Upcoming WAAM Event: Carol Wax, mezzotint engraving printmaker

Remington-Return Carol Wax

Parallel Perspectives in Pencil, Pastel, Paint, and Print
An illustrated journey through the creative process

Sunday, April 29, 2 pm

Free for WAAM members/$5 non-members

This hour long presentation focuses on the ways that mezzotint engraving has informed Wax’s work in diverse mediums and affected her growth as an artist. It includes a brief description of the mezzotint process followed by images of her preparatory sketches, drawings, pastels, oil paintings, prints and comparisons of similar images as treated in several mediums. Points of discussion include: her philosophies about creative cognizance; approaches to exploring artistic concepts; the necessity of developing healthy work habits; learning how to benefit from creative play; balancing practicality and inspiration in one’s career; and many related subjects of interest to anyone interested in the visual arts.

The talk will be followed by a question-answer period, and a chance to share refreshments with the artist at Bearsville Graphics Art Gallery at 68 Tinker Street where an exhibition of her prints is currently on display through May 6th.

Carol Wax, author of The Mezzotint: History and Technique (Abrams, 1990, 1996) is one of the world’s leading authorities on this centuries old engraving technique. Her award winning prints are in numerous museum collections including the Smithsonian, Philadelphia and Metropolitan Museums of Art.
