Mar 24, 2010 4:04 am
The Columbia County Historical Society (CCHS) is hosting a two-day intensive printmaking workshop with artist Kate McGloughlin, offered in partnership with the Woodstock School of Art, in honor of the Society’s 2010 exhibit Inked Over: Our Printed World. Learn about relief and intaglio prints by trying your hand at making a block print and an etching. The workshop will be held at the Woodstock School of Art on May 15 and 16, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Just for CCHS members, the materials fee has been waived and regular registration fees discounted. No experience necessary, beginners welcome! Ms. McGloughlin will lead a free demonstration for the general public on May 7 at 7 p.m., at the James Vanderpoel House, 16 Broad St., Kinderhook. This demonstration is open to everyone, but people considering taking the two-day workshop are encouraged to attend. To register, call CCHS at 518-758-9265. Registration for CCHS members is open March 10th-31st ($215 +$15 matriculation fee). Registration for non-members is open April 1st- May 12th ($240 + $15 matriculation fee and $10 for materials). The exhibit Inked Over: Our Printed World opens Saturday, April 24 at the Columbia County Historical Society Museum & Library. The exhibit explores how the ability to print at a reasonable cost on many different surfaces made our world a very colorful place and transformed how we communicated and how we presented ourselves to the world. This free demonstration and special two-day course are opportunities to experience firsthand the technology behind this transformation of our world. The Columbia County Historical Society is a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the history and culture of Columbia County.
