The month of March really didn't seem to roar in like a lion and go out like a lamb. In fact, when thinking about my work at illegible ink (or even the weather), it seems like the opposite would be true. There are artist residencies to finish up, print deadlines, show application deadlines, marketing updates, etc. that are all popping up at the end of this month. With all the carnivorous deadlines, I've decided the best way to tackle them is to also balance them with fun.
Hmm... what would a Baltimore printmaker have fun doing this weekend? Well, it just so happens the Baltimore Museum of Art will be hosting the Baltimore Fair for Contemporary Prints & New Editions, Saturday, March 27 and Sunday, March 28, from 11am - 6pm. Tickets range between $12-$30 depending on membership and daily/weekend rates.
Discover limited-edition portfolios and single-image prints from 14 major contemporary art dealers, galleries, and presses from around the U.S. There will be a DIY Marketplace where attendees can learn about the do-it-yourself printmaking phenomenon directly from the artists! There will also be an afternoon panel discussion, New Directions for Printmakers. In this discussion, printmakers will address career options for recent printmaking graduates, which now range from the traditional track of becoming master printers for established print shops to self-publishing as a means of establishing oneself in this ever-evolving field.
Let the fun begin!
