Mono Print Demo by Tony Ortega, Saturday, May 6, from 2-4 pm
Tony Ortega will demonstate a printing technique where the paper and plate are pressed together on a printmaking press with the pigment sandwiched in-between, creating a texture that is impossible to replicate by painting directly on paper. The paper is then peeled off the still-wet plate, creating an element of surprise as the image has been flattened, squeezed and moved around by the paper pressed into the ink. The final result on paper may look quite different than the image on the plate!
Mamiko Ikeda and Harry Tulchin Musical Performance, Saturday May 13, from 2-4 pm
Mamiko Ikeda and Harry Tulchin will perform Mamiko's original songs featured in the video installation at the Alone+Together exhibition, as well as some Japanese and Okinawan folk songs featuring acoustic guitar, sanshin (Okinawan shamisen) and mandolin.
