Second State Press, CraneARTS Building, 1400 N American St, Philadelphia, PA 19122, invites you to their Show + Tell on November 11, 5- 7 PM, featuring a presentation by Linda Dubin Garfield, printmaker/mixed media artist. “The ART of Printmaking” will include a history of Garfield’s path to becoming a full time artist, the print techniques she uses and how she combines traditional printmaking with new technologies.
Held on the second Sunday of November from 5- 7 PM, Show + Tell is an opportunity for members and local artists to come together to talk about art and break bread. Participants bring food and art work (sketches, samples, works in progress, finished work, etc) that they would like to share and get critical feedback on. Each month a guest artist will help facilitate the conversation. This FREE event is open to ALL, both members and nonmembers of SSP.
Located in the Crane Arts Building, Second State Press is a nonprofit 501(c)3 communal printmaking workshop whose mission is to foster the development of ideas and innovation in printmaking by providing artists with a professional, affordable, and supportive workspace.
Linda Dubin Garfield, an award-winning printmaker and mixed media artist, creates visual memoirs exploring the mystery of memory and the magic of place, using hand-pulled printmaking techniques, photography, collage and digital imaging. Her abstract and dynamic works use multiple layers of ink that waver between background and foreground creating a fusion of surface design and abstract expressionism She also creates installations that include public participatory art, especially when she is exploring themes relating to women in today’s culture. In 2005 she founded ARTsisters, a group of professional artists who empower each other and their community through art. In 2007 she started smART business consulting, helping emerging artists reach their goals and their audience, providing consulting and coaching on the business side of art through individual, small groups, and workshop experiences as well as providing opportunities to exhibit work. Today she serves on several non-profit boards, including being President of Da Vinci Art Alliance, and appreciates her good fortune to be able to make art every chance she gets.
