Artists at Work
11/09/2017

(Top)



Off-the-Wall Graphics stands out when it comes to expert knowledge and reliable, excellent performance in custom silkscreen printing, embroidery and color separations. Located in Greensburg, PA, the company is owned and managed by husband and wife team, Steve and Anita Kozinko. Steve is the screen print manager and the color separation and screen creation artist. Unique in his ability to separate jobs into the best color combinations for the screen printing process, he rarely uses standard CMYK colors traditionally used for offset printing. With their precise Epson SureColor T3270 printer, Steve generates screens up to 80 lines per inch that are printed using water-based, discharge or standard inks and - voila! His output equals works of art.



The equally talented Anita supervises the embroidery department. A prominent bead artist, her works have been exhibited nationally and regionally. She was named a finalist in the 2017 BeadDreams annual competition for her entry of Mandalas - a bead embroidered adult coloring book, and she received the Craft Award for her “Ancient Lights” at this year's Westmoreland Art Nationals Exhibition.



Along with their production team they continually provide exceptional service to businesses, non-profit organizations and schools. We've been pleased to serve Off-the-Wall Graphics for 20 of its 30 plus years in business.

Pittsburgh Gives - Artist Image Resource
10/05/2017

(Top)
Five words come to mind to describe Artists Image Resource (AIR), located on the North Side neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Educate. Inspire. Stimulate. Experience. Create. Whether one is an established artist, a novice printer, or a person hungry to whet their creative appetite, AIR is the go-to facility locally, regionally and nationally for printmaking and is equipped to produce relief, intaglio, lithography, screen printing and digital printing projects. Its mantra ~ Production – Education – Community ~ is evident throughout the artist operated, non profit print and imaging organization. Buzzing activity of resident artists, students and community visitors is constant and print artworks can be viewed in progress or hanging on walls throughout its space. Go on a studio tour, sign up for a workshop or take an in depth, refresher tutorial and experience first hand what this extraordinary laboratory offers.



Executive and Artistic Director, Robert Beckman, enthusiastically talks about resident artist Ricardo Ruiz’s work in progress, describing one step of the process.




Can't transport your students or community group to AIR. . . they’ll come to you! Mobile printing units allow participants to learn all aspects of the photographic silkscreen process.




Ben Page is AIR's in-house printer extraordinaire. Here, he explains the intaglio process.




Examples of printmaker works decorate the walls of AIR adding interest, color and voice.

ANCIENT INK – Photographs by Mark Perrott
06/06/2017

(Top)
Tattoo ornamentation in America has come a long way since the early 19th century. While previously ignored and considered to be on the fringe of society, tattoos have reached an accepted, aesthetic level that is celebrated throughout mainstream America.

Photographer Mark Perrott has spent several decades documenting tattooed Americans. He began his study in 1979 at Island Avenue Tattoo in Pittsburgh, PA, and has explored tattoo parlors all across America. Coming up this month at the Erie Art Museum, Bacon Gallery, is a show of Perrott's current series, ANCIENT INK. Mark focuses his camera on the now increasing tribe of highly decorated and graying Americans, introducing the viewer to dozens of individuals, including Jim and Marge.

Pittsburgh native Mark Perrott has worked as a professional photographer for the past fifty years. In addition to his commercial work, which includes portraiture and photography for annual reports, Perrott has spent his life making photographs that document Pittsburgh’s citizens and its rich industrial landscape. In the early eighties, he gave special attention to the life and death struggle of steel in the Mon Valley, with a special focus on the Jones & Laughlin steel mill and its Blast Furnace Department, informally known as “Eliza.” Photographs from this project were used to create the book ELIZA, published in 1989 by Howell Press. In 1999, he published HOPE ABANDONED, a four-year investigation of Eastern State Penitentiary, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 2013, he published his third book, E BLOCK, an extended photo essay on Western Penitentiary. Perrot's photographs are included in numerous museum collections, including the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, The Westmoreland Museum of American Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
