Gallery Crawl

    On Saturday, January 16th, our group visited two iconic print dealers in Kansas City to learn about prints and printmaking. We met down in Brookside, near 59th and Main, and listened to the St. Louis artist, Bryan Haynes. He told us his plans to create a new lithograph. While at the American Legacy we looked at previous ones he had completed.

Haynes discussed the creation of a new lithograph. There was much planning that went into creating a new print.

    By 2:45 pm our group had driven over to 2011 Tracy Street, up on a bluff overlooking the east side. Some climbed the stairs, and others enjoyed riding up the old wooden shipping elevator. In the Lawrence Lithography Workshop, Michael Sims showed us Haynes newest print in process. It was quite an ordeal to get the image off the lithographic stone. Wow.
