PRINT SHOP

 
 

All our residents get 24/7 access to our screen printing shop. A fair reminder: this is a print shop in a barn. Is it homey, rustic, and charming? Yes. Is there a learning curve and potential to screw up? Also yes. Ask our Print Fellow for advice and you’ll get a print you’re happy with.

The shop is also the home base of our Print Editions Program, where we invite artists to work alongside our Print Fellow to produce original screen prints.

 
 
 
 

Summer 2019 Print Fellows

Jack Arthur Wood Jr. (b. 1990 Cincinnati, OH) is an artist and educator based in Corpus Christi, TX. Wood’s approach to image making is combination. Paint, print, drawing, collage, and found materials are laid down or exchanged like blankets responding to changes in color temperature. The reductive thinking of printmaking is his painting method, satisfying relationships are teased out through layering. Wood holds a BA from Guilford College and an MFA from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, both in Print Media. Through research and reaction Wood approaches beauty, queerness, idiosyncrasy, and the sublime. He currently holds the position of Adjunct Lecturer in Art History and Drawing at TAMU-CC and TAMUK. Wood attended the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture in 2018.
