniques. Come to monoprint this Saturday to learn how she made them!

PHOTOPOLYMER GRAVURE WORKSHOP
Taught by Karen Fiorito
Photopolymer Gravure is a relatively easy method of creating intaglio prints from both photographic and hand-drawn imagery. Photopolymer prints can rival copper plate photogravures, but are processed in a fraction of the time and materials, and require a fairly minimal learning curve.
In this workshop, you will learn how to make a photogravure using a photopolymer plate. You will learn how to make a film with an imbedded random dot or halftone screen, print the film, expose and develop the plate, and print a signed and numbered edition of 5 prints.
 Instructor:
Karen Fiorito received her Master’s in Fine Art in Printmaking from Arizona State University and her Bachelor’s of Fine Art in Printmaking from the University of the Arts in Pennsylvania. Her work has been featured in major publications such as Art in America, the Huffington Post, the LA Weekly, and URB Magazine. She was the recipient of a Change, Inc. Grant from Robert Rauschenberg in 2004 and a Puffin Foundation Grant in 2005 for a billboard installation in Santa Monica.
Schedule:
Sunday, October 5th, 10-4pm
Saturday, October 11th, 10-4pm
Sunday, October 12th, 10-4pm
We must have a minimum of 3 students, and a maximum of 6, for this class.  This workshop is appropriate for beginning to advanced level artists. 6 students maximum, 3 students minimum. Tuition is $350 per student, and includes all necessary materials.
