Maury Announced as PEARS Visiting Printmaker
March 13, 2012
NDSU Visual Arts and Pears Education and Research Studio (PEARS) Visiting Artist Program is pleased to present the 12th annual summer printmaking workshop with printmaker Nichole Maury, Associate Professor of Art at Western Michigan University. During this two-week opportunity, June 11-22, 2012, participants will attend printmaking workshops and prepare an exchange portfolio using presented methods and theory.
Maury will present The Non-Repeatable Print introducing students to monotype and monoprint screenprinting techniques with a focus on content and experimentation. Students will learn a wide variety of non- or semi-repeatable mark making techniques using both traditional and non-traditional stenciling processes. Attention will be given to the development of serial imagery, ghost imagery and the successful use of color (in combination with transparency and texture). The goal of this workshop is to develop individual content and equip students with tools needed to work independently. Setting up a personal water-based screenprinting studio will be addressed.
Maury’s prints have been included in several international and national venues including The International Print Center New York, The Scuola di Grafica, Venice, Italy, The Chicago Cultural Center, and The Urban Institute of Contemporary Art, Grand Rapids, MI. She has been awarded residencies at The Frans Masereel Centrum, Belgium, The Kala Art Institute of Art, Berkeley, CA, Women’s Studio Workshop, NY, and Jentel, WY and her prints have been included in several publications such as New American Paintings (Vol. 89), and Printmakers Today (Schiffer Publishing 2010).
