Add to Favorites Report Listing


BIG INK is partnering with Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts for an event that promotes the appreciation for the art of woodcut printmaking. On August 4th & 5th, 2017 BIG INK is bringing a 48” x 96” mobile printmaking press to Maryland Hall. Volunteers from Big Ink will help pre selected participating artists print woodcuts en plein air. The finished prints will be hung in a highly visible area, creating a viewing gallery for all to enjoy.

Lyell Castonguay, director of BIG INK, will be selecting the participants who will bring giant carved wood blocks measuring at least 24" x 36" in size. Visitors of the event will witness woodcuts being printed in an open forum. Docmentation will be on hand to explain its history, the process, and context in contemporary art. In addition, the artists who created the work will be in attendance to network and answer questions. Prints created at BIG INK events are then exhibited in university galleries, art centers, and museums, such as a recent show in Seoul, Korea.

To cover consumable materials and professional photography, accepted artists pay $275.   We assist in the creation of four prints from your block, three for you to keep and one for the BIG INK portfolio.  Your print is featured in our online gallery and may be included in exhibitions abroad and in the US. Our most recent exhibit was at Florida State University in Jacksonville, before that the Seoul Museum of Art, Korea.  Our 2017 exhibition schedule includes venues in OK, MD, NY, NH and MA.
