Pouring on Jamestown 2016, intaglio and screen print, 36 x 60 inches, edition of 8
This exhibition debuts the new edition, Pouring on Jamestown, which was partially funded by a Visual Arts Sea Grant from the University of Rhode Island. The panoramic view of the eastern side of Conanicut Island was etched using a single copper plate that spans five feet wide and three feet tall. This etching layer was printed on the monumental printing press at the AS220 Community Printshop in Providence. With a ten-foot press bed, it is one of the largest presses of its kind in the United States.
