Regarding the Baren Summit Exhibition:

Yes, I am home during the day (most of the time). I will be out of
town for a couple of days when my kids visit while we have our annual
trek to the beach, but otherwise, there is usually someone around. I
will have a talk to the mail lady about the packages that arrive while
we're gone and hopefully no one will get their work returned. Gulp. No
- really, it should be fine.

This exhibition is for Summit Attendees - so if you are planning to
attend the summit, please - by all means, send me work! However, I
have to have it before Aug. l as the exhibition will be up for the
entire month. Therefore, it will do no good to bring stuff for the
exhibition when you come to the summit.

If you are sending work for the exhibition: a late thought has been
for you to include some extra's (can be work that is not for the walls)
for the bins. Those works do not need to be matted, but will need to
be in either shrinkwrap or acetate bags. And, please let me know a
price or NFS on whatever you send.

The request for no peanuts packaging has only to do with me chasing
those darned things around the studio! They refuse to stay in the
boxes and I always end up with a number of them on the floor. Bubble
wrap seems to work very nicely, and those air bags that Amazon sends so
freely are nice, too. Rumpled news print works well, also, though it
weighs more. I also save blocks and slabs of syrofoam that come in
other things just for this purpose.

Happy packing!

BTW - If you have registered for the summit and have not yet sent your
$75 - it would be appreciated! (If you have already told me you will
bring it with you then ignore this message, otherwise I would
appreciate more checks. ) I need to know you're REALLY coming, and
the fact that you are willing to trust me with your hard earned bucks
impresses me greatly. Especially since I've told you all that I'm
headed toward the casino. So far I don't have enough to make the trip
worthwhile. So, could you help me out??

Deal! Cried the losers, as the winners smoked and joked (a little
casino humor),

I am kind of close to the bone right now - are you making exceptions
for your poor local friends?

From: Annie Bissett, "Has anybody else mixed media in prints that are mostly
relief prints? Anybody mixed media with moku hanga? I'd be interested in
hearing your experiences."

Annie I have been mixing mediums for years. I've used stencils
(silkscreening) to lay colors onto my woodblock and then printed with a
press or with a baren. I print oily on top of acrylics. I print on top of
collages. I've also mixed intaglio with woodcut, as I am about to do with
my contribution for the year of the dog cards...I just used the designing of
my card for my final exam in an intaglio class and it was a success! Even
my grumpy old artist mother took one look and said "I'm impressed!" (so now
that I've told the whole list about it I better get those presses rolling
and get everyone's copy out to them...) (everyone thank Carol Wagoner for
allowing me to borrow her press [my old proofing press just wouldn't print
the etching evenly, it needs mechanical adjusting {mechanical means beyond
my abilities}])

Anyway...I think the most important thing here is that relief plays a MAJOR
roll in the composition of an exchange print. That being said...Making art
is always a grand experiment; if you don't allow room for experimentation
then the art lacks creativity and becomes stale. I think that's why Baren
doesn't discourage experimenting. Remember the Japanese are masters at
taking someone's craft and perfecting it via experimentation; so masterful
in fact that the rest of the world then turns around and attributes the art
to the Japanese.

First and Foremost--Have FUN with it!

(Claudia, your comment is inspired!) & I wanna do the S!

By the time we get around to this particular project, maybe I'll feel like an
old hand... ham... whatever...
