Blue Ridge Arts Center is pleased to announce our upcoming Afternoon with an Artist luncheon will feature printmaker & ceramic artist, Wendy Converse. Wendy has been creating her one-of-a-king prints and ceramic sculptures for nearly 20 years. Taking inspiration from the natural environment and quirky architectural details, her works create a fantasy world all their own. Don’t miss your chance to view the unique monoprints and ceramic sculptures on display and hear directly from the artist about her inspiration and creative process when it comes to printmaking.
So, what exactly is a monoprint? Join Wendy as she walks us through one sliver of the printmaking world. She’ll share tools and techniques used in monoprinting and explain how these one-of-a-kind prints are made, including a gelatin plate printmaking demonstration. Monoprints are a great crossover artform which can be applied to many other medium, so you won't want to miss this chance to expand your creative repertoire.
Space is limited. Reserve your space online or by phone. $25 includes lunch and demonstration ($20 for members). Wendy’s prints and clay sculptures will be on display at Blue Ridge Arts Center from March 16 - April 26, 2018 and can be viewed during gallery hours: Wednesday - Friday (1-4pm) and Saturdays (10am-1pm).
