Printmakers to collaborate, mentor students

Printmakers Linda Ridgway and Katherine Brimberry will work together and with art students as part of the Print Research Institute of North Texas’ annual artists’ residency and collaboration April 4 – 9 at UNT.Linda Ridgway and Katherine Brimberry

Brimberry is owner, director and senior master printer of Austin-based Flatbed Press and Gallery, which produces limited editions with artists, as well as hosts exhibitions and technical workshops.

Ridgway is a trained printmaker and sculptor whose bronze wall reliefs often incorporate images of nature or women’s themes, such as fabrics and articles of clothing. She teaches at Cedar Valley College in Lancaster and her work has been displayed at the Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth and the Dallas Museum of Art.

Together they will combine their talents to create hand-pulled fine art prints that Ridgway will further develop with drawing techniques. The resulting works will be shared with collectors and institutions, such as commercial galleries.

They also will deliver lectures to students and the public. The Core Talk lecture is at 1 p.m. April 6 at Sage Hall 116, 1167 Union Circle, Denton. The Open House is from 4 to 6 p.m. April 7 at P.R.I.N.T, Oak Street Hall Annex, 1120 West Oak St.

Ridgway and Brimberry have worked together since 2000 and collaborate once a year.

“She has a way of helping me explore all kinds of new ideas and thoughts,” Ridgway said.

Advanced printmaking students will assist them with the work. Ridgway, who has taught for 38 years, feels printmaking is a vital part of an artist’s education because it covers a variety of forms — from sketching to screen printing — and allows them to make mistakes.

“It teaches people to let go a little bit,” she said. “I’m always saying, ‘Look at what you have, not what you think you want.’”

Gibbons said the goal at P.R.I.N.T is to expose our students to the collaborative creative process.

“The professional print shop is one of the few places where students can witness this type of dynamic, creative exchange between professionals,” Gibbons said. “Students often become part of the discussion, decisions and process that it takes to make new work.”
