PrintZero Studios organizes regular “print exchanges” where artists engaged in traditional print arts such as intaglio, relief printing, silkscreen and lithrography create a limited editions of prints. Each artist submits their eddition of 15 identical prints and then receives 13 different prints back from other participating artists. Two prints are kept by PrintZero Studios for their archives and traveling exhibitions in order to share the breadth and depth of artistic endeavors in the fine art printing medium. The exhibits serve to promote the appreciation and understanding of the medium and a dialogue of artistic exchange.

Drawing of the Aphrodite of Morgantina, a limestone and marble sculpture presumed to have been looted from a site in Morgantina, Sicily

Aphrodite of Morgantina
Graphite on paper
30 x 22 inches

The Aphrodite of Morgantina is a larger than life size marble and limestone sculpture which is believed to have been looted from an excavation site in Morgantina, Sicily. The sculpture was purchased by the J. Paul Getty museum from a London art dealer who had bought it from a Swiss family. The swiss family had purportedly been in posession of the sculpture since 1939, which is the same year that the Italian governmen, in an effort to preserve the cultural heritage of the region, passed a law preventing the removal of antiquities from the country.

The J. Paul Getty museum has since reached an agreement with The Italian government to return the sculpture and several other antiquities. It will remain on display at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles until 2010.

More info at the website for the Illicit Antiquities Research Centre. More info about the sculpture at the Getty Museum.

Here is the current wood block that I have been working on. It is carved and inked with black relief ink ready to be printed. The wood is a white pine. I like the slightly sculptural quality of the wood block.

I carved another block to render a background color and have produced a few color proofs. I’m not totally satisfied yet, but I’m making progress.

I intend to utilize this image for the Print Zero Studios Print Exchange that is coming up in July 2010. Artists will submit editions of 15 prints, then we shuffle them all up and each contributing artists receive 13 different prints from the other participating artists in return. Print Zero Studios retains 2 of the prints for their collection and usually organizes a traveling exhibit of the work.

In my last post I talked a bit about Alyson Stanfield and her business ArtBizCoach.com. I have found artbizcoach.com a helpful resource for information on promoting and marketing my work and for developing the written document that most artists dread writing more than any: The Artist Statement. I also refer to Ms. Stanfield’s Visual Artist Kit for information on properly formating my resume, bio, slidelists and other similar documents.

Another very valuable resource I would like to mention is Mr. Clint Watson’s Fine Art Views. Fine Art Views is a free electronic newsletter published almost every day that provides “Straight Talk about Art, Marketing, Inspiration, and Fine Living For Artists, Collectors and Galleries.” I find Mr. Watson’s newsletters to be often informing and sometimes downright revolutionary. They offer practical ideas that if you put into place will garner results, and in the process will raise your general marketing and promotion IQ. I would highly recommend any artist wishing to seriously market and promote their work to subscribe to the newsletter. It’s worth much more than the price: FREE! Check it out at www.fineartviews.com.
