In the fall of 2012, I had the amazing opportunity to spend two weeks at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology working one on one with master print maker Julia D'Amario. The Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking Residency was established in 2002 to provide artists with little or no printmaking experience the opportunity to explore a new creative medium with guidance, instruction, and technical assistance from Julia. With seventeen years of experience working at Pace Editions in New York City, plus many more years beyond that making prints, Julia is a fantastic technician, teacher, and artist. The program is generously supported by Jordan Schnitzer, one of Portland's most prominent print collectors. Learn more on the Sitka Center website.
