Parsons Print Club Meeting Today: Senior Show

Today (Thursday, April 25th) at 3:15, the Parsons Print Club will be having an informational meeting in the print studio (4th floor of 66 Fifth Ave.) regarding a possible year-end show on the 10th (and maybe 4th) floor.
We will be seeing who can commit to submitting and hanging this show, which would be curated by printmaking faculty member Paul Marcus. Ideally, interested students would have total involvement so everyone can say they helped out. It will be loads of fun! So make sure you stop by to get all the information on this great opportunity.
Any underclassmen interested in helping out, this is a great chance to learn how to handle and hang prints.
If you can’t make it to the meeting, send an e-mail to newmi70 [at] newschool [dot] edu for the information. Screen Shot 2013-04-22 at 3.45.25 PM

Illustration Alum Jill Bliss featured on 20×200

Illustration Alum Jill Bliss is staying busy.  Two different prints of hers were recently featured on Jen Bekman’s 20×200 website. Here is Jill’s artist statement:

In all the work that I do, I’m interested in the boundaries between separate communities or ideas—the common ground where things intersect, cross-pollinate and co-habitate.

In ecology, an area that contains habitats common to two communities, as well as others unique to the transition zone itself, is called the ecotone. This area is typically characterized by greater species diversity and population density than occur in either of the individual communities.

In my mind, “people, plants and animals” or “art, craft and design” are not so different from one another. I believe that everything and everyone are interconnected and similar—it’s just a matter of each functioning with a different set of materials, and at varying speeds and scales. I hope to call attention to these ideas in my work, and to celebrate the small overlooked details that showcase these interconnections and samenesses.

Head over to 20×200’s site and there might still be some of Jill’s prints available.  And of course, check out Jill’s website for more goods and information.

Keep up the amazing work, Jill!
