Wine + Printmaking = FUN!

This Saturday June 12, Downtown Maysville has a wine/art festival on Market street.  It’s a charming event surrounded by stunning architecture on a brick road beside our fountain with art, live music and wine from local wineries. 

I’m going to try something different.

I am exploring the art of traditional printmaking.  I’m bringing my antique etching press to the event to setup a temporary print shop.

I spent the week carving a woodcut especially for this festival.  It’s appropriately a vine of grapes. 

Here’s the interesting part…

I am going to have a special edition of prints, but they will only be printed AT THE FESTIVAL.  Which means, if 2 people buy the print, it will be a very rare edition of 2.  If 30 people buy a print, it will be a special edition of 30.   They will all be printed on site.

These are sample prints…to make sure the wood block was cut properly.

This will be a great addition to your art collection…so come early if you want the number one print.  If you haven’t had too much wine, you can help put your print through the press.  I am also going to print a few monotypes…which is fascinating to watch.
