Wondering what's the group's take as to the genre of woodblock prints and
if 'it' might be experiencing a 'new' resurgence.... partly due to the
online markets such as EBAY, Yahoo auctions, etc.........which makes it
easy for the average Joe to purchase ( & sell) prints, before only
available thru galleries in large cities and/or other professionals....

One look at the daily volume of woodblock prints sold on EBAY & YAHOO is
perhaps indicative that there is a growing market for our chosen technique
and that the internet has open the doors.

So true Julio-
I attended a lecture given by one of the print curators at MOMA at the
Southern Graphics Council conference last week- among their new aquisitions were
several woodcuts- very good sign yes? Bobette
