Lenore Thomas visiting artist…

Recently we hosted visiting artist Lenore Thomas. Lenore is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Pittsburgh. I’ve known Lenore for a while now, and we have been talking about visiting each other’s schools for a long time, so it was really great to finally have her in the WVU Printshop!

Lenore brought A TON of work for us to look at.

After we looked at prints, Lenore did a quick sugar lift demonstration for us…

She uses Speedball drawing solution for the sugar lift…

Thank you Lenore, for sharing your work and your insights with us, it was a really fun day!
