The Hot Type Portfolio project I’ve been coordinating is nearing fruition after 3 years. 25 artists of the Providence Art Club have created something special…an original prints portfolio that speak to both personal and national issues. Collectively theses prints document a unique time, a time when the use of superlatives — unprecedented, incomprehensible, unfathomable — became commonplace. A time when artists sought to understand a world of distortions, discord, and disease. They responded with various measures of wit, clarity, and integrity. Printmaking has a long and proud tradition as a visual voice; it is exercised here using both beauty and ugliness to speak. I’m so proud to be a part of this project and hope you will visit the newly created website — www.Hot-Type.org. Only one portfolio #2/28 was available for purchase; it was auction off during the Hot Type Portfolio Exhibit at the Providence Art Club Dodge House Gallery (June 20 – July 16, 2021) to benefit the club’s Education Program. The Hot Type Portfolio will go on exhibit at the Bristol Art Museum in RI October 15 – December 19, 2021) as part of the ALL TYPES Exhibit. www.bristolartmuseum.org

My Brooklyn Art Library Sketchbook Head in the Clouds is now online. I created this sketchbook almost 2 years ago but with the number of sketchbooks the library receives and the pandemic… had quite a wait. But is was worth it. Just Google Brooklyn Art Library and type in my name or book title to see the entire scanned book.
Stay safe….best – Carol
Letters from the Earth is altered book I created for the Printmakers Network of Southern New England upcoming 2022 exhibit at the Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford, CT. My inspiration came from the book’s title — the words “letters” and “earth.” I found a beautiful old alphabet design for the letters to pair with antique insect illustrations to represent earth. I used Suminagashi paper I made for the endpapers.
