Frank Curran Printmaking Demo

Day 1 of North Adams Open Studios was great!  Highlight was Frank Curran's demo of his woodblock carving process.  Love the smell of fresh wood shavings!

Frank is using an antique copying press, originally intended to make single copies of manuscripts & letters, as a portable press for wood block printing

Demos & performance this weekend!

First off, Saturday, October 15 and Sunday October 16 is North Adams Open Studios!  studio21south will be open throughout, 10-6 on Sat., and 10-4 on Sun.  This is also the last weekend of  "Going Coastal" and our last official weekend of the season!

We've also got two great artist demos this weekend, featuring "Going Coastal" and gallery artists Frank Curran and Julia Morgan-Leamon

Frank Curran, "Beginning"
On Saturday from 1-3, the irrepressible Frank will demonstrate woodblock cutting for making prints on paper. He will have on hand a small hand press and ink rollers, as well as examples of other types of blocks used in relief printing such as wood engraving and metal type. (What's wood engraving, and why is it not plain old wood block printing, you ask? Come see!)  

..and your presence + participation are required for Julia's workshop on Sunday from 1-3:30. "Flee, Fly, Fall!" is an experimental painting performance. Participants will assist in making a painting about motion (specifically the 'moment before the fall') by posing either in the air OR enacting the position of being in the air, and/or being traced directly onto the paper. Julia will trace, draw, photograph, and paint; she will capture the motion by overlaying and overlapping these gestures on a large painting surface.

Julia Morgan-Leamon, "Tipping Point"

Paul Rapp talk @studio21south

Had a great time last night hearing from Paul Rapp, an intellectual property attorney specializing in the arts.  (that's our "Oh, Crap!" show in the background, & Eric Rudd introducing Paul...)

For stellar copyright advice, check out Paul's website:   and better yet, Paul's in the '80s new-wave band Blotto!  (the one of us who was raised on MTV got all aflutter about this)

Thanks to our friends at the Porches!

If you haven't yet, do check out the Porches, a truly fantastic boutique hotel.  In the spirit of North Adams, the Porches is the result of the adaptive reuse of a row of dilapidated Victorian-era mill houses.  Not entirely unlike the historic mill loft which is now home to our fine art gallery! 

Thanks to the Porches for their recent shout-out to Inside/Out on their blog!
