Steamroller Print Day
April 28th, 11am-5pm
In conjunction with our current exhibit Under Pressure showcasing regional printmakers, Arthaus Projects will be hosting a demonstration of a unique method of printmaking using an industrial pavement roller to turn the street into a gigantic printing press. Several of the exhibiting artists including John McKaig and Chad Andrews along with other local printmakers will be producing woodblock prints pressed with the 1.5 ton roller in front of the Arthaus Projects gallery at 140 W Fourth Street in Williamsport.
The public is invited to come out to talk with the artists about their work while watching it come fresh off the press. The gallery will also be open to the public to view the Under Pressure show, and to showcase the steps involved in creating a woodblock print before the pressing, from the initial drawing and carving to inking.
