Kids of all ages came on Saturday to BBP to make prints. I was so luck to have Candy, Emmanuel, Lois and Lucia helping me, we were swamped! I prepared 450 sheet of printing paper with the plan to use it this Saturday and on December 11th and I went through almost all of it. One boy was so excited to make his own undersea world installation at home, he probably made about 25 prints. The kids were awesome, from 2 year olds through probably 75 year olds, plus a large group of international students. Well over 200 people came in 2 hours. I never get tired of that look people get on their faces the first time they make a print. It is magic.
Finally, I have updated my portfolio website. This site, the one you are reading now, has been great to use as a blog and I will continue to do so. But for my artwork I am happy to share my newly up to date site at hilarylorenz.com
Also, Saturday, November 19th, I will be offering the second of three free drop in printmaking demonstrations at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Come on down to 99 Plymouth Street between 1 and 3pm and make a print to take home. We are especially fortunate because Christina Pumo from Speedballart donated the new and wonderful Speedball Professional Relief Ink for our workshop. Thank you Christina and Speedball!

I was excited to get the email asking if I wanted to be on TV. I would meet NY1’s Roger Clark at 6a.m. to do two live new spots at my exhibition in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The news team would then “package” together a segment that would replay all day.
The interview was great advertising for my second free workshop at the park. It will happen on November 19 from 1 to 3pm. You can click here for the details. Don’t let the “kid” workshop fool you, it is for everyone, 99 Plymouth Street, corner of Washington. It is just south of the Manhattan Bridge in DUMBO. It is walking in and out any time.
It was loads of fun to be interviewed by Roger, he was amazing and make it easy. I didn’t tell him that I don’t own a TV. I never have.
