Stickley Museum Offers Hands-On Printmaking Workshop

roving pressOn Saturday, March 13, from 5-7 p.m., the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms will present a fascinating demonstration by the Roving Press, an outreach program of the Printmaking Council of New Jersey.   Professional printmaker, Greta Anderson, will offer an introductory demonstration to monotype printmaking.  Monotype printmaking is a process where inks are applied to a smooth surface plate using rollers, paintbrushes, or rags.  Paper is then laid over the plate and run through an etching press or pressed by hand, creating an exciting one-of-a-kind print.   All participants will be invited to try their hand and pull a print of their own to take home.

The Printmaking Council of New Jersey (PCNJ) is a non-profit fine arts center specializing in print and paper media.  For the past 35 years, the Council has provided activities, events and classes that nurture an appreciation for the fine art of printmaking.

Printmaker Greta Anderson is an accomplished painter and printmaker and teaches specialized programs throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York. She has exhibited widely nationally and internationally and her works can be seen, amongst others, in the exhibitions of Johnson & Johnson Corp., Pfizer Corp., the Newark Public Library and the Montclair Art Museum. She received her BFA degree from Rutgers’ Mason Gross School of the Arts and her MFA degree from the University of Pennsylvania.

The event is in honor of the members of the Craftsman Guild, whose annual support has a significant impact on the operations of the Stickley Museum.   Light refreshments will be served.  Guests will also have the opportunity to view or purchase original signed and numbered prints commissioned by the Museum and created by Laura Wilder, Dorothy Markert, and Yoshiko Yamamoto.
