Thanks for your report on the Grimsby, Ontario Wayzgoose on Saturday, Gayle!
It was great that you could make the trip, I dearly wanted to go but it's
more like 6 - 7 hours from here in eastern Ontario. It is a truly inspiring
group of exhibitors and others that get together. I did order the anthology
which is printed every year for the Wayzgoose ( including a few signature
pages printed by each of the exhibitors and hand bound for the event.) It
is an awesome book, with a real diversity of approaches to printing.
George Walker is a great guy, a good artist and a mentor of printmaking to
And what is the Hamilton area, without the escarpment :-) !!

Bon voyage!

Subject: The Print - Michigan Competition
Posted by: Linda

Friday, April 27, my friend and fellow exhibitor Ruth Egnater and I attended the opening reception of The Print at Ann Arbor Art Center.  This was Ruth's first competition and I was very excited to be there with her.  Although I have been accepted several times this was the best one I have seen and am so proud to be a part of.

"The Print invites Michigan artists to showcase experimental print techniques encompassing those of contemporary standards as well as those of time honored tradition."  The past few years it seemed that this was interpreted as "digital" with hardly a hand made print in sight.  It has been discouraging, not only in their content but in what it portrayed as printmaking to the general public.  In my opinion. 

This year?s juror. Norm Stewart chose over 60 prints - everything from a potato print, screen prints, intaglio, colograph, and - YEAH! woodblock prints!  Mr. Stewart is an Artist, Masterprinter and owner of the printing and publishing company of fine art prints, Stewart & Stewart. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Arts degrees from the University of Michigan. He also earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from Cranbrook Academy of Art where he worked with Tamarind masterprinter, Irwin Hollander.
Please enjoy these photo's.  I apologize for not having the names of the artists at the time of posting but will make every effort to add them as soon as possible.

Norm Stewart, Juror
