Zines and Prints at the BMA
This is a weekend of stacked DIY fun!
Just found out about the Baltimore Fair for Contemporary Prints & New Editions.
The event runs on both Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
So it looks like you can check out the limited edition portfolios, single-image prints, and local zines either after you're done painting beehives on Saturday or eating some delicious Chinese street food on Sunday.
So awesome that all of these events are within a 10 minute bike ride of each other.
Local zinesters and artists will be available- so many that I am afraid to list all of their names, because I'd have to start adding links and giving shoutouts to neighborhood shops, and my typing hands would explode! So just go to the BMA site and you can see all the details.
(That's the latest edition of Eight Stone Press's completely hilarious and rowdy Baltimore-centric zine pictured above.)
You can click on the link to the BMA event to see the variety of artists, panels, and tours at the event.
And there is going to be a special discussion of DIY printmaking:
Saturday, March 27, 11-5 p.m.
Learn about the do-it-yourself printmaking phenomenon directly from the artists! Participants include Atomic Books, Closed Captioned Comics, Eight Stone Press, The Holster, Jordan Jeffries, Gary Kachadourian, Leeking Inc., Narrow House, Shattered Wig Press, and Squidfire. Works by DIY Marketplace artists will be available for purchase, and two exhibitors will take part in the afternoon program, New Directions for Printmakers.
