Steven Dixon: Mine Site No. 17
photogravure 58 x 70 cm
Master printer, teacher and friend Steven Dixon just let me know that some of his photogravure prints are on exhibition at Lando Gallery in Edmonton, Alberta until December 11th. If you are in the area, you must see them; if not, the gallery website gives us a good look.
Photogravure is an old technique that has had something of a revival, and Steven has mastered it superbly. If you are interested in learning more about photogravure Steven has two sites to recommend:
Kamakura Print Collection is a bit long but has good reproductions and good information.
Lothar Osterburg's site is good, not quite as detailed but easy to understand.
You might recall Steven's name because I've posted about some of his exhibitions this year as well as the "Traces" exhibition that Steven, Bonnie Jordan and I presented in Pohjanmaan Museum in Vaasa, Finland in 2002. Then there are a few posts about our travels together to Finland and Estonia.
