The following is a press release issued by the County of Mendocino:
Mendocino County Museum invites all linoleum and woodcut printmakers to participate at the 40th Annual Roots of Motive Power Steam Festival’s unique printmaking workshop on Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11 from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., at Recreation Grove Park across the street from the Museum, located at 400 E. Commercial Street Willits.
Roots of Motive Power will be firing up their Buffalo Springfield steam roller and putting it to work as a public print press; heavy machinery and fine art combine at this beloved community event.
Workshop and printing are on a first come, first served basis. Artists with blocks exceeding 8 inches must supply their own paper.
Mendocino County Museum is inviting interested artists to also submit one print made during the festival to be displayed alongside our ImPRESSED: a Celebration of Printmaking exhibit for the month of September. *A signed submission form is required and available at the museum.
