The Flux conference
I received a faculty grant in Spring 2016 to cover travel costs and registration for the Southern Graphics International Printmaking conference entitled Flux: The Edge of Yesterday and Tomorrow, hosted by the Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) and Portland [State] University in Oregon.
I was invited to exhibit my print “Desert Mourning: Glitch” in the Print Exchange Portfolio exhibition, and received a portfolio of prints by international artists for use as teaching materials in my classes. This is not some staid lecture hall conference; the halls of the meeting rooms and event venues are taken over by action, discussion, exhibition, materials fairs, theory and demonstrations of printmaking. This year’s conference had the largest display of printmakers showcasing and selling their work on open portfolio days solidifying this area as a growing methodology and significant part of contemporary practice once again. I distributed and promoted the new Otis Printmaking minor with Otis catalogs and information during the publisher fair.
