Confessions of a first time – my prints are at the Firehouse

“Prospect Avenue No. 1” a Direct-to-plate photopolymer gravure by L.S. King

Confession #1: Excuses. Nine Thousand words, three media releases, a few blurbs, PR coordination and social media this and website that – the energies this require have kept me too long from this blogging pursuit. The positive thing is that the 9,000 words were for a paper/process manual on Direct-to-plate gravure I wrote for a research class. And yes, after sacrificing both weekends and printmaking time, I got the “A” I desperately wanted. The rest was all for my eight-to-fiver lifestyle compulsions.

Confession #2: Passion. But even as the words dribble out from my brain fog and headaches, I still have pertinent happenings for this blog. This printmaking obsession that hoards my thoughts, my desires, my bank account, has new meaning and a new set of accomplishments to go with it. Feeling the itch to share my work in a non-cyber environment, I once again began the lottery of sending work to juried shows. But this time, rather than applying with my comfort-zone of photographic images, I sent prints. And in return, I received adrenaline-pumping validation.

Confession #3: First Time. The first gallery to jury my prints into a show is the Arts Council of Baton Rouge’s Firehouse Gallery. The exhibition is called “Contemporary Print: An International Survey of Printmaking in 2016.” It opened yesterday and runs until Sept. 1,. The reception is Aug. 12 from 6-8 p.m. Did you think I meant some other first time?

Confession #4: Pressed. A little personal trivia about my two pieces in the exhibition, other than they both feature birds and different processes: I used two very different presses to print them. “You Have A Friend in Monterey” was a drypoint I did last summer on my faithful pink-with-rhinestones toy press. And “Prospect Avenue No. 1,” is a photopolymer gravure I created this summer at the Direct-to-plate workshop in Santa Fe. The press for I used there was a lovely, adult-person, dare-I-say-the-unpolitically-correct “big-boy” Takach. “Propsept Avenue No. 1″ features a view from my current dining room to the last house I lived in (yes, the latter is Boxwood.” Also, please that “Winter Bird,” a public art piece I did years ago, insisted in making an appearance (even if he was trying to avoid being photographed).

Confession #5: Stalking. And so this post is not without a special thank you. Kudos to Kelsey Livingston, who curated/coordinated this impressive group of cool printmakers. I am humbled to be included. Maybe that sounds inauthentic, but coming off another rejection a few months ago (as it turns out, for the first time, I was ever so grateful not to be included in a show – let’s just say my work did not fit in at all), I am overwhelmed by the amazing artists in this show. Yes, I Facebook stalked them.

Confession #6. Missing. As I will miss being physically at the exhibition (I am living vicariously through USPS), if anyone who reads this sees the exhibition, let us know what you think. Oh, and I will tell you about the other exhibition in another post.


The Unwinding Path is the blog of L.S. King – photographer, want-to-be printmaker and sometimes hypnotist. By day she is an arts communications officer at a rural university (translation: photographer, writer, and media content provider), and most of the rest of her time she is an MFA graduate student at Radford University.


  1. Excellent post as always, and congrats on the printmaking show.

    • Thanks, Tim! And how cool that you were there when I made the print!
