Gallery: Art Walk at the Jerome High School Studios and Galleries


Exceptionally talented painter and print maker Robin John Anderson has a huge space in building "C" at the Old Jerome High School Art Studios and Galleries. He and his wife Margo Mandette, also a talented painter, have filled this space to the brim with paintings, sculpture and prints that range from mural size to the more modest scale etchings. The gracious, classically trained artist demonstrated the process of making a print from an etched plate, a technique that has been in use by draftsman for centuries. The silver plate is first covered in a wax that is later drawn upon with a steel nib. The plate is submerged in an acid bath that eats at the silver, etching the plate wherever the artist has removed wax through the drawing process. It can take many applications of wax, redrawing and acid baths to create the finished plate. We see Anderson ink a finished plate, burnish most of the ink away so that only the etched groves have ink remaining in them and run it thru the press covered by a piece of archival printing paper. Because of the hardness of the plate, this process can be duplicated many, many times. Stop by Anderson's studio/gallery and he see his amazing work for yourself.
