Qijiang International Printmaking Festival 2011
In November 2011, I exhibited at the 3rd Qijiang International Printmaking Festival. I was invited to China to present my 4-plate, color intaglio process as part of the printmaking symposium at the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. The symposium was a wonderful place to interact with the Chinese students, artists, and faculty, and made for an intense demonstration environment with about 100 audience members closely observing. The festival also included the exhibition at Southwest University, panel discussions, and the Qijiang Farmers' Printmaking Institute. Overall, there were 10 guest artists from all over the world invited for panels and demonstrations.
