David will be creating an edition for Rolling Knob Press, a multi-plate/stone lithograph, and meeting with drawing and printmaking students to discuss their work.

I am glad David Morrison is your visiting artist.
I should know David, I graduated from UW-Madison in 1983. I took Lloyd Menard's printmaking class, though it may have been around 1981. It was fabulous, anything Lloyd does is fabulous.

Hey, Cynthia, good to hear from you. Yeah, we're looking forward to David's visit. He does beautiful work and is currently involved with some nonobjective imagery, so it'll be an extremely engaging week. I'll post the finished print when we're done. Come back and take a look.

Is this one of his Brian? I'm sooooo hoping that this is something along the style he'll be making while he's there! I love that piece.

This is interesting. It's 'waterless' lithography? I guess it's supposed to be less time consuming and more ecofriendly?

Yes, Connie, that is David's work, although what he'll be doing in our shop is a nonobjective image. It'll be a great learning experience for all of us.
