Prints: Strange Days

On March 29, Kurt printed a variation of an old design that had been sitting dormant and neglected, having never seen the light of day. Until now! It felt like a good way to start off 2020 and a much-needed bright spot during these otherwise unusual days. The edition features a randomized mix of colors in a tight edition of 19. All signed, dated, and numbered.

Brilliant Day!

knits_prints_lizA long overdue “thank you” for a stellar Cherokee Heights Arts Festival 2019! I got to spend the day with this lovely lady and a steady stream of art lovers that didn’t let up all day long. We had our best year yet! The planning committee and roadies did a superb job of making this a seamless and memorable experience (as always). Great music, food, drinks, and crowds with the most artists participating in fest history! We’re excited to see the momentum and enthusiasm for CHAF continue to grow while being a part of it all. We’ll see you there next year!

Prints: Salvaged Chevron

When Serena & Lily commissioned a custom run of “Untitled (Chevron)” a couple years back, I ended up with a few extras—misprints tossed aside in the scratch n’ dent file. There they lingered, stuck in limbo on the stack as they couldn’t be used in the official print run nor sold elsewhere. Fast forward one year when I was printing a chevron in metallic gold. On a lark, I overprinted on one of the discarded prints. The gold looked good paired with the white and orange so I printed a few more, cut them down and made them available as a set of three-color miniature prints.

One of my favorite things about screenprinting is having the chance to revisit old work with fresh eyes and potentially create something new. Sometimes the old work holds up on its own and I wonder why I dismissed it in the first place. Other times an additional layer of color is just enough to push it to the next level. This proved to be the case with Chevron 2.0.

These salvaged prints—along with many new hand-screened editioned prints and monoprints—will be available at Cherokee Heights Arts Festival in Marietta, Georgia on Saturday, November 14.
