Invitation: Print project in Bushwick this weekend

Drawing has become an increasingly important part of my art practice, and this weekend, four etching editions produced during a stimulating residency at Counterproof Press (located on the campus of the University of Connecticut at Storrs) will be on display in “Editions+Friends,” a collaborative project organized by Theodore:Art in Bushwick. The etchings – jumbled interpretations of geometric forms observed in everyday life – are beautifully printed by master printer and amazing artist Laurie Sloan, and have never been shown in New York. Four copies of the Good Morning Drawings, an artist book created in conjunction with a summer exhibition at SEASON in Seattle, will also be available. I’m very excited to show my work alongside editions by talented friends, including Michelle Vaughan, Oliver Wasow, Christopher Moss, Andrew Witkin, Alastair Duncan, and Richard Paul, and many others.

Organized by self-described print geek Stephanie Theodore, this fantastic weekend event will feature curated collections of independent art print and book publishers. Jane Simpson of Galerie Simpson, Swansea (UK), Russell Calabrese and Tom Jones of Editions Fawbush, New York, and Markie Speyer and Jacqueline Cantu of Ginger have all been invited to participate.

Ginger maps networks of creative people. In keeping with the logic of a network, all of the contributors are referred by an editor or contributor from a previous issue. As a feminist publication, we are committed to supporting the work of self-identified women and queer/trans/gender non-conforming individuals and strive to share the experiences and distinctive voices of those who identify as such. Our goal is to produce a zine with a diverse range of forms, content, and viewpoints.
