Welcome to May as we celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander (#AAPI) Heritage Month! Starting today and throughout the month, we will be introducing AAPI members in the print field.⁠

Mizin Shin is a visual artist, printmaker, educator, and also one of the co-founders of Mirabo Press, a printmaking studio based in Buffalo, NY. ⁠

Mirabo Press provides a wide range of printmaking facilities including intaglio, relief, monotype printing, etc. as well as educational and community programming. They welcome students to the studio to learn about this democratic and socially formative medium.⁠

More recently, Shin has been screen-printing #StopAsianHate signs and distributing them to educational institutions and other cultural organizations, including IPCNY! Feel free to stop by and pick one up, and most importantly, join us in continuing to raise awareness of the hate crimes against the AAPI community.⁠

Follow Shin to learn more about her works and the fundraising campaign she initiated for Stop Asian Hate.

We are wrapping up our #sustainable print shop campaign with Trefeglwys Print Studio, home of Baldwin's Ink Ground (BIG).

Created by Andrew Baldwin, BIG is not only a non-toxic alternative for traditional #etching ground contains arsenic, lead, mercury and many other toxic elements, but it is also a far more versatile ground. This alternative allows for a range of techniques: from soft and hard ground, photo etching, marbling, relief etching, to sandpaper aquatints, coffee lift, and more.⁠

Trefeglwys Print Studio provides courses covering all the techniques which can be achieved with BIG. They also provide videos and step-by-step tutorials on their website.

Did you enjoy our month of sustainable printshops? Join us in raising awareness of sustainable printmaking!

For today's #sustainable printshop spotlight, we are introducing Zygote Press, an artist workshop based in Cleveland, Ohio.⁠

Zygote Press is dedicated to maintaining a safe and sustainable printmaking studio and has fully committed to green policies since 2015. Some policies they have implemented including eliminating harsh cleaners and replacing them with alternatives such as vegetable oils and vinegar, replace paper towels with cloth rags for general clean-up, recycling and reusing paper, plastic, and aluminum, and using Copper Sulfate and Ferric Chloride etchants instead of acids. ⁠

They also provide educational resources on their website with step-by-step sustainable printmaking handouts for #screenprint, #etchants, and #presswork (image 3) as well as a variety of free and pay-what-you-can green printmaking demos.

⁠This mixed media print is by Dexter Davis. Dexter Davis creates powerful, rhythmic collages using hand printed woodblock, found material, as well as various paints and drawing tools. Unsettling at times, Davis presents the viewer with a mix of highly personal subject matter as well as broader, symbolic images, which may be a stand in for issues of social/racial injustice, poverty and urban decay.

“I am an African-American. But my work is a spiritual thing, It meets everybody. It is an energy. I have to ignite the energy force. I don’t do it from the standpoint of being angry. I do it from the standpoint of healing.”

What symbols do you find yourself using in your work?⁠

#ArtistDevelopmentProgram
Our last Studio Visit awardee is Sara Hess, who was paired with with New York-based artist Oscar Rene Cornejo.

Hess stated about her experience, "Oscar's engagement, preparation, and knowledge generated a fruitful conversation during our studio visit. We discussed my recent multimedia installation in the context of ‘painting’ and ‘printmaking’. Oscar referred me to numerous artists and passed along a handful of new, helpful readings.

We talked about engaged observation, channeling patron artists, re-anchoring and re-charging, composing a choreographed narrative, and locating a bridge into making from experiences. Although this visit was remote, I feel Oscar offered intimate and expansive feedback on my work. His words left me feeling energized and optimistic about untapped potential that he recognized within this fresh installation, providing both technical/material advice and conceptual jumping points as aspiration.

I thoroughly enjoyed and am grateful for our visit! This wonderful experience is beneficial to both my current practice and future career, as I continue to make work within my home studio and transition to beginning my MFA candidacy this fall."⁠

If you ever visited IPCNY pre-pandemic, Stephanie Trejo was very likely the first person you met when you entered our space. Stephanie, our Senior Manager of Administration and Finance joined IPCNY in 2011 and has done a trillion things including education, public programs, fundraising, administration... the list continues; you name it, she's probably done it through her tenure at IPCNY.

It is with excitement (and tears!!!) that we congratulate Stephanie on her next chapter at Arts Westchester! We asked what Stephanie will miss the most about IPCNY:

1) Dressing up for IPCNY's Benefit Dinners. Swipe to see photos of Stephanie in our annual benefits!

2) Bottino chocolate chip cookies—y'all, this is not a sponsored post (lol) but how could you not trust someone who's been around the neighborhood for 10 years!

3) The joy and energy of New Prints exhibition openings—shoutout to all the New Prints artists! Stephanie could not help but mentioning it over and over how fun they were, and how much she loved connecting with New Prints artists.

4) Printweek—we missed it 1000%. ⁠Stephanie loved buying prints from PRINTFEST.

5) Working with a small passionate team :) ⁠

"It has been a great honor and joy for me to have worked at IPCNY. I will always be grateful for the board of trustee's support throughout the years, for Anne Coffin's and Judy Hecker's career guidance and friendship, and for the print community's generosity. I hope to find my way back to the print world in the future but until then...thank you all for the memories."

Stephanie will be at IPCNY this week, so swing by and say goodbye to our dearest Steph ❤️

Mezzotint by Kirsten Flaherty

In this video, artist Kirsten Flaherty demonstrates the printing process from a #mezzotint plate to paper. She wets the paper, rolls ink onto the skull design, takes off excess ink with tarlatan cloth, lays the paper on top of the plate after blotting it, rolls the paper through the press, and then reveals the image. The result is a stunning design with fine detail and intense contrast.⁠

Flaherty works primarily in mezzotint, which first grew popular as a way to reproduce paintings in the 18th century but has since developed into a contemporary practice all its own.⁠

Are you also a fan of mezzotint, and what do you like about it?⁠ Don't forget to check out our YouTube playlist to see more printmaking demo videos from the community!⁠

#ArtistDevelopmentProgram⁠

Today, we check in with Kendyl Boyd, who is also one of the three Studio Visit Awardees. Boyd was paired with Leslie Diuguid printmaker and founder of Du Good Press.

Kendyl states, "My studio visit with Leslie Diuguid was invigorating. I am beyond appreciative of the support I have received from the International Print Center and the community of Black women printmakers that this exhibition and Artist Development Program experience have connected me to. ⁠

To be in conversation with an experienced printmaker as I lean into my undergraduate thesis (especially during these times) has helped to keep the gears going. I’m really looking forward to completing the current body of work that I have been working on and elevating from there."⁠

Boyd shared with us a sneak peek of her BFA thesis in progress, which she discussed with Duguid. We're excited to see how Boyd's thesis turns out!⁠

Happy Earth Day! We're celebrating this valuable holiday by introducing another sustainable printshop. Wharepuke Print Studio, founded and run by Mark Graver, is based in New Zealand and is a great resource for non-toxic printmaking. Mark wrote a book in 2011 called Non-Toxic Printmaking which detailed the method of Acrylic Resist Etching, an alternative to the harsher chemicals used in traditional etching. We have the recipe that Mark provides on his website in the images above.

The shop offers workshops and courses on non-toxic printing, as well as providing resources on their website. The shop uses water-based inks and refrains from using acids or solvents. Graver has also teamed up with Gerald Ferstman of the University of Kentucky to collaborate on research into acrylic hard grounds.

This research and effort is more important now than ever so we can do our best to keep this Earth beautiful, as it inspires us all.

Learn more about the shop here: http://nontoxic-printmaking.co.nz/
