Cows, cows, and more cows .... Matsumura-san's annual roundup of the
new year cards he received in January is now online (thanks to
Sadako-san's scanning and page layout work).

Follow the link to the New Year Card Gallery ...

There are eight groups, with many sub-pages in each group; I guess
around 350~400 in all, although I didn't count 'em! Each small one is
clickable for a larger image.

If you enjoy this, then let them know at [].
Matsumura-san can handle relatively easy English email ...

Subject: Hung Up!
Posted by: Annie B

Yesterday afternoon, after a foot of snow had fallen and the flurries kept on coming, Lynn and I loaded up the Honda with 25 framed prints and various other sundries and drove ourselves the 1/2 mile to Hosmer Gallery. We were full of the kind of optimism that only rank beginners possess: "It'll probably take us 2 or 3 hours." Four and a half hours later, with some great tips from our gallery mates, we were hung. Here are a few photos from the adventure.

The Forbes Library is a beautiful old building. The gallery is in a large space on the second floor and usually two artists share the gallery, left and right. I'm sharing the space with a duo, photographer Ellen Augarten (right) and UCC minister Andrea Ayvazian who have created a book in which the 150 Psalms of David have been rewritten by a cross section of 'ordinary' people from our community with an accompanying photograph of each.

I got to play museum curator and create a display case showing how to make a woodblock print. I think that people appreciate the prints a lot more if they can see how they're made.

Subject: OPEN HOUSE - MARCH 29th
Posted by: Dean Clark

I have been announcing this in numerous ways, but lo and behold not here. What was I thinking?

In conjunction with the Southern Graphics Council conference in Chicago (March 25-29, 2009), Graphic Chemical & Ink is planning on hosting an Open House at World Headquarters on March 29th from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

For those of you not familiar with our facilities, World Headquarters are located at 728 North Yale Avenue, Villa Park, IL 60181. Lest you get the wrong idea, we aren't exactly a 100,000 square foot building. We don't have multiple floors. In fact we could lie our way to about 11,000 square feet - roughly the size of the 8 Track Tape Department at Best Buy.

Not to cast aspersions on software manufacturers, but some commonly used software isn't too clear about our location. Yale avenue is 1 1/2 blocks long where we are located. You can only get to our building by turning off of eastbound North Avenue (Illinois Route 64), or by turning off of Ardmore Avenue onto Shiller , which dead ends at Yale. Should you have problems with directions, call us at 630-832-6004, and someone will talk you in.

Villa Park is actually pretty close to O'Hare Airport for those of you headed out that way. Public . . .
