Apotheosis at Marston Hall

I have not posted anything since returning from Australia and New Zealand. Now, in late April, I am finally getting around to posting my newest engraving, Apotheosis at Marston Mall. Because it was a commissionesd work for Iowa State University's College of Engineering, I did not write or show progress reports on LJ. But now that the edition is printed and delivered, I think it is alright to share it with the world. I drew on site in October, made the engraved plate in January to early March. The edition was printed in Venice in March and April.

The building is Marston Hall, completed in 1905. The facade featured the four Muses of Engineering, the four divisions of the college at that time. I brought them down to earth, and added eight additional Muses to reflect the current number of engineering divisions at ISU.

I have followed your site here for some time. I am going to be an artist in residence in Venice at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica starting in mid September. I work in screen printing primarily. But I don't know anyone in Venice. It looks like you are there sometimes? Let me know if we can connect. Thanks, elizabeth

Hi, Elizabeth. Yes, I am frequently in Venice and at the Scuola di Grafica. I will be there through mid-August, not at all in September, then again from mid-October. You will make friends with the artists and students at SIGV. People are very welcoming. If we do overlap, I will be happy to meet you. It should be a very stimulating and inspirational time for you and your work. Thanks for following my drawings and prints on Livejournal. Amy Worthen
