For the Love of Copper!
Artist in Residence Workshop with Katie Bruce (Day 1)
Friday, August 12, 6:00-9:00 pm
Saturday, August 13, 9:30 am -12:30 pm
$125 +GST per participant
Casa Printmaking Studio

Friday focuses on introducing processes, mark making, drawing on copper plates. On Saturday, participants etch the plates, alter them further and print. Each student will walk away with an etched copper plate, and an edition of 3 prints.
On day one, plate prep will be demoed and participants will receive plates that have already been prepared. Using a variety of tools, we will explore mark making – both intentional and accidental – for the remainder of the first day. During day two, our plates will be etched and the resist will be removed to reveal the etchant's effects. A number of post-etch, low-tech alteration processes will be shown, including sanding, scuffing, dry-point and burnishing.
Using a buddy system, everyone will be able to print an edition of 3 prints, which Katie will flatten for all participants. Students are encouraged to come back to the Open House on the 25th to collect flattened prints, or to drop by during my normal hours (9:00 am – 6:00 pm) two days after the workshop.
Participants are asked to come with either an old work shirt or apron that they don't mind permanently dirtying, as well as a pair of neoprene gloves. A box of disposals will be available.

Call 403-327-2272 or stop by Casa's front reception desk to register

Casa Artist in Residence Open House with Katie Bruce 4:00pm Free admission

Casa Artist in Residence Open House with Katie Bruce
Thursday, August 25, 4:00 -7:00 pm
Casa Printmaking Studio

Using Casa’s 2D Studio for three weeks in August, Katie Bruce will edition and print the near three-dozen small-scale intaglio prints and chine collé them onto handmade paper, before binding them into books.
These serial images will focus on the experience of tightness of breath (the shallow, pain-filled shortness); the apprehension and arrest one may feel more widely throughout the body as breath becomes difficult (wishing tension from chest, skin, lungs) and the relief one senses as it is returned (with slow, meditative sighs). As an abstracted visual narrative, it is through the slowing of time experienced with book in-hand that guides the viewer to embody this tender meditation on breath.
Presenting grasp and breath, tension and respiration, further implements the body of the viewer within their own physical space. Fostering a juxtaposition in expectations between the book – thick, lofty but feather-light – and the bronze sculptures – surprisingly weighty for such palm-sized pieces – the pairing of these two works continues my explorations in texture and touch, much in the same way the pairing of cheir ourgia and the sense of nearness have recently.

All are welcome - the open house is free to attend!
