Press Here: a Printmakers Showcase is a gorgeous exhibit with original artwork by 10 printmakers. We have had so many folks asking about the process, after seeing the monoprint, etchings, woodcuts and collagraphs in person, that we decided to have a demonstration in the art studio at the back of the exhibit space.
So … if you are in Helena on Saturday morning, September 29, we have a fun, educational and magical printmaking demo for you!
Stop by Maureen Shaughnessy‘s art studio at 434 North Last Chance Gulch in Helena (back of gallery) to learn something about her drypoint and collagraph printmaking process.
Maureen will be working on a new drypoint etching plate and printing some monoprint/collagraphs on her press. It’s always fascinating to see this magical process as it’s happening. Ask questions. Observe. Drop in for as short or long a time as you wish. It’s all free.
After you watch the demo, head out to our exhibit space to compare what you see in the studio to the diverse prints on the walls by 10 different artists. Our current show, Press Here: a Printmakers Showcase is on view until October 13.
