Printmaking Studio Leaves San Francisco
|At the Press on December 2, 2107|
It is part of the trend of artists leaving the city because they are priced out and want to be able to make their art and still afford to live.
|First visit on May, 2012|
Beginning in 2013, I have printed most every month producing a series of artist's proofs each time at the press. Fear of printmaking processes being too rigid, demanding and technical kept me from trying this medium for many years. But once I stepped into John Gruenwald's studio, I was enchanted and inspired to first try etching. Over time I grew to love dry point for that suits my way of working quickly. Highlights of the time with a collective of printmakers was two exhibitions that John and Catherine organized for us to show and sell our work.
Gruenwald Press also hosted many other exhibitions, Open Studios, classes and events. This vibrant space will be greatly missed by many.
