Working Proof: Printmaking podcasts

Seattle artist Ben Moreau has started a podcast series that focuses on printmakers and issues that are of interest to printmakers called Working Proof.

The latest Working Proof podcast is from celebrated woodcut artist, Karen Kunc. After a long hiatus Working Proof triumphantly returns. She talks about her beginnings
in printmaking, how travel affects her work, the role of bookarts in her studio practice, and changes she has
noticed in woodcut printmaking over the years. Check it out here

Working Proof officially launched in April 2009 with a discussion with University of Wisconsin's John Hitchcock; talking about his work, some of his projects and ends with
thoughts about current trends and practices in printmaking. Check it out here

Other Working Proof podcasts include a talk with Seattle gallery owner and print dealer Sam Davidson, Washington State University's Kevin Haas and more.....
