Anchor Press, Paper & Print, formerly -The Center for Collaborative Research is the site for the study and production of multiples and acts as a catalyst for a diverse range of projects. This is a creative laboratory designed to encourage and link research, innovation, and education in art and collaborative art practice and social engagement. Currently operating out of our POW (Press On Wheels) 2000 Ford Bus.
A couple of days ago CCR conducted its first POW (Press On Wheels) of the season at the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha.
The little kids made monoprints, and for some, it was their first experience making prints. We are planning additional print activities throughout the summer. Thanks to the Kenosha Community Foundation for funding this activity. We would also like to thank Julia Schiller for working with us and helping the young budding artists make their first prints...
Loaded up the Truck for our first work session at the Boys & Girls Club. Just had serious front end work done on the truck. Ready for the season. BUT, the lift gate for the press didn't work, so the workshop was canceled. Tomorrow I take the truck to get the gate fixed.
We survived the Polar Vortex - Shoveled snow and kept warm. It's time to get back to work. Our trusty POW vehicle made it through the winter - the other day I started it right up. no jumper fingers, no crossed fingers.
Our first Spring adventure in the next few weeks will be to take our POW over to the Kenosha Boys and Girls Club. we will set up the press and will make prints with the kids.
The image below was take with Julia Schiller, Marilyn Propp and two of our amazing, brilliant kids. A great day!
We have some great events lined up.
