Printmaker Geekery Alert!!!

Here is my first pic from the 2010 Mid-Atlantic Print Conference in Minneapolis, MN:

Cole Rogers, Master Printer at Highpoint Center for Printmaking, and Zac Williams-Bliss, his assistant, are demonstrating a large-scale, multi-layered, pin-registered chin colle technique they perfected with the help of Brian Shure. Shure studied with Chinese and Japanese scroll mounters to perfect this, I have to say, impressive technique. And they are working LARGE, with multiple layers of print, on very thin gampi. That grayish thing that Cole is brushing on is the print.

Very excited about the possibilities for combining multiple media on paper together! That is a Julie Mehretu print they are using for the demo, by the way.
