Subject: [Baren 36215] Print exchange theme
Send Message: To this poster

Two or three days ago there was a posting from Maria Regina Pinto
Pereira's blog that showed the results of a 'Self Portrait' print
exchange; I've pasted the info below.

Looking at the many great prints on her site made me think that it
would be a wonderful theme for an upcoming exchange. It's a thought
provoking subject and, as a bonus, your model is always available.
Having gone through the self portrait exercise a few times I've found
it interesting (Good Lord! Did I really look like that?) to come
across one or another of them years after the fact.

Here's Maria's site:

Send Message: To this poster

Hello to all: I need printmaking techniques to be used at my workshop and workbook.
I have started to do a workbook to document the art workshop I teach at the Youth Shelter Casa Hogar el Refugio Monterrey México since 2005. The workshop is about Human development dynamics but I use the art also. You can see an article about the workshop at the magazine (Washington DC US): Art4Development.Net;; artishake@art4development.netI number 6.
Amanda Miller: I have included your gelatin monotype techniques. Could you please give me your website so that I can put it with the credits and your city and country?.
Best Regards and Thank you all, Guadalupe

The deadline for Exchange #37 and 37a is in only one (uno, ein, un, 1)

Please review the information page and don't

-Send in postage or money to cover, remember that USPS rates have gone
through the roof! Please check for details. A Flat Rate
Priority Mail Envelope seems to be the best deal for both domestic and world
mailing these days and this set of prints fit nicely into them. Envelopes
are free at your post office or have the USPS mail you some for free.

-Send in a mailing label if sending money and updated email and snail-mail
addresses if any changes.

-Go to and
send in your print information.

Thanks everyone for trying so hard!
