SECOND SUNDAY: Gelatin Printmaking


May’s SECOND SUNDAY is a printmaking event lead by Lisa Wheeler on Sunday, May 20, 2-4pm at 100 Water Street in Hallowell. Participants will explore gelatin printing, a low-tech, non-toxic, versatile, experimental hand printing process. Artists of all ages will work small and fast to create a collection of colorful monoprints layering color and pattern. Come with a sense of adventure and see what unfolds. Open to all experience levels. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.

Lisa F. Wheeler is a printmaker, teaching artist, and art teacher who loves sharing the art making experience with others. Lisa was a 2015 J. Robinson Trust Scholarship Award Winner at Circling the Square Press in Gardiner, ME. She has exhibited in solo and group shows throughout Maine, won awards for her work, and has original pieces in corporate and personal collections.

SECOND SUNDAYS are community art-related events on the second Sunday of every month from 2-4PM at The Harlow. These events are free and open to the public. Some materials are provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own as well. SECOND SUNDAYS are opportunities to both try something new and sharpen old skills – they are open to everyone; beginners and masters alike. SECOND SUNDAYS brings artists and art lovers together to enjoy the process of making art as well as looking at art and discussing it. Most events are perfect for families, and all are welcome.
