This event will feature noted printmaker and book artist Cynthia Weiss, who will provide a demonstration of the trace monotype printmaking technique and a discussion of how she uses these prints to create her artist books. Following these discussions, all participants will have the opportunity to create their own trace monotype prints under Cynthia’s guidance. All necessary supplies will be provided.

Cynthia Weiss, of Mountainside, is an established artist whose work is held in the permanent collections of the US State Dept, Newark Public Library, Montclair Art Museum, University of Wisconsin, Deutsche Bank and many other private collections in the US and abroad. She is known not only for her printmaking, but also for her paintings and artist books. Recent New Jersey exhibits include the Pierro Gallery, 1978 Maplewood Arts Center, Printmaking Center of NJ and the Morristown Public Library.

Cynthia states that her creativity is guided by a “reverence for nature, from the grandest of vistas to the simplest tree. “ She creates her prints using Akua ink on archival rag papers by BFK Rives. When dry, she adds color using gouache, and then often builds them into accordion-fold books with handmade covers. She explains that each completed book is “like a small gallery that you can carry with you.”

This event is free to all WAA members, and is open to the public. A $5 donation is suggested for non-members. Light refreshments will be served.

About WESTFIELD ART ASSOCIATION (WAA): Since 1922, the Westfield Art Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, completely volunteer organization, has provided art education and public exhibitions, and continues today to actively encourage its many members in the pursuit of individual artistic goals and growth.

More Traffic, No Solution – Letter to Governor Phil Murphy

July 17, 2018

Dear Governor Phil Murphy,

In fact, on Wednesday, September 29, 1976, the local newspaper ran an article with a photo showing my mother and her protest placard. The memory of that ...
