Various Artsy updates

We have a few things we want to draw your attention to today:

First, thanks to the Washington Post’s Express paper for the big reproduction of Lila’s prints “Mother and Child” and “Credenza.”  We were very excited to see such great promotion in today’s Weekend Pass section.

"UK Impression XVI" by Martha Oatway, Gelatin Print, 5x5 in, 2010. A quick gallery shot, but even at low reproduction quality you can see how delicious this print is!

Second, we have an update to voting Martha Oatway as your favorite AA2A artist.  Please, when you click on the link to vote, make sure you click on “University of Central Lancashire ,” as that is where she is currently working!  If Martha gets top vote, she will be promoted on our websites, facebook and twitter pages, and has the opportunity to have her project featured in London at the AA2A Briefing Day for participating colleges and funders.

Third, we found a very interesting post via Maureen @Doallas on twitter today, all about Gauguin as a printmaker.  This post is by the Indianapolis Museum of Art, written in conjunction with their exhibition “Gauguin as Printmaker: the Volpini Suite” opening tomorrow.

"Jazz Piano" by Lila Oliver Asher, linocut, 18x22 in

Finally, if you are a a printmaker (or just like printmaking) don’t forget two things:  Lila’s artist demonstration this Saturday at 2 pm sharp (demo should run about 30 mins) and also that we are just over a month away from National Small Works Early Bird deadline.  Any artists wishing to apply ONLINE may do so for the reduced fee of $20/4 images.  (Sorry, CD submissions are still the full rate of $40).  The full prospectus can be seen here; Spread the word and get your work in early!

  1. Glad you saw the post on Gauguin. I don’t recall ever hearing or seeing anything about Gauguin’s prints, so I, too, enjoyed the introduction.

    That Oatway gelatin print is wonderful.

  2. I didn’t know he was much of a printmaker, either! I wish it was closer so I could visit the exhibit.
