International Print Exchange 2019 “Displacement”, Australia

Prints go out to THE MAKERS STUDIO in October

2 plate Limited Edition of 11 Prints, woodcut and drypoint

“New Moon Reflection”

At The Makers Studio in Australia they are going to do a print exchange with the title “Displacement”. I participate with the image called “New Moon Reflection” and looking forward to what I will get in return. 9 prints will be send back to each participant, and also one will be in a show and one will stay for archival purposes.

$5.00 of the application fee will go to a charity in Australia (to be determined).

I chose this image, because for me this print perfectly represents the theme “Displacement”, and for various reasons.
First of all it is obviously printed with two plates, one wood cut, one is a copper plate drypoint. They are printed offset on purpose.
I found the copperplate as a scrap with welding residue on it, what printed as the shrubs and bushes.
The tree roots are displaced too. They grow through the brick wall, but still hold the tree in its place.
Finally the “Black” or New Moon, usually not seen for our naked eye, is bright in the sky and reflecting on the plants – and therefore black, instead of the pale moonlight.

Displacement for this print needs also following statement: one images was already in the mini print show ADOGI in Spain, but wasn’t sold an sent back to me.
And usually I do editioning with 10, 15 or 29 prints. This was done in 2013, when I printed unintentionally 11 images, now the perfect amount of prints for the exchange.

“About Faces” Joint Show by Beate Scheller and Susan Gallacher-Turner

The upcoming Show at Art on Broadway in Beaverton, Oregon

Artist Reception Friday July 12, 2019 from 5pm-7pm

During July and August, AOBG member artists Susan Gallacher-Turner and Beate Scheller are sharing works exploring faces in all their different facets.

Print by Beate Scheller in the “About Faces” Joint Show.

Beate says: In my new prints I want to express moments, and want to challenge viewers, to see if they can find the appearance of a face.

I try to sketch often, sometimes it is on a few days in a row, and sometimes it doesn’t happen for weeks. But for sure my first sketch isn’t always the last image I see in it.

Quite perceptible a pair of eyes or a figure becomes multiple meanings for me, when going back into my sketches. First it is only the image I drew. After a couple of times, when I got back into some sketch, a face or eyes that had been hiding suddenly appear and look at me.

With these prints I want to challenge the viewer to look at something or even someone – with eyes, with a face, and don’t look away. Even looking twice to see the facial expression they have, connect with it, good or bad. Because faces and eyes are alive and always worth looking at, they are the connection to our surroundings and to our world, and soul.

Working on lithography stones most of the time, the image appears like a drawing, keeping lines and shading like pencil strokes. As a result the viewer can also look again to see the craftsmanship of stone lithography. I really enjoy printing small editions with a stone, because of its smooth face and the soft appearance of an image, like a face with all its surfaces.About

Susan says: From our very awakening at birth, life is all about faces. Seeing, knowing, loving begins with the faces of those around us. As an artist, I see faces everywhere. Whether I’m in line at the grocery store, watching clouds in the ski, or touching the bark of trees in the woods, faces draw my attention. Happy or sad. Young or old. Spirited or wise. I find meaning and messages and connections and stories in each one.

In this group of work, I started with my love of nature. My simple leaf form became a cloak from a group of fairy witches. Tree bak inspired a pair of nature goddesses dressed n a combination of natural elements, Celtic symbols, and feminine details. Shapeshifters appear again in my work in new forms.

No matter their form, they all tell a story we have all understood from our first look at the world around us. It’s all about faces.

Please come by the gallery for a panel discussion with five of our artists on the subject of this month’s show, “Change.” Elizabeth Bamberger, Bert Cohen, Michael Kelly, Donna Sanson, and Beate Scheller will make up the panel and will share what sparked their imagination and drove them to create the piece of artwork they submitted.

Do they welcome change or dread it, do they choose change or does change choose them? How do life changes affect their work, their goals, their direction? Bring you questions and become a part of the discussion!

Exhibition of Printmakers from Portland and around the Globe

The upcoming exhibitions at 12×16 Gallery in Sellwood is about a Solo- and a Group Show of Printmaker from Portland and around the Globe.

I hope, visitors will enjoy images printed with etching, stone-lithography, woodcut/lino-cut, moku hanga, and monotypes from over 10 Artists of Printmaking.

“Facial Expression included”

In my new prints I want to express moments, and want to challenge the viewers, if they can find the appearance of a face, but also look at something or even someone – with eyes, with a face, and don’t look away. Even looking twice to see the facial expression the image communicates, and connect with it, good or bad. Because faces and eyes are alive and always worth to look at, being the connection to our surroundings and to our world, and soul.

To work on lithography stones most of the time the image appears like a drawing, keeping lines and shading like pencil strokes. In that case the viewer can also look again to see the craftsmanship of stone lithography.

“Beate and her Friends in Printmaking”

I also curated the adjacent group show of printmakers from around the globe I got to know of, and befriend with for several years. The artists, I invited are printmaker, who helped me to treasure prints, and the printmaking process of stone-Lithography, etchings, and woodcut.

The group show of printmaker friends is with an open theme; I invited those artists and wanted to show with, because I very appreciate their work I was influenced by one way or another.

Exhibit will include works of Ellen Emerson, Eleanor H. Erskine, Susan Hurrell-Fields (NZ), Katherine McDowell, Mary Pacios, Nicole Rawlins, Richard Steiner (Japan), Graham Stephens (Chicago, IL.) and more
