AN INVITATION TO

piece of art. A work of visual art speaks to each person differently. Some viewers may be drawn first to subject matter, style or color. Others may not be able to articulate exactly why a particular piece grabs them and makes them stop in their tracks, but they stop just the same. Art has this magical power. Art compels us, urges us, and seduces us to shift our perspective, let down our guards and imagine a different present moment, if only for the briefest of times.

ALICE

was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, and what is the use of a book, thought Alice,

WITHOUT PICTURES OR CONVERSATION?

So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her. There was nothing so VERY remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so VERY much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!� (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but when the Rabbit actually TOOK A WATCH OUT OF ITS WAISTCOAT-POCKET, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it hop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.

There seemed to be no use in waiting by the little door, so she went back to the table, half hoping she might find another key on it, or at any rate a book of rules for shutting people up like telescopes: this time she found a little bottle on it, (“which certainly was not there before,” said Alice,) and round the neck of the bottle was a paper with the words “drink me” beautifully printed on it in large letters.

WHAT A CURIOUS FEELING said Alice; “I must be shutting up like a telescope.”

Poor Alice! It was as much as she could do, lying down on one side, to look through into the garden with one eye; but to get through was more hopeless than ever: she sat down and began to cry again. It was the White Rabbit, trotting slowly back again, and looking anxiously about it as it went, as if it had lost something: and she heard it muttering to itself. “The Duchess! The Duchess! Oh my dear paws! Oh my fur and whiskers! She’ll have me executed, as sure as ferrets are ferrets! Where can I have dropped them, I wonder. . .

I wonder. . .

MARYLOUWILLS


MARYLOUWILLS I find printmaking a wonderful way to express myself. My most recent work is a series containing images extracted from my photographs, which are then digitally printed over my monotypes. This combines what I have learned in a number of classes at Yavapai College, including printmaking, photography, Photoshop and digital printing. I am fascinated by the way I can combine several processes and styles to create something new and unique. Experimenting with varying techniques in etching and intaglio has also drawn my interest. Each technique allows me to present my ideas in new ways. The creativity enabled by printmaking is a fulfilling way to share my view of the world.

JOSEPHINEARCHER


JOSEPHINEARCHER Josephine Archer was born in Saltburn, England, South Yorkshire on December 13, 1972. She received her M.F.A. from the University of Oregon in 2004 and moved to Prescott in 2006. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1995 from the University of Central Florida in Printmaking and Drawing. She is presently teaching Printmaking at Yavapai College. Josephine’s artwork is Interdisciplinary Printmaking. She combines materials and explores the possibilities of them while creating. The main theme of her work is to stir up the viewer’s sense of imagination and promote a sense of wonder. Subjects that influence her work are Eastern Indian and Native American Art. Other fields that inspire new work are Native American spiritual beliefs and cultural mythology.

LESLIEPARSONS


LESLIEPARSONS Leslie Parsons pursues her art through the combination of new printing methods with traditional techniques. Traditional monotypes provide the vibrant, textural, spontaneous backgrounds, while intaglio, digital overprinting, and gel transfers allow for the manipulation and development of the artistic or photographic image. The backgrounds of our lives are our experiences that make up our total being to date. The image is the focal point of each new day, a snapshot of any specific moment in time. Thus, my art is a combination of the abstraction of the background, juxtaposed with the realism of the moment, the focal point of the image. But just as new experiences must be well integrated into our current knowledge, so too, must the focal point be well integrated into the background of the art. Thus my art is a statement of my life.

MARIA A student at YC since 2005, I have taken drawing, painting, Photoshop digital photography, digital printmaking, photographic lighting, and printmaking. In addition to traditional methods of etching and aquatint, I use Image On (intaglio type) and Solarplate to create plates. Utilizing my photographs in printmaking and collage, I often incorporate gold leaf and other organic materials. Whatever the media, I “meld� various images to make them integral to the piece. Many of my works are abstract compositions based on organic elements in which the colors and forms establish harmonious and balanced relationships; others include graffiti from other languages. Also a student of digital art, I am experimenting with digital transfers onto glass and plexiglass.

LAURIEHAMMOND


LAURIEHAMMOND I feel drawn to nature because of its inherent beauty, which I find relaxing and almost therapeutic. Several years ago, I started working with traditional black and white photographic images and branched out into alternative processes: Cyanotype, Vandyke, liquid emulsion and Polaroid transfer. While looking for another way to use my photographic images, I enrolled in a printmaking class, which has become a fascinating adventure. With so many new techniques and processes to explore, I feel an overwhelming excitement as I create new images.

STEVEMASON


STEVEMASON Since high school, I have explored how we see, deconstructing form and emotion, coming to focus on making stereoscopic art. I start with a photo, print, painting, or drawing, manipulate it in Photoshop, then print it — the results have been startling and more in sync with my 3D vision of the world. I hope through my art to open myself and others up to what makes us see what we see, understand how limiting our thinking process can be, and how it can jam our perceptions and keep us from comprehending more fully ourselves and the world around us. Steve Mason was raised outside of Boston and received a bachelor’s degree in studio art from Stanford University with six months in Florence, Italy. He currently teaches and oversees the 2-D Fine Arts Program at Yavapai College in Prescott, as well as creating his own art and pursuing his stereoscopic research. He has exhibited nationally and this past year has shown work locally and in New York City. 46 | THRESHOLD

KENKASTEN


KENKASTEN Inspiration for my art comes from all things natural; then I infuse the nature of man into my work. I enjoy using the title of a piece to steer the observer into a second direction, allowing them to draw their own conclusions. Often there is a statement made between the lines. I started to explore the art world a few years ago. Recently I was asked if I consider myself an artist. My response was that we are all little artists as children, then as we grow older, we become so busy that some of us forget that fact. I’m in the process of remembering...

SAVERIAJUDGE


SAVERIAJUDGE I’m excited by the breadth and sensitivity of the monoprinting process. I can work with the immediacy of painting directly on a plate and pull one print. Or, I can work with many plates, layering and offset printing, combining chine collÊ elements and gouache painting in a series of changing, nuanced prints. One thing leads to another and hand printing gives me the time to get specific when I need to. Saveria was born in Itri, Italy and lives in Paulden, AZ. She presently works as a Lab Tech in the Yavapai College art studios. She is active in the community and schools and brings fine arts into youth education programs. She attended Swain School of Design, BFA, New Bedford, Mass, Brooklyn College Graduate School, NYC, and U. Mass, Dartmouth, education studies.

SARANORD


SARANORD Art communicates something through image, color or feeling. For me at times art comes from the soul and it communicates messages about our connectedness to our planet, the animals, all beings, and spirit. Everything is related. More art, more love, fewer problems. I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. My current love is printmaking. I live in Prescott with my two sons, two dogs, two cats and two chickens.

BETSYANNDALLY


BetsyANN My artwork is often inspired by random images and ideas forged through my personal experiences in life, such as: the Internet, old books, religion, and travel. I have a quirky and sometimes-dark humor interpretation of the way I see the world around me, which I share with others through my artwork. When something inspires me, I begin by sketching an idea of what I might like to express. I often combine as many as three or four techniques from monotypes, etchings, relief cuts, and chine collĂŠ to simultaneously communicate my ideas. Currently my work has been focused on relief cuts and finding a means to print them in different and non-traditional ways.

DONNRAWLINGS


DONN My part-time training began about six years ago, when I decided that anyone could learn a modest amount about design and drawing, and since then I have narrowed my focus mostly to printmaking. As a practiced doodler, I have followed the path from mark-making to pattern to context (and “meaning”).  Watching pleasing patterns emerge from exploratory mark-making has led me to try to understand the contexts of meaning that move me about these shapes and to become more purposeful in developing them.

BARB My artwork is driven by a passion to experiment and create. I work with bare copper plates, blank relief plates and white silk or paper. Inspiration comes from the national forest around my home, quick marks or words in my journal. Every piece is a new journey through layers of imagery, discovery and my response to the materials. My work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States as well as Asia. My work is touring Europe through 2015, and has been awarded Best in Show, Surface Design awards and Public Institution Purchase Awards. It can be viewed at Van Gogh’s Gallery in Prescott, Arizona.

Luckily for Alice, the little magic bottle had now had its full effect, and she grew no larger: still it was very uncomfortable, and, as there seemed to be no sort of chance of her ever getting out of the room again, no wonder she felt unhappy. But then, thought Alice, shall I NEVER get any older than I am now? That’ll be a comfort, one way-never to be an old woman—but then--always to have lessons to learn! Oh, I shouldn’t like THAT! The Caterpillar and Alice looked at each other for some time in silence: at last the Caterpillar took the hookah out of its mouth, and addressed her in a languid, sleepy voice. “Who are YOU?” said the Caterpillar. “Talking of axes,” said the Duchess, “chop off her head!” “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat. “I don’t much care where—“ said Alice. “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat. “Well, then,” the Cat went on, “you see, a dog growls when its angry, and wags its tail when its pleased.
