When I was doing archives this morning, I noticed that the message
from Robert Viana did not appear in the digest, so I'm repeating it
here for digest people so they don't miss out on it.

Northeast Ohio

"Hello to everyone!
The printmakers of the world website is coming along nicely! I am now
trying to add a CALL FOR ENTRIES/LISTINGS section! Geared
specifically torwards printmaking. It has be an idea of mine for
sometime, I know that it is sometimes a pain to sift through all the
listings in magazines to find the ones just possible exhibitions just
for printmakers. So now, I am doing it for everyone.
I have a question for anyone to answer. The more the merrier. I have
been carving on my woodblocks now steadily and quite often and I find
that as of late, my back is really starting to hurt. Does this happen
to the rest of you? And if so, any tips as to what to do? (that
doesn't involve stopping, I am a workoholic, there is no stopping)
I have tried concentrating on good posture, but that is a joke.
This may seems a silly question due to the amount of variables in
each situation and person, but I had to ask.
Ok, Peace.
Cheers, rob.
Link your names to the world map!
see ya!"

I recently received this message, which may interest some of you:


The BIMPE (Biennial International Miniature Print Competition) is held
every 2 years in Vancouver, Canada. The 4th BIMPE will take place next
summer. The deadline for entries is April 30th 2006. More information and
guidelines for entry are available at:

We are trying to reach printmakers from all corners of the world, and
would be grateful if you could forward this to your members/ students, or

Thanks for your help

Get a kitchen timer, set it for 15 minutes...every time it rings get up and stretch and bend your back the other way. I promise you this will work wonders, but you have to do it religiously. The main problem is you do not change positions enough...this will take care of it. If the problem persists beyond doing this, I suggest you limit carving to the hours in one day that do not hurt...your body will appreciate it.
I have a friend that did not do this and actually damaged the nerves in her neck and arm and she cannot do fine work. Even carving a pumpking makes her hands and arms go to sleep. So take time to move is a kindness to your body and your future work.
Best to all,

This site looks like it is going to be great. The exhibition opportunities section will be much appreciated and the interactive map feature is very cool. I look forward to using it when you officially unveil it.

Sorry to be such a dolt, but very recently the Baren Digest has begun to arrive in html with photos as well as bells and whistles that it never had before. Over a year or so ago we went to the new format, but my html mailings from the Baren were 99.9% of the time in plain text. Is this something Baren staff changed or some automatic update on my end? Love seeing the faces.
