Printmaking demonstrations planned by art associationFairfield Art Association also will have a Valentine workshop for children Friday.
The Fairfield Art Association will be hosting two interactive presentations on printmaking Friday during the Fairfield 1st Fridays Art Walk. The first presentation will be from 7-7:55 p.m., followed by a second presentation at 8-8:55 p.m.
The presentations will be facilitated by Kella J. Tschopp, John Stimson, both artists and printmakers, and Douglass A. White.
The current exhibit in the Main Gallery at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center, features the works of German artist Rudolph Bernard Neugebauer, which displays etching, engraving, relief and planograph. The collection is presented by family member Douglass A. and Grace White, who will give an artist biography including Neugebauer’s personal to professional art development. This presentation will take place in the Main Gallery.
In the Fairfield Art Association Studio, demonstrations will be given in hand-pulled print methods intaglio, lin-o-scribe, letter press presses and hand rubbed.
The Fairfield Art Association has aspired to offer printmaking in its studio, where a printing press is available. The education committee will be setting dates for classes soon, so any interested persons may want to attend the presentation Friday to understand the variety of printmaking methods.
Anyone interested in attending a future class, can contact Tschopp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
