Plate to Paper will celebrate the non-toxic printmaking processes of Zea Mays Printmaking in Florence, MA. Liz Chalfin, director and founder of Zea Mays, practicing artist and pioneer of many non toxic print processes shares her Flat File Project - a collection of works by selected members of the Zea Mays facility. The artists works demonstrate the product of various techniques of non toxic printmaking from etching to relief to mono print - just some of the processes that will be available at the printmaking studio at Chases Garage.
Classes in silkscreen and etching will begin this October at Chases, taught by local artist, Dylan Haigh of Haigh and Martino and Sarah Wonson, a Mass Art graduate living in Gloucester, MA. In the meantime, join us for an exhibition of amazingly talented and forward-thinking artists!
