Katie Ries

Co-Presenter with Stephanie Carpenter and Berel Lutsky

Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum has been a sponsor/collaborator for Really Big Prints! since the beginnging in 2014. Now the museum will be our “home” as they hosted this year’s event and have provided a home for the archive. RBP! has been a biennial fixture at the Hamilton Wayzgoose since 2014. This year’s collaborators, Berel Lutsky, Katie Ries, and Stephanie Carpenter will speak about the origin story of RBP! (which includes a story about small amputation with a happy ending), and the ins and outs of creating the collaboration necessary for a communal printmaking event.
