ME/TO/YOU

Can you think of the earliest object you remember? That’s the premise for the collaborative multimedia print exchange called ME/TO/YOU developed by Danny Greenberg and Becca Moore, graduates from the Washington University in St Louis Printmaking Department and classmates with Siena and Sylva.

After courting almost forty participants to submit a relief block, Danny and Becca traveled to Martins Ferry to use the MITCH Collective printing press to edition the blocks. They have been very entertaining visiting artists with contagious enthusiasm.

The project has transformed the print room for the last few weeks and lots of visitors have come to check it out

The blocks ranged from linoleum to plywood and each one had printing quirks to finesse.

Printing will continue at other locations and once all the blocks have been editioned, there will be an online archive of all the images in addition to the stories behind them. Each participant records a brief explanation describing the inspiration for the image.

Prints of each block will be mailed out to random recipients with a link directing them to the website.

Once the edition is complete, we’ll host an exhibit in our gallery. The portfolio will also be on display at the SGCI Printmaking Conference in Milwaukee March 20-23 2013.

We really appreciate all the work the visiting artists have put into this project and we can’t wait to see all the prints together!
