Master Class: Advanced Printmaking: Topics and Techniques
Judy Pfaff, Brian Shure
This unique opportunity for advanced printmakers creates a forum for dialog about how to curate their practice to push work into a strong direction. Artists are invited to work on self-directed projects in the printmaking area of their choosing while receiving technical support in tandem with critical feedback. Opportunities for technical demonstrations, group critique, and one-on-one mentorship make up the structure of this master class. Brian Shure will be present for the entire duration of the workshop; Judy Pfaff will join daily from 1 to 5 pm. Please submit your portfolio by January 27th for priority consideration. Portfolios will continue to be accepted on a rolling basis. Instructions on how to submit your portfolio are as follows: Submit digital images of your work in one single PDF (as opposed to individual JPG attachments) via email directly to Artistic Director Liz Ferrill at firstname.lastname@example.org The single PDF must be less than 10 MB to be considered. Include 5-10 images of your work with image identification that lists the title, media, dimensions and year of each image. While not required, it is helpful to see an artist statement addressing the images you send. Include “Advanced Portfolio Review” in the subject line of your email, as well as the title of the workshop for which you are applying. Please provide a phone number where you can be reached and a link to your website. Submissions that do not follow the requested directions will not be reviewed. To be considered, we must receive portfolios by 5 PM MST Friday, Feb. 10th, 2023. If we receive your materials after Feb. 10th, you will be considered on a space-available basis. We will email you regarding your status on or before Friday, Feb. 24, 2023. If you are accepted, a deposit of $650 will be required within one week of notification of acceptance to hold your place.
