RE: Somewhat Off Topic

Congratulations. Beautiful image and a very successful photogravure print;
you can't tell it apart from an inkjet print at that magnification ratio.
(Yes, web reproductions suck...)

I'm pleased to mention that one of my  polymer plate photogravures entitled
"Hetta's Bowl With Pears" from a the limited edition series The Adventures
of Hetta's Bowl won the grand prize at the Norris Cultural Art's Center
VICINITY Show and the Lester J. Norris Memorial Award.  This is a juried
show that includes all types of art media submitted by artists from the
Chicago area.

This image & print is the first of a series of 10 images based on this
beautiful old wooden bowl.  Hetta is the mother of dear friends and was
quite a wonderful character.  She was a social worker and wife of a
prominent University of Chicago Professor in Sociology, Clifford Shaw.  He
started the Chicago Area Project and his work led to the development of the
Peace Corps by Shri ver.  Hetta made wonderful salads in this bowl using a
technique all her own and had a wonderful way with people.  My favorite
quote from Hetta regarding politicians:  "Something that a few good
Christian burials might solve!"

The show will be up October 3 through November 14 at the Norris Cultural
Arts Center in St. Charles, Illinois.
Pardon me in advance for my lack of humility in sharing this.
Best Wishes,
Mark Nelson
