Dorothy's work is in this Members' Exhibit! (Sirl & Flow Series, "Exuberant"

After a tumultuous year of ups and downs pulling and pushing us towards and away from desired outcomes like a carnival ride, it’s time to freeze the action and pause at the height of possibility when the rush of energy invigorates and fills you with unbridled joy and exhilaration in the moment.

This year’s annual members’ exhibition asks our artists to savor the moment, revel with enthusiasm, and celebrate the exuberance of life with the Cajun French phrase “Laissez Les bons temps rouler!” — a version of “Let the good times roll!” For the exhibition, CCP asks its member artists to dig deep and reflect on the vibrancy of a life well-lived, experienced with relish and enthusiasm, the momentum behind making the days count. Grab that brass ring and jump in with both feet and show us your unbridled passion for being.

Waxing Poetic with Printmaking

An exciting online adventure to engage all the ways of using encaustic in printmaking. This expansive four-day session will include making encaustic monotypes, creating encaustic collagraph plates and printing these on many different papers including washi. We will explore printing by hand and press, relief and intaglio methods, eastern and western papers, and how to mount finished prints for presentation and sale. Many tips and tricks will be offered to insure your successful printmaking experience. Innovative materials like printing and stitching on Evolon will be introduced. Artists and printmakers of all levels are invited to attend this informational and fun class. (Dorothy will provide many handouts on techniques, step by step procedures and sources for materials.)

     Saturday and Sunday, March 26-27, 2022

Using a combination of innovative printmaking materials, participants will create plates with hot wax on Yupo, a synthetic paper support. Images can be painted, stamped, textured, incised, and scraped to produce a high and low plate surface ready to ink as either a relief or intaglio. These plates can be combined with monotype and drypoint, are economical, easily cleaned, stored, and cut with scissors or utility knives. Akua soy based inks will be used on a variety of print papers including washi (Japanese paper). Both hand and press printing options will be explored as well as the use of multiple color plates, transparency, and chine colle'. Part of the learning experience will include discussions of eastern and western papers, demonstrations, finished examples of all techniques and lots of individual attention. All are welcome, some print experience is helpful but not necessary.
