Not Lost! Linocut Printing with Artemio Rodriguez – Film Premiere
Bettie Page: The Electric Lady Print Show
Burning Bones Press (1518 Yale #1)
Burning Bones Press will present the premiere of Tish Stringer’s short film Not Lost! Linocut Printing with Artemio Rodriguez. As a Mexico City-based printmaker who works primarily in black and white, Rodriguez’s signature style emphasizes simplicity and clarity. Rodriguez regards his 10 years as a printmaker as the beginning of a long quest. Stringer’s film documents Rodriguez in Houston — his exhibition at The Printing Museum and passing along his linocut techniques at Burning Bones Press workshops. Part of an ongoing series documenting endangered technologies, the film was shot on 16mm, VHS and minidv. Not Lost! will show at 7 p.m. at Burning Bones Press (1518 Yale #1). This project is funded in part by the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance. Coinciding with the film premiere is the “Bettie Page: The Electric Lady” print show – a tribute to THE queen of pinups, Bettie Page. This alluring vixen was and is an iconic figure who influenced sexuality, taste in fashion, and has had a tremendous impact on our society. She wasn’t just a pretty face, but a spark of a woman who exuded true confidence, energy for life, creativity and intelligence. The show is curated by Aubrey Carroll and Hannah Goheen.
