IT'LL BE FUN, I SWEAR


DIVE IN DINER, linoleum block print and rubber stamp on reeves bfk paper by Patricia and Jacob Sahertian

The deadline is approaching on the Great Art House Print Exchange 3. This is the first one we are participating in though and Jake and I thought it would be fun to do this as a collaboration. The theme is "It'll be fun, I swear." We tried to think about what someone might want to persuade you to do that would be so dreadful they would have to swear to its being fun. Since I am not a big outdoors fan and Jake and I rarely swim, we imagined diving into a body of water, only to find a great surprise. See more pictures on flickr.

The exhibit will be held on July 16th at the Brooklyn Art Library. One of the most exciting aspects of this project though is that we will be receiving, in exchange, 15 prints from other artists who are also participating. We can't wait to see what comes in.

  1. This is such a beautiful treatment for a traditional block print. Nice work. Both of you. But why am I rooting for the fish?
