Relief Printmaking

Relief Printmaking Session

March 11th 10am-4pm
Some relief printmaking experience preferred

Joseph Vorgity, an experienced woodcut artist, will guide this printmaking session.  This workshop serves to provide space to those who just need a press to print on and space to carve, and Joseph is on hand to help anyone in need of guidance or looking to extend their skill set. 

Please come prepared with your own wood block or linoleum, feel free to email for a list of suppliers.  We will have ink, carving tools, and a selection of printmaking papers.

This is a printmaking process that dates back centuries, the same technology that brought imagery and literature to the world, but is still used today by a wide variety of contemporary artists.

Schedule:
March 11th 10am-4pm

Any cancellations will be reimbursed minus a $10 nonrefundable deposit up to 7 days prior to the workshop start date.

About the artist:
Joseph Vorgity is a contemporary realist watercolorist and printmaker. His still life, landscape, and figurative subject matter are recognized by strong flat areas of color with sharp lines to delineate shapes. Some themes are narrative, others have a surreal quality while many are created primarily for their beauty and visual impact.  Some of the figurative pieces are modeled after traditional religious pictures of saints and deities while others are related to figures in Japanese woodblock prints of the early 20th century. His strongest influences come from the American Precisionist Movement, the Arts and Craft Movement, and from Japonisme.

Vorgity maintains a studio in Los Angeles and is a member of the Los Angeles Printmaking Society. Joseph is also the proprietor of Hyacinth Press which produces woodblock printed greeting cards.
