BIG INK at Maryland Hall

If you're interested in creating a large woodcut for this event please visit http://www.bigink.org/apply. The deadline to apply is May 29th, 2017.

BIG INK is partnering with Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts for an event that fosters appreciation for the art of woodcut printmaking. On August 4th & 5th, 2017 BIG INK will bring a 48” x 96” mobile printmaking press to Maryland Hall. BIG INK volunteers will help pre selected participating artists print woodcuts en plein air. The finished prints will be hung in a highly visible area, creating a viewing gallery for all to enjoy.

The participating artists, selected by Lyell Castonguay, director of BIG INK, will bring giant carved wood blocks measuring at least 24" x 36" in size. Visitors will witness woodcuts being printed in an open forum. Handouts will explain the process, its history, and context in contemporary art. In addition, the artists who created the work will be in attendance to network and answer questions. The prints created at BIG INK events are exhibited in university galleries, art centers, and museums, such as a recent show in Seoul, Korea.
