Shockpress #printweek had the honor of hosting Beauvais Lyons at Wichita State University this past week. I am grateful for having met Beauvais, really a great person and print artist to work with. Check out his work and a new series of circus prints.
Below is the final print image by Beauvais Lyons.
Finally started back printing this year…a bit nervous and serious I suppose. Ha. I’ve struggled to recenter and remain focused on my work these past few months. Now it’s go time!
Ideas for some installations I’m working on in my studio. Mailboxes, pandas, and sunsets.
Excited about taking part in curating work for a new print exhibition Printmaking Is Imaginative in one of the galleries at the Wichita Art Museum, Wichita KS. Thanks to the opportunity and organization of Lisa Volpe, museum curator. The show will be on view in the Vollmer Gallery from March 11 through November 6, 2016
“This first exhibition in the series, Printmaking is Imaginative, explores artists’ use of varied techniques to create vivid, absorbing works of art that explore imaginative subjects.” -WAM
Down in the art vaults with artist & curatorial staff Heather Bal.
I selected this print by Frank Stella, one of my favorite artists using every print process in this one piece.

Working on some graphite drawings tonight for a new lithograph in the making of a upcoming installation
Ended the year with a bang….now time is ticking. Last year of grad school, so let’s do this!
