Do you know the difference between a print reproduction and an original handmade print?

Loretta Busch, award winning artist-printmaker, will share her exploration into contemporary printmaking processes and perhaps enlighten your understanding of the rich and unique aesthetics of the original hand-pulled print.

Located at Art Alchemy from July 4 to 21, Printmaking is the Medium, handmade artist’s prints; in relief, intaglio, planographic and various combinations. All are created with eco-friendly printmaking techniques. Busch uses printmaking as her tool of artistic expression to retell the story of landscape and the world around us.

Opening reception is Friday from 7-9 p.m.

In addition, Busch invites printmakers, artists, photographers, teachers and creative explorers to learn her techniques to Etch with Light and Water using photo-polymer plates as a safer printmaking alternative to traditional chemicals and acids.

Two workshop sessions have a space available from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., July 13-14 and July 20-21. For more information and registration e-mail artalchemystudio@gmail.com.
