Hugo Bastidas statement about the print:
A childhood friend sent me a photo of his step-aunt when she was a toddler posing with ten Zulu warriors. Having painted a number of works several years ago similar in content, I knew it would make for a wonderful image; innocence surrounded by the reality of the unknown. The photograph was made into a painting with a colored blue sky added to the original black and white still.

Lithograph – Image Size 12 x 8 1/2 inches
Federal Hall National Memorial, 26 Wall Street, was built in 1842 at Wall and Broad Streets. Sculptor John Quincy Adams Ward created the bronze statue of George Washington in 1883, marking the approximate site of the George Washington’s April 30, 1789, inauguration. Architecture is the primary inspiration for my art and one of humankind’s greatest achievements. My hand-drawn lithograph took many months to complete, drawing from my photographs and on-site sketches. These photographs were taken over a 20-year period. It was my first stone lithograph in more than 30 years and the first time a statue appears prominently and the first time a person appears in one of my prints. 26 Wall Street is one of the best examples of classical architecture in Manhattan. I was also intrigued by the fact that not much has changed to the exterior of this building since John Frazee designed it 176 years ago.

Linocut and Serigraph – Image Size 13 X 10 1/2 inches
This is a three-color mixed media print made with two linocut blocks and one silkscreen. It was printed with oil-based inks on Arnheim 1618 Warm paper. The paper size is 16” x 13 ½.” The image size is 13” x 10 ½.” The edition consists of an edition of 100 with 10 artist’s proofs and 2 printers’ proofs. The 2 linoleum blocks and screen were prepared by Charles Yoder. The edition was printed by Charles Yoder and Dominick Rapone.
The artist has this to say about the print: Some years ago he found himself standing in the shadows of a pine forest in deep snow under a sparkling full moon. The simple beauty of what he saw was an epiphany. All that he had been looking for in painting was literally lying at his feet. Theories and isms no longer defined what he painted. The given provided all that was needed. The work became a meditation on that glimpse.
Charles Yoder was born in Germany in 1948 to two American army sergeants. He was educated in Europe and the States, finishing his formal education with a BFA from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY. Over the years he has supported his art making habit with various jobs including director of Castelli Graphics and curator to Robert Rauschenberg.

Aquatint – Image Size 15 3/4 x 20 inches
Eric Goldberg made the plates and state proofs. Cindi Ettinger of Philadelphia printed the edition in March 2016 on Somerset, Satin 250 g paper using two copper (steel-faced) plates and Charbonnel inks. Goldberg said the etching and aquatint came “to enompass more than just that one morning in June â€¦ It became the light of morning … As a metaphor, I am amazed with a sense of renewal and awakening. As a part of the natural world it is the splendor of the morning light, which amazes me. Born in Bridgeport, Conn, and now of Philadelphia, Goldberg works mainly in etching and painting, depicting realistically rendered images. His prints and paintings are in many collections such as The Taiwan National Museum of Fine Arts, The Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, The Boston Athenaeum, The Boston Public Library, and The Newport Art Museum.
Serigraph – Image Size 10 X 14 inches
I photographed this image in Irving, TX June 26, 2014. The camera used was a Nikon D800 with a 105mm f2.8 Nikkor lens. The exposure was 1/40th of a second at f10 and an ISO of 320. The pixel dimension was 7360 x 4912. After manipulating in Adobe Photoshop, I created 14 inkjet positives that were used to create 14 photo-stencil screens for printing. Colors were printed reductively in each screen. Upon completion, 35 color runs were counted.
All of the screen print was done by me with help from my primary assistant, my daughter Hannah, and my son Byron. It was printed in the print studio at Ursuline Academy of Dallas during July and August of 2014. The 35 color runs include: the verso white for the paper’s dimensional stability, repeated white to bury influencing colors, a matt varnish to seal the print, and the small area of gloss varnish to simulate the surface of the torn piece of orange reflective tape in the image. There are no other proofs.
Towers at Dusk
Woodcut – Image Size 8 X inches
The artist has this to say: “ I have always liked the rounded shapes of water towers next to the straight lines of building walls and windows, and the way the sky shapes appear around the buildings. Towers at Dusk shows towers in the late afternoon, with the sun going down. The image was carved on two Shina 3/8 inch plywood blocks and printed on Rives Heavyweight paper (175 grams.) It was proofed in my studio using Graphic Chemical inks on a Martech etching press. Kathy Caraccio printed the edition.”

An Etching of 8 x 6 inches
Artists Comments– Labyrinth Valley was engraved on a copper plate that measures 8 inches by 6 inches. It depicts four imaginary labyrinths within four imaginary valleys. The valleys are also labyrinthine in character, but they appear to have been constructed by natural forces. Who built these things? What’s inside? Everybody loves a mystery and labyrinths are mysterious. If you’re outside, you wonder what could be inside. If you’re inside, you wonder how to get back outside. You wonder what’s around the next corner, and the next, and so on. Someday, I’d like to hear that someone looked at this engraving and discovered within it an answer to a problem. Could it be an erosion abatement project, a way to preserve geological formations, a military fortification? Or an amusement? Evan Lindquist has prepared a DVD illustrating the design and making of the print “Labyrinth Valley” and a copy of that DVD is included with the prints distributed to members.

In the Moment
Mezzotint – Image Size 8.25 X 10.75 inches
“In the Moment” was printed by Art Werger. Using an 8 1/2″ by 11″ copper plate, Werger hand rocked and burnished the 150 prints and 10 artist’s proofs. It was hand-drawn onto the surface of the plate from various photographs cropped and recomposed by the artist in Photoshop. No photographic reproduction techniques were used. The one-plate mezzotint depicts the East Side of Central Park near the Metropolitan Museum. The seemingly casual moment of the scene is rather ironically referred by the title since the image took more than four months to compose.

Mezzotint – Image Size 9.5 x 5.75 Inches
This edition of 160 prints with 10 artist’s proofs was printed by the artist in her studio. The image is printed on German etching paper utilizing Gamblin Portland Cool Black and Graphic chemical 514 bone black ink. The artist remarked that the image was of a Swiss made Paillard-Bolex movie camera. To restore the sense of objects moving forward and back, the perspectives were distorted and exaggerated. The angles, forms, patterns and lighting are manipulated to suggest a zaniness of animation or a cinema of the manic or “Cinemanic.”

Printed in an edition of 150 prints and 10 artist’s proofs. Kipniss states that it is part of his working process to explore an image in pencil, in paint and in print. As the image evolves, its ramifications lead to hints of the next work. This image is well-suited for this medium since in mezzotint the artist literally draws the light as he burnishes the tiny rocked copper pinholes that trap the ink and become the image.
