Meeting In Person

SteamrollerBrad

Last week fellow Baren Forum member Brad Robinson of San Francisco visited western Massachusetts and we met at a local cafe to talk shop. Here's Brad with the print he did a couple of weeks ago at an event in San Francisco where 16 artists carved 3x3 foot lino blocks, inked them and pulled prints using a steamroller! Brad said his block took a month and a half to carve - I can imagine it taking a month and a half just to carve that lettering! It was really neat to meet another Barener in person, especially one as nice as Brad. Another example of Brad's work can be seen at City Art Gallery. Brad and I are both participating in Baren Forum's Exchange #26, so I'll get to see yet another of his pieces in just a few weeks.

Thanks for looking me up, Brad!
