Yes, some of them are at the same times. THis is because we are
anticipating around 1200 people at the conference, and each tour can only
handle around 15-20 or so people. So there need to be enough things going
on so that everyone can attend something interesting. I'm afraid it means
picking and choosing. The curators won't be leading the tours at other
times, but the museums are open. Prints are not always on display, though -
these tours are planned specially for the conference. To see specific
things, you do need to make an appointment. I'm working on a special issue
of the Maryland Printmakers' newsletter, in which we are publishing
interviews with the curators about their collections. It will probably be
up on the Md Printmakers website around the beginning of March - I'll let
you know. With each article, there will be information about how to see the
collections on your own, and you could see what you could arrange. But if
there's something you would really like to see, I would sign up for the
tour as soon as possible, because they'll fill up first-come-first-serve.

A couple of monkeys flew into my mailbox recently - one from Gayle
Wohlken, and one from Elizabeth Atwood! Wonderful monkeys! Not to
fret, mine will be in the mail before the year ends..... So how are
the other 40 people in my (late) boat faring? Me? If your monkey
lands in my mail box in the New Year - I don't care. Anytime is a good
time to recieve a monkey in the mail!

Oh, and Jan Telfer: Your monkey is *still* throwing that stuff around!
Will it never end? :-)

ohhh! monkeys!

man, i wish i would have re-joined baren earlier; i
have the POIFEKT lino block of a monkey! i don't think
i ever did pull an edition off of it.

i suppose this would be an appropriate place to
re-introduce myself...

my name is keri marion, and i used to lurk around in
here a couple few years back when another couple-yu
baren folks in washington got me addicted to

my last years of college forced me to abandon
printmaking for a bit and concentrate on what i know
best: painting. but now i have the time and space to
get involved in prints again.

now i live in california, and i just opened my first
outside studio (and occasional gallery) in cannery row
and have started hand-pulling prints and have a new
acquaitance in the building with a press (drool).

teaching my boyfriend the little i know about
hand-pulling (i mostly just made blocks.. i seemed to
like that the best) and we're learning together.

anyhow... just thought i'd say hello, so *helleeewww*
