Gelli Prints with Sandy Daly


Gelli Plates allow production of a textured print on paper, even fabric.  Monoprints can be embellished with stencils and stamps, or other mark making materials.  Using a 3” x 5” Gelli plate and printing on 4”x 6” notepaper, you'll produce at least one finished product.
 
MAG will supply Gelli Plates and brayers for use in this class along with some acrylic paints and Acrylic Paint Retarder to slow the drying process.  If you have particular colors you’d like to use, please bring them.  Have favorite stencils or stamps, or special paper you'd like to use?  Bring them along.  

If you don’t want to share plates and brayers, Gelli Plates & Brayers are available through on-line art suppliers or Amazon for approximately $10 each.

Saturday, October 5th

YES – we have a date for our first ever Art Walk!  Artists will be painting on porches, in gardens, in front of businesses… selling their work, engaging with the public.  Also sharing apple cider in a special MAG container.  That’s what we're working toward.  This new project is a massive endeavor, our goal is to raise the recognition of MAG by promoting our artist’s talents.​​​
  
MAG members Fee $35, non- members fee $50 for participating. You may set up bin work or any other display for sales of your work.  All sales are yours to keep, no commission will be charged. 
 
Committees are formed now…Advertising, Artist Participation, Spaces (porches/gardens/etc), Hospitality, and Gallery.  Please help us make this new experience a success.

If you would like to participate as an artist, please contact
Anne Buck.

Our ARTWALK will be a contributing event to the international program - The Big Draw.  This year's theme - ‘Drawn to Life: creativity and wellbeing’ - encourages events and conversations around the role of mark making and drawing – in its widest possible interpretation, as a life-enhancing tool not only to help express and navigate the challenges of life around us but also as a tool for healing.

For more information about "The Big Draw" 
go to thebigdraw.org.  Mispillion Art League is coordinating this event with many local art groups, guilds, and leagues through the state. We are excited to be a part of it!
