Viscosity Printing

Saturday, October 21, 2017

Location: Atlanta Printmakers Studio, 

675 Metropolitan Pkwy SW #6026, Atlanta, GA 30310 

Time: 4:30-7:30pm

Who doesn't love a 2 for 1 deal! Viscosity printing gives you more bang for your time and effort. The process allows you to print multiple colors in a single pass.  

Viscosity is the state of being thick, sticky, and semi-fluid in consistency, due to internal friction. In this workshop you learn to adjust the viscosity of the inks to allow you to roll ink layers one on top of another with out disturbing in the earlier layers of ink.

Be forewarned that viscosity printing sometimes looks and feels like magic!

Looking for the perfect handmade gift? In this course students will explore bookbinding on the miniature scale. Students will be guided thru the process of binding a functional tiny book necklace that is both fashionable and functional using Coptic stitching. The instructor will demonstrate and guide students thru the process of paper folding/cutting, cover preparation and assembling the book using the Coptic stitch technique, which is an exposed braid-like binding along the spine of the book. The class will also include instruction on proper tool handling and safety. Students of all levels are welcome.


2017 VISITING ARTISTS

Reductive Relief Printing with Katrina Andry

March 21, 2017

Katrina Andry received an MFA in Printmaking from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA in 2010. She currently works and lives in New Orleans where she maintains a studio in her home.

Katrina’s work explores the negative effects stereotypes have on people of color. Where stereotypes are typically used to help us normalize our surroundings by categorizing groups of people, the byproduct of stereotypes is that they also create arbitrary differences between people. Stereotyping establishes an arbitrary set of societal norms/rules that benefit the majority while it disenfranchises other groups of people. Katrina’s work challenges stereotypes placed upon people of color (the Other), that once had scientific research qualifying them, and how these ideas or stereotypes have become a part of how we see each other, whether consciously or unconsciously. In her practice, Katrina often creates large scale (4’ or greater), color reduction wood cuts portraying white men in black face, or more recently, watermelon face acting out a stereotype that is most often placed upon people of color. Katrina specifically uses white men as they are typically seen as figures of authority, and are historically the perpetuators of stereotypes against people of color (though people of color often enforce these same stereotypes in their own communities, but it’s not as pervasive, as people of color are more self-aware of these actions most often). Katrina also uses non-people-of-color in her work so the prints aren’t misperceived as being an expression of black culture. The fact that they are sometimes seen as that, speaks to the truth of how well engrained stereotypes against people of color are in our culture.

Katrina was listed in the January-February 2012 issue of Art in Print as one of the top 50 printmakers. Katrina is an active member of the Staple Goods Collective in the St. Roch neighborhood of New Orleans. She has also been awarded residencies from the Joan Mitchell Center of New Orleans, Anchor Graphics in Chicago, and Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California.
