|Krista Barrett's glowing personality and playful prints made for a great demo|
On First Friday, October 2, 2015, New Grounds hosted an exhibition opening for printmaker Krista Barrett's newest series - Portals - Mixed Media Prints by Krista Barrett.
During the opening, Krista provided a fun, multi-plate etching demonstration, where she discussed her inking, registration and printing methods, as well as the playful way that she creates rich monoprints from a selection of plates cut to identical sizes. Krista inks each plate differently each time, then combines them in diverse ways, to create entirely unique 'portals' into new, colorful spaces.
