Fall Greetings

Fall Greetings!  

The last 5 months have been very busy around my studio and the pace continues as our weather finally cools.   I have had the good fortune to exhibit my work coast to coast, from Oregon to New York. My work was recognized in three exhibits including the Grand Prize in the Solarplate exhibition at Alex Ferrone Gallery and look forward to working with from Dan Welden next summer.  

Later this week I will give a public talk about my work and in early November there are two events I look forward to: a gallery "walk and talk" and the Open Studio Tour with fellow printmakers.  In January I will offer another photogravure workshop from my studio.  There never seems to be enough time to make art but I am grateful for my full-time position at Pima Community College where I have the fortune to work with such wonderful students and faculty. I wish you all a wonderful fall and may we survive this election season with hope and civility still intact.


Thank you for your continued support
Karen Hymer
