The past months have been real exciting at the studio– last week Recess hosted an open-call art show, complete with live music by the Warpossums and home-made Bon-mi sandwiches by Will Hawkinson. The turnout was fantastic, and we saw just how talented the friends and family of Recess are! Large-scale lithographs, paintings, monotyps, woodcuts, and video-art were all featured at the show.
In addition, prints from our international print exchange with Brazil were on display- over 25 prints in all. The printmakers involved were a combination of members of Recess Press, Atelier Piratininga (São Paulo, BR), and the Solar do Barão (Curitiba, BR). Each printmaker involved was asked to show part of their process, you can view the slideshows for each artist here:
As many of you know, we have successfully reached our funding goal as of March, we are encouraged and excited by all of the support everyone has shown so far!
We received an interesting challenge from one of our patrons a few weeks ago:
“Congratulations! And with 41 days yet to go, continue to fund-raise. If you raise $5,500, we will add $500 to our initial pledge, bringing your new total to $6,000. The $4,000 was a minimum goal, but with more funding you be able to invest in additional equipment that will help with your long term success.”
So, what do you think? Can we make it to $5,500 in the next 10 days? By spreading word about our kickstarter through social networks and blogs I think we have a pretty good chance!
If you know someone who might be interested in our project, please help us to connect with them, and hopefully we can reach this new goal! Our studio will be even stronger with this additional funding.
Huge thankyous to everyone that have helped us so far, come to our wacky events, and encouraged Recess so far! We love you guys!
