For the past decade musician Letha Rodman Melchior has been making unbelievably complex and beautiful collages… and then sticking them under her bed. It’s time time to share them and the fine folks at Supergraphic in Durham NC have provided the space. We’re going to kick things off as part of third Friday festivities. Come down and celebrate Letha’s work as a musician, photographer, sculptor, seamstress, filmmaker, etc etc… let’s just call her an ARTIST!
Thanks to Michael Galinsky for organizing the show.
Festivities start at 6pm on Friday, December 20th.
The Durham Indie Comics Expo (DICE) will be taking place at Supergraphic on Saturday the 9th with an exhibit opening on the 8th. More info HERE. Lots of good local talent showing and talking about their work.
The dates for these workshops are October 12 and October 19.
Time: 10 am- 5 pm
All materials included.
Instructor Brian Gonzales will guide students through a basic yet productive introduction to silkscreen printmaking. Students will experience the screen printing process from image generation and screen/stencil creation to color ink mixing and printing. Students will gain plenty of squeegee practice, guidance and tips while printing, and their own experimental artworks from this one-day session. All materials, ink, and images will be provided. This class will qualify participants to use the Supergraphic facilities (studio certification) and provide an overview of more advanced screen techniques.
