collaborative printmaking

Heather loves the stimulation and camaraderie, not to mention the opportunity to stretch her technical skills, that emerges from the experience of collaborating with local artists to produce original graphic images.

Responding to archival material supplied by the scholars responsible for organizing and curating “PopSex! An Exhibition of the History of Sexual Science” furnished the starting point for the creation of a unique print.  This print became part of a larger installation included in the “PopSex!” exhibit at the Illingworth Kerr Gallery in January 2011.
