About this event

The Bristol Art Museum will present a demonstration by Providence-based artists Angel Dean on Gelatin Plate Monotypes and a speaker, Elizabeth Goddard, who will discuss Relief Printmaking –Multiple Plate Woodcut technique on Sunday, November 6 from 1 to 2 p.m. at the Museum, 10 Wardwell Street in Bristol.

Providence artist, Angel Dean, will demonstrate the versatility of gel plate printmaking. These plates are essentially a print plate made from gelatin – thick and soft, easy to handle, and perfect for making monotypes. They are durable, reusable, stored at room temperature, and ready whenever you are. Simply apply paint with a soft rubber brayer, make your marks, and pull your print. Create beautiful patterns using tools like sponges, textured rollers, stencils, and rubber stamps. Angel will show how easy, fun, and totally addicting this printing plate can be!

Dean, a native of Knoxville, Tennessee, received her BFA from the University of Georgia and her MFA from Cornell University. She spent 15 years in New York City performing and recording for Rounder Records and Diesel Only Records. Angel has written, recorded, and released dozens of songs with her husband, horror writer Jonathan Thomas.

In 1994 she moved to Providence and began to channel her creative energy into the visual domains of encaustics, printmaking, collage, and mixed media. Angel is an active member and past president of New England Wax, a professional organization dedicated to promoting excellence in fine art made with encaustic and cold wax mediums.

​Newport artist, Elizabeth (Lisa) Goddard will explore her Relief Prints (linoleum, woodblock) and the process by which she creates her exquisite prints by carving away areas of a flat plate with gouges, chisels and knives. The cut areas allow the white of the paper to show with the flat surface of the block inked to produce the image. She will demonstrate her tools and plates, and explain the registration process she uses to create her beautiful multi-color woodcuts. She is particularly interested in telling visual stories about the natural world.

Goddard moved her studio to Newport in 2018, after 19 years as co-founder of Studio Goddard Partridge in Pawtucket, RI. From 2008-2015 she was executive director of the Newport Art Museum. She has taught painting, drawing, journaling and printmaking. Goddard has juried numerous exhibits and has appeared on radio and television programs on the arts. Her work is in public and private collections including Fidelity Investments; New Britain Museum of American Art; Newport Art Museum; Boston Athenaeum; University of Connecticut; Fairfield University; Wheaton College and Slater Museum. www.printmakersnetwork.org
