While on a visit to the US for Philagrafika and the Southern Graphics Council conference, I was delighted to be invited to Rowan University by David Vaccaro, lecturer in printmaking.
Along with Jeremy Leckenbusch, my host and fellow Tamarind Institute graduate, we conducted an afternoon demonstration to the undergraduates on the printmaking program. The artist was student John Mitchell, who allowed us to process and proof his plate. It was thoroughly enjoyable to meet and talk to the students. We did well in keeping the pizza feast away from the press area.
We returned to assisted John in the editioning of the two runs for his print, a pale flat followed by the key. John is continuing with lithography and hopes to attend Tamarind's Summer Workshop next year.
