The Theme of Ugly Politics

I’ve been in numerous exhibitions in the last two months. A number of them were on the theme of ugly politics, inspired by the election tensions that ran high right up to the election.

The three judgement and courtroom scenes (shown above) were among them.  The first two are recent works, the other was done previously.

Multiple Shows and Artist Lecture

I curated two shows recently, one was a mixed media exhibition at the Mehu Gallery, and the other was the Carrier Pigeon issue 16 release exhibition that I did with Russ Spitkovsy, Carrier Pigeon Magazine’s original founder.  This show traveled to Kutztown State University in Pennsylvania, where we had another opening, panel discussion, and where I did a monoprint demo and lecture to the art students there. I was also in a political exhibition at the Westchester County Center Gallery and Cultural Center in White Plains that coincided with the election.

Monotype/Monoprint Demo at MoMA was an Honor

These photos were taken during the MoMA workshop.  In the first shot, I am showing one of my monoprints with the help of Justin Sanz, the Master Printer and Director of the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, who assisted me in running the workshop. Standing to my left in the fourth picture, is Michael Ginsberg, the President and Founder of Legion Paper. Next to him is Stephen Fredericks, original President and Founder of the New York Society of Etchers, both of whom attended the workshop. It was such an honor to have these guys there with me.  And thanks soooo much to all of my friends, and students, and former students who attended this seminar.  Its really so touching for me.

My Monotype Demo at MoMA

Bruce Waldman to do back to back monotype workshops at MoMA in conjunction with the Degas monotype exhibition that is currently showing.

I have been invited back to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) on June 14th 
to conduct two, back-to-back Monoprint/Monotype demonstrations and workshops, in conjunction with the Degas Monoprint/Monotype exhibition that is on display at MoMA right now.  At the demo/workshop, I will be showing my work, teaching, and demonstrating how Degas monotype pieces were technically created.

I was initially invited to a closed-door meeting with the curators and staff of the
Museum of Modern Art before the show opened, to show my work and to do a monoprint/monotype demonstration. They wanted to be prepared to answer
technical questions from the public when the Degas Monotype exhibition opened
at MoMA. This event accompanies Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty.

The schedule is as follows:
Tuesday, June 14, 12:00 – ­1:15 p.m.
Floor 2, MoMA Books. Free with Museum admission

SGCI Portland, OR

My prints were exhibited simultaneously in two different exhibitions at The Southern Graphic Conference in Portland, Oregon which was last week.  Five of my etchings were up on the walls in the Carrier Pigeon exhibition, and my piece the “Stalker” (pictured here),  was also up in an exhibition called Men in Aprons, in which a handful of old, seasoned printmakers participated.

Monotype Demo at MoMA

I was invited (along with Justin Sanz, Director of the Robert Blackburn
Printmaking Workshop) to a closed-door meeting with the curators and staff
of the Museum of Modern Art to show my work and to do a monoprint/monotype
workshop and demonstration. What an honor!  They wanted me to prepare them
to answer questions from the public when the Degas Monotype exhibition opens
next month at MOMA.

This workshop was very stressful for me as I felt under so much pressure to perform perfectly in front of this prestigious audience. It worked out well, fortunately, since they were pleased with my demo and were impressed with my work. Because of this, they invited me to come back two more times to demonstrate and teach for the public while the show is happening next month.  I never even dreamed anything like this was possible!  I am a very lucky guy. I feel like I’m am going to have to pinch myself!
