On Saturday, September 19, from 10am to 4pm, the Center for Contemporary Printmaking continues to celebrate its 20th Anniversary with a Steamroller Printmaking Festival in conjunction with Stepping Stones Museum for Children's Worldwide Day of Play in Mathews Park. These limited edition large-scale relief prints (as large as 4' x 8') will be printed in the Center's parking lot as the steamroller serves as printing press to roll over the carved boards. All ages will enjoy this free event as children and adults can watch the steamroller print these large-scale woodcuts. Ten artist/printmakers, who submitted proposals in June 2015, were selected for this event. Artists include: Helen Cantrell, Lyell Castonguay, Daniel Chiaccio, Katherine Dufault, William Evertson, Roxanne Faber Savage, Sally Frank, Nina Jordan, Cara Lynch and Nomi Silverman. These artists have spent the past month carving into large blocks of MDF (medium-density fiberboard) or plywood.
