|Brian Fisher and Debi Shandling Crawford demonstrate Collagraphy at VCA Koch Gallery|
Here is a YouTube link to the Collagraphy Demonstration by Brian Fisher, filmed last weekend, April 14, when Brian Fisher and Debi Shandling Crawford demonstrated Collagraphy plate and print making in the Vashon Center for the Arts, Koch Gallery to a receptive audience of art and print enthusiasts. Thanks VCA and Rick Skillman's video crew for filming the event!
Basically, a Collagraph plate is made by gluing relatively flat or thin elements to a substrate. In this demonstration paper was glued to a plexiglass plate to create shallow relief that was then inked as an intaglio and relief plate, then printed to paper on a small etching press.
This was just one of the QMP 25 special events. Next weekend, Saturday April 28 at 1:30 Quartermaster Press and Brian Fisher will host "The Collectors Conversation" at Vashon Center for the Arts. We’ll find out what draws people to collect artwork, the benefits of owning a work, how a piece might change as it becomes part of one’s daily life... and much more.
