RBPMWRBPMW is pleased to host an Artist Talk with artist, printer, and instructor, Minna Resnick. Resnick will be teaching a Gum Printing workshop at RBPMW this Fall. During her artist talk she will briefly discuss this process and show examples of her own artwork.
Minna Resnick has lived in Ithaca, NY, since 1987, where she also maintains her studio. She has shown both nationally and internationally and has work in over 50 public and private collections, including the American Council on Education, Washington, DC, and the United States Information Agency. Her work is represented in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, NY; the Denver Art Museum, CO; the New York Public Library; the Newark Museum, NJ; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England; and Kunsthaus Grenchen, Switzerland. Resnick's work is also represented in over 30 university and municipal collections. In 1980, she was the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and she received New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships in 1991 and 1995. In 1999, she was awarded a Constance Saltonstall artist fellowship. Most recently, in 2007 and 2009, she organized an international printmaking exhibition and related symposium in China. Resnick continually gives lectures and workshops around the US, and teaches part-time. Gum Printing, also known as paper plate lithography, is a method of inking up an image directly from a photocopy (or laser print) and transferring it to paper. The process is similar to lithography with your photocopy becoming your printing plate. This is a relatively easy, quick, and fun method to get images - both simple and complex - onto good paper.
