I would like to invite you to an exhibition of my prints at the Fundación Migliorisi in Asunción, Paraguay. The opening is on July 25, 7:30pm. My exhibition runs parallel to an exhibition by indigenous artists from the Chaco, which is curated by Ursula and Verena Regehr. Most of these artists are the same that participated in my printmaking workshops in 2013 & 2015 and I'm very pleased to show my work in this parallel exhibition under the same umbrella title.

My printing press is in my studio! I am so very excited! We still have to mount the gear box cover and calibrate the pressure gauges. However, I'll have to wait with the inaugural printing till I get back from my exhibition in Paraguay (more about that a different day). Anyways, the press has arrived and is here to stay. I'm happy!

We had taken the press apart into four pieces to get it down the stairs with three guys (Chris and Terry: thank you so so much for helping!). Terry had build some support structures and rigging to help manoeuvre the pieces down the stairs, which was really helpful. Lets not think about how we'll ever get it up the stairs again quite yet.
