Ideal Engagements is a risograph portfolio featuring the work of 15 members of the California Society of Printmakers who all work primarily in traditional printmaking methods. This portfolio was created in an attempt to bridge the gap that exists between traditional printmaking and this new printmaking technology, asking each artists to make an original piece conceived specifically to be risograph printed. Ideal Engagements hopefully shows a range of how expansive the medium can be.
Portfolio include 15 8x10" pieces including work by Marty Azevedo, Susan Belau, Meri Brin, Zach Clark, Betty Friedman, Karen Gallagher Iverson, nif hodgson, Joanna Kidd, Sarah Klein, Mary V. Marsh, Stephanie Mercado, Golbanou Moghaddas, Gisela Ramirez, Toru Sugita, & Frances Valesco.
Ideal Engagements was printed across an MZ1090, RZ310, & RZ220, throughout 2021, in an edition of 150.
This project was made possible by a Membership Engagement grant from the California Society of Printmakers.
