Tribeca Ball and Open Studios

I recently did lithography printmaking demonstrations at two events hosted by my alma mater, the New York Academy of Art: Tribeca Ball and Open Studios. Tribeca Ball is an annual fundraiser to fund the school's scholarships and programs. Open Studios is a chance for anyone interested in the school to check out the fantastic work being created by students and alumni.

The Academy's printmaking facility enables students to work in Intaglio, Lithography, Relief, and Monotype printmaking. I fell in love with printmaking, particularly Lithography and Monotype, when I was studying there.

At the events last week, I met many patrons and artists. I demonstrated the process of printing a lithograph from the rolling up the plate, to working the press, and registering and pulling a print.
