We had visitors!

The SCAD News and Events page has posted an article about our print shop’s collaboration with Kiki Smith, Valerie Hammond, and Crista Cloutier. The three spent a whirlwind long-weekend making drawings and working with photographs that would become multiple series of prints and artists’ books. Our visitors, grad and undergrad student assistants, and the printmaking department chair (Robert Brown) worked incredibly hard.

Now that the visiting time is over, that does not mean that all of the work has finished. Not at all. For the latter half of the summer, Robert and the student assistants have been working on proofing all of the prints. Eventually they will be “bon à tiré” (ready to pull), which means that a proof will be exactly how Kiki or Valerie want the entire edition to look. Then Robert and the assistants will actually produce the edition of each print or artists’ book, printing or assembling them all by hand.
