Create transfer prints with local artist
BRATTLEBORO - “There/There” is an exhibit of abstract landscape paintings by Frank Jackson, made on burlap using the quick-drying medium of fresco. The Brattleboro Museum & Art Center will present a transfer prints workshop with Jackson. The workshop will take place at River Gallery School on Saturday, July 23, at 2 pm and is open to adults and teens ages 14 and up. The fee is $45 - $40 for BMAC members - and includes all materials.
At the workshop Jackson will guide participants of all skill levels in creating transfer prints, a process that begins with inking a plexiglass plate, placing a sheet of paper over it, and drawing on it from the back. The image is transferred through the pressure of the hand and the drawing implement. The plate can then be printed on a printing press, which picks up the remaining ink and leaves a duplicate of the drawing but in reverse. The result is two artworks: a line drawing and its negative.
