Welcome to the launch of our new website for the Mixit Print Studios. We are delighted with the new design and thank our friend and web designer extraordinaire, Dianne Henning, for her expertise and sound advice.
This blog will let you know about upcoming printmaking related events, workshops, exhibitions, etc. Use it to let others know of your own news and any interesting print-related discoveries. So, send me those posts asap and I'll get them on our site, right here!
For those of you who have been to the studio, you've seen our expanded space and enhanced facilities. Those of you who haven't yet visited, contact Randy and she'll set up a time for you to come and see what we've done to improve the studio.
Now showing at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA has been enthusiastically received. Several of the included artists have done gallery talks and demonstrations that have been very well attended. Roger Hankins, the Gallery Director and his assistant Paula Rosenbaum have been terrific to worth with and our deep appreciation goes to Mixit member and Holy Cross Professor, Susan Schmidt for suggesting the exhibition to Roger.
The show comes down January 31, 2014. Stay tuned for notices about pick up.
