ROLLING KNOB PRESS:

Collaborations and Work with Visiting Artists

Visiting artists spend time in the studio, give lectures or portfolio reviews, show how their artwork is made, and speak about how to make a life as an artist. With each of these artists, students have the opportunity to connect with a professional practitioner of contemporary art. This is part of a long tradition for the IUS Printmaking program. For decades Rolling Knob Press, the fine art publishing component of the IU Southeast Printmaking program, has hosted nationally-recognized visiting artists as they create new work in our studio and lead workshops to share their innovations in the field.

 

During a Rolling Knob Press project, students of all skill levels work closely with a visiting artist from start to finish, conducting collaborative problem solving and research to help artists realize their projects and putting their existing technical proficiencies to work. The ability to assist artists in the realization of a new artwork is a practice that is highly-valued within graduate programs, professional printmaking studios, and fine art publishers, each of which require printmakers to display a breadth of technical abilities and leadership skills in the studio. In 2016, Rolling Knob Press published an edition of original prints with artist Nick Satinover, head of the Printmaking department at Middle Tennessee State University. Students learned new processes in lithography and archival collage, and helped him print an edition of seven prints, titled Three Days in New Albany. In 2018, we published an edition of original intaglio collagraph prints with artist Becky Alley, in conjunction with her solo exhibition in the Barr Gallery.
