Under Pressure Steamroller Printing Event
Printing Big! REALLY BIG at Atelier 6000
Road equipment turned into a printing press. You can see it for yourself – and it should be this year! Atelier 6000 launches an outdoor print shop for a live printmaking extravaganza on September 15 & 16 from 10 am – 4 pm. The Under Pressure printmaking event, held every year since 2007, and featured on OPB’s Art Beat in 2010 will retire this year.
This is your last chance to witness what a crew of artists can do with large pieces of plywood, lots of ink and one big roller. It’s the LAST ROLL! This intensive two-day event gives only 20 professional artists the opportunity to create extraordinary-sized fine art prints. The time-honored manner of pulling print stakes on a new edge, heading outside and using heavy road equipment. Atelier6000’s commitment to fine art print education, and providing a working studio environment for printmakers and other artists, is exemplified in this signature event, now in its final year.
