In-Store Akua Demonstration
March 4, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Artists in attendance will receive an introduction to Akua Inks and accessories by way of an engaging and interactive demonstration on monotype printmaking conducted by renowned printmaker, Catherine Kernan. Attendees will have the opportunity to see first-hand how the unique working properties of these incredible inks lend themselves to a wide range of printmaking and other techniques/media.
About the Artist, Catherine Kernan: Catherine Kernan is a printmaker and painter. She is also the co-founder and partner of Mixit Print Studio, a professional open rental printmaking studio in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts. “Working at the interface between printmaking and painting, I use large scale woodblocks in unorthodox ways as a transfer tool to build images layer by layer in a painterly process of controlled accident. No longer a purist, I exploit any available tool or means to transfer color and form to surface. Interruption and interference with the “perfect transfer” are integral to the process.”
