Hey Suzanne, Darryl, Hans, and others who wrote in about this--

I wanted to post something much earlier, but I just got off jury duty in a murder trial.  Whew.  That whole 'jury of your peers' thing is one scary concept.   But we ultimately did the right thing, and so I hope you're all feeling that much safer tonight. ;)

But I wanted to write, because I'm so excited about this exhibit for Katharine, and that so many of you are interested in submitting your work to this.  I'm so happy about that; thanks so much!

Barbara, I think that any gum-over type prints fall under "associated gum printing processes," so I don't see any issue with that at all.  Good to hear from you.  I do kind of miss the traveling portfolio, too.  It was the pony express mode of travel I found troubling. ;)
