That is a commercial. I am constantly bombarded with them. They refer
to one's local area.
It never ends.......alas.....

Whenever you get one of these that has no real info about the site, you can figure it is spam...most bareners will tell you what you are going to go look at.
We are lucky as our major domo catches most of it but once in awhile they sneak in..just hit delete

Subject: [Baren 45521] Lynd Ward Film
Send Message: To this poster

_O Brother Man: The Art and LIfe of Lynd Ward_ , is a documentary film just released by my neighbor, Michael Maglaras. Yesterday he gave me a review copy and last night I was humbled and inspired seeing 94 minutes of over 150 images of Ward ("draw" spelled backwards) wood engravings and other illustrations. Visit his website and you can see quite a long trailer and get a taste of my latest woodcut idol. 217 Films - Independent filmmakers Michael Maglaras and Terri Templeton



ps I thought of our Maria and her 1000 Woodcut Quest while watching this film. In one year, Lynd Ward completed a project of 500 woodcuts in addition to another project he was doing at the same time. I've got to watch the film again and catch the details.

Subject: Yoshida sailing ship - proof batch done ...
Posted by: Dave Bull

Tsushima-san was here for a short time today, to continue her proofing work on the Yoshida design, and even though it was a pretty chaotic day here, she managed to get a few sheets 'completed'.

Completed is in quotes there, because we aren't ready to call this one 'ready' yet. This impression is still actually quite rough (look at the irregular gradation on the distant sky, for example), and both of us know that the tonal balances can be considerably improved.

But it's a place to start, for sure!

Subject: Home again.. and exhibition news!
Posted by: Sherrie York

Whew! What an amazing couple of weeks I've had! It's going to take a while to process the adventure, but there's no room for omphaloskepsisizing just now. It's show time!

With barely 24 hours of home time under my belt (and a huge pile of things still to be sorted on my desk) we headed out yesterday for the opening of the 12th Annual National Small Print Show in Creede, Colorado. High wind and a huge fire in New Mexico made for eerie driving... nothing like getting battered around in dust and smoke to make you wish you were back on a train in the Netherlands or something.

The show was, as usual, very well attended, and lots of pieces found new homes. Print-focused exhibitions are always a delight (to me, anyway). Where else is one able to see so many printmaking techniques displayed all at once?

Of course I was honored to have one of my linocuts awarded First Prize! Would you look at that cute blue ribbon? On the wall opposite my pieces were works by Dan Welden (of solar etching fame) and Stephen Quiller (watermedia painter and hometown Creede favorite son). Good company, eh?

The National Small Print Show runs through June 25 at the Creede Repertory Theatre, and then portions of the exhibition will head to the Center for the Arts in Evergreen, Colorado in July.

But that's not all! This week I'll host a reception for my solo exhibition "Familiars" at the Paquette Gallery here in Salida. The show was installed just before I left for Holland and continues through June 10. The reception is from 5-7pm this Friday, June 1. If you're in the neighborhood, come on by!
