ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
“When in Greenland she kayaked across five miles of storm-tossed water, dodging icebergs. Landing safely on the beach, she collected a reindeer skull to bring home.”
First there were storytellers; then the cave painters added to the stories, and illustration was born.
Using linoleum printmaking techniques and optional watercolor, this workshop will explore the ways in which you can bring to life your story, poem, favorite quote, or memory. During the process, you may realize that there is more to your story than you ever imagined; this workshop will help you find the perfect image to enhance your text.
All levels welcome. Bring a text if desired, or just your stories and memories.
Carol Zaloom, artist and illustrator, makes hand-colored linoleum prints. Her client list includes Random House, David Godine, HarperCollins, Tower Records, Hampton-Brown, Yankee magazine, Sky & Telescope, the State University of New York, Bard College, the New York City Parks Department, and many artists and arts organizations throughout the Mid-Hudson Valley.
Carol’s studio is situated in a stone-and-timber house built by an Irish quarryman in 1852; in the 1930’s it was home to Saxton Fells School of Art, owned by A. A. Champenier, a WPA muralist, and in 2008 it received Historic Landmark status from the Town of Saugerties.
Among Carol’s prints are depictions of mythological creatures, Japanese fairy tale motifs, portraits of great writers, landscapes, and studies of birds and animals (including work inspired by the Paleolithic painters of prehistoric Europe).
Carol’s painted baseball, The Garden of Eden, is in the private collection of John Thorn, official historian for Major League Baseball and author of Baseball in the Garden of Eden. Other painted baseballs by Carol Zaloom are in the private collection of Tim Wiles, director of research at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, NY, and author and former big-league pitcher Jim Bouton.
