Well, sorry folks, but those links didn't work when I sent them,
either. I would suggest checking the archives or if you didn't toss it
out already (the old version of Vol. 30, #2913 of the digest) for the

Thank you Julio. Now I see the enlargement of the enlargement of beautiful
embossed ginko leaves!
Ginko trees line some streets of New York and if I am in the right place at
the right season I will collect some fallen leaves. They are supposed to be
very old trees , from the time of the dinosaurs.

Hi Guys:

It's been a while since I posted, but I've been sooo darn busy trying to
graduate this past semester. Finally after 20 years I've got my bachelors
in art. I plan to move on to earn a graduate degree, let's just hope it
doesn't take me another 20 years! Anyway, I've been so focused on my studio
classes that I missed the sign up for the Year of the Rooster cards, though
I made several different rooster blocks in my relief printing class! You
know that signup is right at the same time as scrambling to get all class
projects ready for finals and prepare for the holidays...anyway excuses
aside, can I, may I, pretty please be added to the Rooster card list?
Please, please, please, please pleeeaaasssse!

Happy Western New Year,
Patti Phare-Camp

hello and happy new year to Bareners near and far--
i have pretty much lurked for a couple of years now-
times flies--

many many newcomers ,which is heartening
--HELLO to you all---

I am Gillyin Gatto
an artist/homesteader/writer ETC
living 32 years in MACHIAS MAINE USA
i often participate in exchanges and used to talk more
when i first found the BAREN around '99

i have a website which
is not active
i sell my work professionally in an" economically depressed " area-
mainly in galleries- Bar Harbor, Eastport,Machias
, i did the art show circuit in Maine for ten years. and
now starting to get commissions from the "gentrified" folks
who move to the downeast coast...
i have a gallery on my homestead and do workshops and classes
occasionally here too

this summer i completed an eight foot SOARING EAGLE woodcut
which was commissioned
another wonderful opportunity to do a huge print!
because someone else wanted me to...

i would not have done such a big piece to offer for sale --
i have
been using the BAREN exchanges' restricted size limits
as an exercise in working small
as most folks complain of lack of wall space

i have a one Woman show at Univ. of Maine Machias Art Galleries
Thirty years of Woodcuts and Beyond by Gillyin Gatto
i will show monumental woodcuts ,woodcut collages and and some Pastel on
plywood" paintings" also , along with my collected woodcuts (over 100) of
thirty years on the homestead -
-it is really fun trying to get them all printed !

we will also be hanging some of the Baren exchanges
not sure which yet --
Bernie Vinzani -whom some may know as a paper maker--
is the gallery director --
he and I will pick out a couple of exchanges to show
or maybe--- all the 4 years of postcards that i have

if you want your rooster to be in the show
better rise and shine
cut and print
and get it done :-)

BAREN is now i would say
really part of my life blood---
keeps me going thru trying times
literally, by being a* woodcut anchor* in the real world

thank you BAREN and all out there who make it happen--

Maria - i will email you off list about the vegas figurative show

today i sent out my ROOSTER postcards,
tomorrow will start printing my block for exchange #23--

in both cases i have utilized an already- in -existance- block
to create a new image

my rooster is a 4 x 6 section printed from the larger linocut,
12 x 18 "When the AXE Falls "
i was very amazed at the results
and how the white negative space took on a life of its own
which i had never noticed before in the large print

my ex #23 " hommage to a printmaker" block
is a portrait of Gillyin and Newf ( me and a dog of mine-
been gone ten years )
than has sat unfinished

i cut it down and rethought my image with Lenard Baskin in mind
particularly his well known woodcut" the anatomist"
i was able to finally solve this seemingly, for me, unsolvable block
because of the perspective that the BAREN gave me in this themed exchange

Baskin taught a t UMASS Amherst
when i went there in late sixties (BFA '70)
i did not have him for printmaking
but was well aware of his work
always loving the " liney" hands and faces of his early figures

and since we are doing homages --
i decided to call the print -
after my favorite DOG short storey
by Elsie Singmaster Lewars

hopefully you will be able to access my show on the UMM website
i will advice at the time--

keep up the good carving, folks
and thanks for all the inspiration......
