Ox-Bow

This past August I took a week-long course in alternative printmaking at Ox-Bow, a school of art and artists’ residency, founded in 1910 on the shores of Lake Michigan near Saugatuck. It is affiliated with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Holly Greenburg, an extraordinary printmaker, taught the class, and I learned a lot from my fellow students as well. Here are a couple of the my prints from the class. The plates are matboard upon which textures are created, then sealed, inked and printed in a technique very much like printing an etching.
