Join Tugboat Printshop as they talk in depth about their collaborative color woodcut prints & process. Artists Paul Roden and Valerie Lueth will discuss their daily operations running a start-up artist press & show examples of their many original color woodcut prints published over the past 7 years working together. The artists will demonstrate the printing of one of their full color prints & will have additional examples of their work and blocks for browsing.
Paul Roden and Valerie Lueth are the collaborative woodcut artists Tugboat Printshop. The couple has been publishing their traditionally hand-crafted color woodblock print editions from Pittsburgh, PA since 2006. Their intricate color woodcuts celebrate the natural world and our relationship to it. With extreme focus on craft and detail, the artists build idealistic, meticulously patterned worlds with their printed images. Rich color is layered in multiple impressions from hand-drawn, hand-carved and individually printed wood blocks. Tugboat Printshop's narrative is one of sustainability, resourcefulness, and upbeat do-good attitude. To view Tugboat Printshop's woodblock prints, visit www.tugboatprintshop.com.

Marnix Everaert is a Belgian artist living and working in Ghent, Belgium. He is a professor of non-toxic printmaking at the Academy for Visual Arts DKO, Ghent. Everaert draws inspiration from science, particularly scientific illustrations from the 18th and 19th centuries. His work invokes marvel in the unknown, a reaction to a world in which everything is explained and taken for true. See more of Everaert's work on his website: http://www.marnix-everaert.be/.

This September, RBPMW will host works from a print exchange that has traveled the globe. Earlier this year Art House Co-op asked 500 printmakers to submit an edition of 12 prints in response to the theme, "The Drive Home. " In return each artist received 10 prints from other participants. These works now find a permanent home at the Brooklyn Art Library, but not before one last stop: Blackburn 20/20.
