BIG INK has partnered with Pickwick Independent Press, located at 536 Congress St in Portland, ME, for two one-day large woodcut printing sessions Friday and Saturday June 5th – 6th, 2015. We will be utilizing Pickwick’s massive 48” x 96” etching press. Artists are invited to submit a proposal to create a woodcut, at least 24” x 36” in dimension, online at lyellcastonguay.com/big-ink/apply. (Deadline: Mar. 23rd) If accepted, artists have two months to carve their image into a piece of plywood. Lyell Castonguay, director of BIG INK, remains in contact with the artists to provide guidance and technical support when needed. Twelve artists will be chosen and six will print each day. Artists may also work collaboratively, simply list both of names on the application. Previous printmaking experience is helpful but not required.
