Rocky Mountain Printmaking Alliance First Symposium

I just want everyone to know how much fun I had.  At first I was a little apprehensive "coming back" to BSU, but after I saw everyone opening night and after our Geographical Divides Presentation, I felt at home.  I can't wait to see what everyone will be doing, what we all will be contributing and how this experience and future experiences challenge our perceptions of printmaking and collaborating.  WAY to GO RMPA! xoxooo to you ALL!  C.Nicol
We were all awake and excited to hear Justin Diggle, Andrew Polk and Kathryn Polk talk about their work on Wednesday morning, April 27, 2011

Anne Hoff and Laurei Blakeslee - They both went to grad school together at University of Arizona.  Laurie still had a Pig print that Anne had done in grad school.

It's great to see people adding to this blog so soon after the symposium! This was my first exposure to conventions of any kind and it was quite a learning experience. Everything that I learned I hope to repeat here at Oxbow Press and on my blog. Though my camera isn't quite as fancy I thought a few of my photos looked ok. Hope you guys enjoy and keep posting!
