If you happen to be in West Texas, Lubbock in particular, drop by the Museum of Texas Tech University to see the ColorPrint USA 40th Anniversary exhibition. My Yummy #3 is part of the show. Dates: March 7 – May 9.

Here’s a bit more info:

“For four decades ColorPrint USA exhibitions gathered together exemplary cross-sections of fine art prints. Through the foresight and creative direction of Lynwood Kreneck, these sometimes annual, sometimes biennial, and sometimes triennial showcases of contemporary art brought to West Texas many of the most persuasive, famous, and compelling creative efforts of American and, at times, European, printmakers. The Museum of Texas Tech University now houses the ColorPrint USA collection. Through 65 works curated from this collection, this exhibition celebrates and refocuses attention on the singular importance of ColorPrint’s 40 year history.”

Here’s a color proof (hand-colored with markers and crayons) of an image that was blown up (from a linocut) and screen printed on to a large sheet of paper. It’s part of a series of large iconic heads being developed at Artists Image Resource in Pittsburgh.

Supergraphic Warehouse, a new alternative project space, will be presenting The Radical Repair Workshop on February 13th from 6pm - 8:30pm. Supergraphic Warehouse is located at unit 2220L in the Ample Storage facility at 2240 Dominion Street in Durham. The Radical Repair Workshop is a pop-up art experience housed inside a 1966 Frolic camper. The project encourages participants and viewers to consider their relationship to mending, sentimental objects, single-use items, and radical (potentially non-functional) modes of repair. Inside the camper you’ll find an art studio, a gallery of repaired items, and space for hands-on workshops. Items that have been donated by the public or scavenged by sculptor Julia Gartrell are taken in, assessed, and “repaired” in a manner aligning to their history. The “repairs” these items undergo may be technically non-functional or “productive” but they relate to a sculptural investigation of the object’s story, level of decay, and psychic/emotional energy. The approach to mending will be non-traditional—the item may not actually be “fixed,” but it will be transformed into a permanent art object, thus realigning our relationship to its “value.” The repaired items join the archive of the Radical Repair Workshop, along with their story, to be shared with future audiences along the journey of the project. Julia is interested in an anti-capitalist approach to the art object, and hopes that the Radical Repair Workshop encourages participants to accept “failure” as an actual form of success (as described by Judith Halberstam in The Queer Art of Failure). The repairs will take cues from Gartrell’s research into the creativity cultivated when resources are limited, such as in models of creative reuse and the escape of functional fixedness found in the face of scarcity. Modes of mending will vary depending on the item, but the Radical Repair Workshop is stocked with both traditional and non-traditional mending supplies ranging from string, tape, glue, and hardware to clay, dust, organic materials, and psychic energy. Results may be fleeting, ephemeral, or more permanent in nature, depending on the item being “repaired.”

Where to buy linoleum

The best place to buy linoleum is Dick Blick. Choose from a variety of pre-cut sizes or by the role. Battleship Gray is best.
