The epic tale of the University of Wisconsin LaCrosse Printmaking Program. The Printmaking program is directed by Joel Elgin and features the odd collection of the many PrintFools who enroll, print and exist from semester to semester in the Shop of Tears.

Land of Cockaigne: Where Printmakers Gather

The time has nearly arrived, PrintFool of Past and Present, to call this semester over; time to celebrate the exhibition of UWL Printmakers of Past and Present. On the 10th of December, the exhibit will open. You all will show up (here) for the opening at 7pm. From here the magic link will be revealed that will guide you all to the exhibition. In true printmaking style you will be expected to celebrate with the finest of foods and drinks, retaining enough clarity of mind to engage in witty conversation via the comments and Maggie's facebook page. Plan though to end the night as depicted below:

In Dutch the Land of Cockaigne is Luikkerland, the land of lazy and gluttonous: All you loafers and gluttons always lying about Farmer, soldier and clerk, you live without work. Here the fences are sausages, the houses are cake, And the fowl fly roasted, ready to eat.

Amazing detail in the etches. I really love the shading done and the attention to contrast in the background...it really makes the three figures stand out. It reminds me of the old paintings/etchings that depict London's "gin" epidemic amongst the poor populace. Ahh, Bacchus!

Johnson said...

I love the print...I feel like that everyday haha...Its also very narrative and detailed, sweet. My blog address was posted in an earlier forum...

I keep on forgetting the damn blog, urrrrh. I am happy that this semester is over except that it means that I only have one last semester to print everything that is in my head as well as find the time to do it.

Karl Marxhausen said...

I am forming some thoughts for a paper I am writing, and I need outside opinions in this
matter.In your opinion,
what place do book plates have in the history of printmaking?

Were they any less sophisticated than other etchings and wood engravings?
