Open Studio and Thunder and Lightning Press

Barbara Bruch with our Thunder
and Lightning Press, Summer
2012, during a storm
Planet Art has acquired a press created by the late Glen Alps especially for collagraph. Thunder and Lightning Press will create print editions and offer workshops with artists Barbara Bruch and Alice Dubiel.

To acquaint you with the press and our recent activity, we invite you to an open studio, November 11, 2-6pm. Barbara and Alice will offer demonstrations on the press and small works will be for sale, including Alice's stencil, below. It's also an opportunity to hear about Alice's recent exhibition in Gwangju, Korea and visit to the city's Biennale.

Barbara Bruch studied with the late Glen Alps at UW and authenticated the legacy of his studio. For over 40 years, she has offered workshops in collagraph and other printmaking techniques. She is also available for private lessons. Alice studied printmaking with Barbara and other NW instructors, working primarily in collagraph and mixed techniques including polyester lithograph and digital media.

For more information, contact Alice Dubiel

Planet Art and its printing division, Thunder and Lightning Press, are located in North Beach, Ballard, near North Beach creek, north of the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks

2811 NW 93rd Street
Seattle WA 98117-2936

Due to numerous conflicts in Portland and a few in Seattle, Barbara Bruch will not offer a collagraph workshop in Portland this fall. Thunder and Lightening Press plans to offer workshop opportunities in Seattle and Portland in the new year. We acquired the Alps Press as a result of the closure of Sev Shoon Arts Center in Ballard.

Lights of Women: an international exhibition in Gwangju, Korea Fall 2012

As part of a delegation of women from the Pacific Northwest, I was invited to exhibit work in Gwangju Korea. Lights of Women featured work by over 140 women artists from around the world, was sponsored by the Geumnamro Gallery of the Gwangju Art Museum and opened during the opening week of the Gwangju Biennale.
