This past Sunday, the Rockaway Artists Alliance InkSplash 2016 exhibition ‘Printmaking in a Changing World’ came to a close. I was fortunate to attend the opening reception, see the work in person and meet most of the artists who exhibited. And. I. Was. Impressed!!…by both the caliber of the work and the beautiful arts community at RAA.
And not only was I impressed…I was INSPIRED! InkSplash 2016 featured a wide variety of original printed works including intaglio, mono print, relief, solar-plate etching, aqua tints, photo transfers and experimental techniques celebrating the fine art of printmaking in a changing world. My work as a photo based artist falls into the latter of the above mentioned processes.
(In all the photo galleries, I have linked the artist’s website with their image if they have one…learn more about that artist and their work by simply clicking on an image)
The exhibition also got some amazing press and I was fortunate enough to be prominently featured in a lot of it as well! Click on the clicks below to read more.

THANK YOU again to the Rockaway Artists Alliance and especially to Victoria Barber who invited me to exhibit in this show. I was honored to hang alongside such quality work that inspired me to continue seeking new ways to create. I met a lot of wonderful individuals, who were happy to share their stories and process with me! And lastly, I received great feed back on my work from a new audience…and even sold a piece!!
