You might recall seeing this beautiful etching by #OhioArtist and Ohio University professor Art Werger in the Ohio Arts Council's Riffe Gallery exhibition “Duo Trio: Contemporary Diptychs and Triptychs by 14 Ohio Artists.” This is a detail from the left panel of “Overview,” which shows a bird’s-eye view of a quiet suburban neighborhood.
.
In addition to the work shared as today’s #FeaturedFriday, Art’s etchings, aquatints, and mezzotints that explore themes such as time, space, and perspective have received more than 250 awards and recognitions around the globe.
.
Art was recently selected to take part in the Ohio Arts Council Dresden Exchange Residency Program. Art will be in Germany until mid-October at the Grafikwerkstatt in #Dresden. Meanwhile, two Dresden artists, Elke Daemmrich and Jens Küster, are wrapping up their residency at Zygote Press, Inc. in #Cleveland this week before returning home!

Intro to Paper Marbling

Sunday September 22nd 2019, 10:30 - 4:30PM

Marbling is the technique of transferring paint suspended on water to another surface, traditionally paper. Students will learn the essentials of marbling with acrylic paints: how to set up a marbling station, how to prepare their paper, and how to recreate traditional marbling patterns. Students will also have the opportunity to explore and play to create marbled monotypes.

Please help us in welcoming Meryl Engler to Akron, Ohio! Meryl received the live-in Artist in Residency position at Rubber City Prints for a full year until September 2020. Please follow her @meryle_art on Instagram

Meryl Engler grew up in Huntington Beach, California playing lots of different sports, hanging out on the beach and drawing as much as possible. Meryl made a big transition to attend Syracuse University where she studied sculpture, printmaking, religious studies and history, and also competed on the women’s rowing team. Next she attended graduate school at University of Nebraska-Lincoln for studio art with an emphasis in printmaking. This is where she developed her love of colorful woodcut prints. Meryl has shown in Lincoln, Syracuse, Los Angeles, Houston, and internationally. For the past three years, Meryl coached rowing at Lake Oswego Community Rowing outside Portland Oregon. She is so excited to explore Akron while getting to make art full time again at Rubber City Prints.

For the next year Meryl will be building her portfolio with a focus on woodcut in our Printshop! Please schedule a one-on-one instruction time with Meryl on Wednesdays 12-8pm [email protected] or
call/text 330-269-9837

Students will learn the essentials of marbling with acrylic paints: how to set up a marbling station, how to prepare their paper, and how to recreate traditional marbling patterns. Students will also have the opportunity to explore and play to create marbled monotypes.

Claire Marks, a native of Akron, OH, has spent the past several years immersing herself in the mesmerizing world of paper marbling. For her undergraduate thesis at the Cleveland Institute of Art (2015), Marks explored oil-marbling as a medium for expressive, abstract storytelling. Her prints have been exhibited in many northeast Ohio venues including the Morgan Conservatory of Papermaking, Summit Artspace, and the John F. Seiberling Gallery. Marks sells her marbled paper and hand-bound books through her business Peaceable Kingdom Books.
