They looked like drawings yet they were lithos so I wondered how they were done so they are photo etchings using yellow ink of your drawings what type of paper did you use?

> Thanks

. . . Paul - you might want to make your own Tabletop Proof Press which - as you probably know already

- a used one can be purchased for $100 - 200 US Dollars

usually consist of a flat bed and a simple, single roller on a track above it

> inked by hand with a small roller (a "brayer"), a sheet of paper laid on top, and the roller pulled across to get an impression

like this one below - similar to that which i used for the printing . . .

UC Berkeley PRESS Release - August 28 2008


. . . Morrison Library revives Graphic Arts Loan program <--- click me

By Kathleen Maclay, Media Relations




This 1847-48 woodcut by Ando Hiroshige,
"Fireworks at Ryogoku Bridge" -
is among the artworks available through the Graphic Arts Loan Collection.

(Images courtesy the Morrison Library)




BERKELEY – The University of California, Berkeley's Morrison Library is reviving a Graphic Arts Loan Collection program that 50 years ago

began placing Picassos, Miros and the works of other renowned and emerging artists into the hands of students, faculty and staff.

<snip>

To that end, the Morrison Library is launching a new website with images of approximately 700 framed original, numbered prints that are signed by their creators.

The artwork can be perused and favorites selected for checkout. Borrowers with valid UC Berkeley identification can reserve

artwork online and next Tuesday and Wednesday (Sept. 2-3), library staff will begin handing over the artwork to students.

<snip>

"Berkeley students are pretty responsible people," said Alex Warren, head of the Morrison Library.


The proceeds of past fees were added to seed money contributed early on by the Columbia Foundation, the International Graphic Arts Society,

individual donors and families. The funds have allowed the purchase of new lithographs, woodblock prints, etchings and engravings ranging

from Baroque to the avant-garde, said Warren.


Some might wonder why the Morrison Library operates the Graphic Arts Loan Collection. Not Warren, who said it's an ideal fit for the reading

room/browsing library with its trademark comfortable sofas, overstuffed chairs and extensive collection of current fiction and non-fiction,

contemporary poetry, music CDs and walls adorned with artwork. In many ways, Warren said, borrowers are treating art like a book.

> Recently, July 30 'till August 30, 2008 - Lawrence Street Gallery presented an Exhibition of Smith + Zdeb in Michigan




Objects d'Art: Illuminated Pleasures a Two Person Exhibition by Gene Smith and Larry Zdeb









Larry Zdeb and Gene Smith say that "Objects d'art”, is an exploration into the past. Influenced by Kurt Schwitters, Joseph Cornell and Robert Rauschenberg,

the artists use vintage found objects as a major component in their constructions along with elements of Dada, randomness and chance. Layer after layer,

the surfaces of these constructions reveal a variety of stimulating possibilities to the viewer.


Included in this show is a collection of box constructions, many of which feature battery-powered lighting. With the windows of the gallery blacked out and

interior lights off, gallery visitors can turn on each box beginning with the smallest. In the dark, the normal parameters of the boxes are lost, provoking

imaginative associations. The beauty of these assemblages is in pushing the envelope beyond the boundary of the conventional.






. . . the following Photographs were taken in Gene's Studio back in July of 2006.

(Preparing / Finishin' the Works of Art for Inclusion in the Aforementioned Exhibition)

. . . Lou Reed Marries Laurie Anderson and Performs @ The Redcat w/ Ulrich Krieger and Sarth Calhoun


> Met Laurie Anderson in Los Angeles, Ca. during one of her Performances 'Language is a virus' - she's worked w/ a number of Artist Friends






The REDCAT stage looked like a rehearsal room Friday night when Lou Reed, Ulrich Krieger and Sarth Calhoun took the stage.

Effects boxes, pedals and other sound manipulation tools were strewn here and there in cluttered arrangements.


In the center, a row of guitars sat next to a vintage amp. The set-up was practical, not symbolic, but it also carried a message:

"Tonight's performance by the trio, going by the name "Unclassified," would be informal and almost private, an act of creation

first and a show second."


Not all improvisers adopt this casual aura. Some are highly theatrical, other quietly mystical. Still others are aggressive punks.

But for Reed, one of the most venerated leather-jacket-clad pioneers of the rock era, this evening offered something particular --

the chance to put aside his image along with his songbook, and turn inward. He had his collaborators and the intimate room

downstairs in Disney Hall to thank for that.


Reed has been in an arty mood lately. His latest release is the DVD of "Berlin Live at St. Ann's Warehouse," the Julian Schnabel-

directed concert film of his super-heavy 1973 song cycle of that name. He recently performed with fellow New York boho potentate

John Zorn, and earlier this year he wed his longtime partner, performance art doyenne Laurie Anderson
.


The concert was part of this move away from having to recap "Sweet Jane" for drunken nightclub nostalgics,

and toward a serious legacy . . .



For that, Krieger is an excellent match. The saxophonist, composer and CalArts professor did what Reed had deemed impossible

when he transcribed and arranged the Velvet Underground co-founder's epic 1975 feedback experiment, "Metal Machine Music," for

chamber orchestra in 2002. The two men met at the premiere; Friday's performance and the two that preceded it Thursday were

their first public gigs together.


Like Reed, Krieger is both strong-willed and eclectic. His projects have included the John Cage-focused quartet A Cage of Saxophones;

Text of Light, a group that improvises soundtracks to avant-garde films, and Sus Futuros, a death metal-inspired duo. The German-born

Krieger ranges wide as he seeks the spots where noise and beauty meet, and that makes him an apt helpmeet as Reed cultivates his avant-

garde side. (Calhoun is another fellow traveller, a knob-twisting daredevil who describes himself as an "electronic alchemist,"

and who's currently in Reed's band.)


At REDCAT, the trio played two improvisations in an approximately hourlong set, easing into a distinctive approach. At first

the music's chromatic and dynamic shifts seemed emblematic of minimalism, recalling both Terry Riley and Robert Fripp. Reed

bent notes up high on his guitar fretboard while Krieger found some interesting multiphonic tones deep in his saxophone.


The mood grew grittier after Reed had his roadie fuss with his amp for a while and changed guitars. Calhoun, using a laptop,

a keyboard and a sort of electronic slide instrument called a Haken Continuum Fretboard, added gut-shaking low notes, distortion

and drone to the mix. Krieger responded aggressively, and Reed seemed to draw in the energy, modulating his own contributions more carefully.


The music touched on free jazz, especially when Krieger let forth some quick runs or hit those intense, dented notes aficionados

refer to as "skronk." He was a fiery presence onstage, often bending over an amp to produce feedback or furiously stomping on his pedals.

The approach mirrored Calhoun's mad scientist act, while Reed, older and wiser perhaps, eschewed such flamboyant moves.


Though Reed's playing could be noisy, there was something essentially relaxed about it. He'd spend time exploring one or two musical

phrases, bending notes or varying their tempo, deconstructing bar chords. Only occasionally did he really sink into the raga-like drones

for which the Velvet Underground was famous.


Once in while, the blues surfaced, and the trio's final chords invoked the majesty of the most high-minded heavy metal. But more than

any one moment, what intrigued was the current of ideas that Reed and his colleagues formed into a rough channel.


It was a rare chance to see Reed at his most spontaneous and introspective. A few audience members walked out early, either driven

to leave by the noise (Calhoun's bowel-shaking keyboards were particularly challenging) or by the realization that they weren't going to

be hearing "Walk on the Wild Side." Those who stayed took a different walk than they might have expected, and an interesting one.

. . . Yesterday - Lady Joanne & i went to the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in Belmont North Carolina <----- click me




< took some Photographs of the Exotic Flowers, which i am presenting here . . . later - i shall show Lady Joanne's Portrayals



















. . . a truly special event that includes the descent of thousands of butterflies to The Orchid Conservatory




The Garden has developed exhibits and activities that teach guests about everything from the butterfly lifecycle,

to the anatomy of a butterfly to what will make your butterfly garden a successful one. Each Saturday demonstrations,

butterfly releases and a centerpiece chrysalis exhibit will allow guests to see how butterflies develop as never before.



Through the release of live butterflies and the hatching of chrysalis, the Conservatory will always be a-flutter with

more than 1,200 butterflies, representing eight species native to North Carolina. While some of the population will be

supported by the release of live butterflies others will emerge from chrysalides in the exhibit . . .

<snip>

Wearing bright colors—orange, yellow and red--in the exhibit will encourage butterflies to approach guests and even land on them.
