Printmaking at Library

 Click image to enlarge!
Me and two of my work sewn together with others as a large sheet. 
The arrows pointing to my two prints. 
The woman in charge, Synnöve, is the one I contact when I want to have an exhitition in the Library.  She had a lot of work during this time. Scool classes was invited to create too. 
The exhitition called BYGGET started April 2d and ends the coming saturday. The entire exhibition has been a Happening. With many performances. I have even been dancing Tango in there. This was the funniest exibition I have ever seen. Always changing apperance. There are many more printed sheets hanging in the "jack-straws" as we call these pins. A huge one. There are also straws on the balcony. This was a real adventure and I am so happy to be able to be a small part of it!
😍😎


Synnöve and I am printing my last work. Volcano uppdated.!


This was the last of the exhibition on the Arthall in the Library. 

Three times there have been an Open Workshop in the exhitition. 
We were allowed to create as much as we wanted with the material available. The Volcano and the Yin-Yang was the last I created. They have dried so I have taken them home.

I will show you more of the pieces I created next week. 

Until then, I relaxed with some digital artwork. Digitals don´t have to dry. 😁

I hope this works as a Journal. It is only the size of A4 paper but I used so many different techniques I can´t even start to explain it.

Printing at the Library part 1

 Click image to enlarge!

There are a different exhibition on our Library. It goes on for six weeks and changes constantly. And lots of different activities going on in the room. Everything from reading books to music and even Qigong. Everyone can attend and it is freee. I have never seen that much people in the Art gallery or the Library before. So much fun going on. 

I have attended twice on the Open workshops and there will be one more before it closes. 

Motion
My first print 


Fuji volcano


Deer silhouette used for printing


Deer silhouette, the print on cloth



The artist, Tova, in charge for the event, coloring my Deer before printing it
We can take the "original" home when it has dried, but the printed cloth will be sewn together to large cloth pieces and displayed in the end of the exhibition. 



Path into the woods. 

Painted on paper A4. Tested some new ways of doing things. I made a mistake on the path but in the end I, kind of, like it. The paper was wavy due to the wet color but it makes it more alive, so I don´t mind.

TAD:s theme this week was Leaves and branches. But as it turned out she changed her mind. As PPF ended Rain now made the promts optional.
