Wednesday, June 8
Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop
323 West 39th St, Second Floor
New York, NY 10018
Please join us for an artist talk and demo. In this talk Paul Loughney will demonstrate the vast array of effects that can be gained by using multiple color rubber stamps to create fast, small scale print production. The demo will feature options for creating prints in one of two ways: a singular fine arts image or more a craft element that employs both a single image and pattern making. The talk is a preview of what is to come in his workshop which will run from June 18-19th. The workshop will cover use of tools, registration of image to paper, creating a key block, different kinds of papers for printing and the differences between oil and water soluble inks.
Paul Loughney received his MFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University and his Certificate in Printmaking from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, PA. He has worked in a variety of 2D media including printmaking, drawing and painting, but has focused almost exclusively on collage since 2007.
