BIG INK brings together artists, community organizations, and the public to produce large scale black and white woodcuts for exhibition and educational purposes. Artists from the US and abroad submit a proposal to create a big print through their website. Print studios offer their facilities so artists may collaboratively print the work while museums and galleries mount exhibitions of the finished pieces. The project was initiated in 2012 by Lyell Castonguay and his partner Carand to share their acquired knowledge of working large.

 

At Maryland Hall, we’ll be utilizing BIG INK’s giant 48” x 96” mobile etching press to pull prints. Accepted artists will have two months prior to the event to carve their image into a piece of plywood. BIG INK remains in contact with each participant providing guidance and technical support when needed. Artwork made during workshops will be exhibited from Aug 6th - 19th at Maryland Hall.

We invite visitors to come and see the workshops being held on August 4th and 5th. The printing press will be stationed outside of the Eatery on our first floor, nestled in our Alcove galleries. There will be small sample wood-blocks that visitors can learn to use, and for just $2 take home their very own block print! Visitors will watch artists ink up their pre-carved wood blocks, handle paper, and learn how to use a professional printing press.

Local artist Jin Lee has installed a test run of the work she will be installing for her
January-February 2013 exhibit on the front lawn of Maryland Hall.
 

 

 

 
A brief statement from Jin Lee about her work:

Cloud Passage was inspired by the packing material used for my move from the west coast to the east coast. The final form will be a representation of my personal journey, of the transitions I experienced when I moved to San Francisco and back to Annapolis. The trees, symbols of the two communities, are linked by a web to express my connection to both coasts.

The desire to use this material birthed the concept behind the classes I proposed to Maryland Hall; to teach my students how to make site-specific art with re-purposed materials. Cloud Passage is constructed entirely with materials and methods easily obtained and learned by students enrolled in my class.

The current installation is a test to understand how the material will behave in the environment and hold up to the elements. A more complete sculpture is scheduled to be installed in January of 2013.
