Meet the Artists-John Risseeuw and Dan Mayer

We know how difficult it is to have a meaningful dialogue during an exhibition's opening so we hosted a gallery talk for , WORD UP, artists using language, to discuss the work in the exhibition.

 John Risseeuw and Dan Mayer, educators and artists from the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at ASU led the conversation. John and Dan talked about the history of the Fine Printing and Book Arts Program at ASU and also shared a lot of interesting historical references to the art of fine printing.
There were several other exhibiting artists in attendance, including Karla Elling from Mummy Mountain Press, Linda Smith from Picnic Press and current student, Rosalind Shipley along with ASU alumni, Peter Bugg.

WORD UP: artists using language/Abstracted by J Barry Thomson






The opening reception for WORD UP: artists using language and Abstracted by J Barry Thomson kicked off our fall season programming block of Art & Language.
In the galleries you'll find so much interesting work, plan to stay for at least an hour. In additional to three galleries full of a variety of media, you can come into the east gallery and spend some time looking at-and yes- handling, a wide variety of artists' books.
Here's a link to our facebook photo album where you can see images of the opening and selected pieces from the exhibitions.

Please visit our website to look at our fall line-up of classes, lectures, workshops and MORE!

No Strangers: The Art Intersection Creative Community

“I know there is strength in the differences between us. I know there is comfort,
where we overlap.”
―Ani DiFranco








The doors of Art Intersection opened in January of 2011 with a belief that in order for human creativity to flourish - it being perhaps one of our most important saving graces – nourishment is required on many fronts. In order to support the creative spirit of all those individuals within physical range of its facilities and programming, a well-equipped and well-staffed facility was made available to any and to all who wanted to engage in further developing their own creativity. This exhibition celebrates a very special part of our growing community, our members, staff, and faculty.With our membership, we wanted to create a lively atmosphere for interesting dialogue and networking, a place to share work, and to learn not only from the stellar faculty and staff but also from each other. Through group critiques, one on ones with our curator and special member events we have begun forging a true creative community.
The staff and faculty of Art Intersection are also committed artists and feel honored to have their work intersecting with the work of the members in this inaugural exhibition devoted to learning, creating, and sharing. For more images visit our Facebook page.

The Card as Art



Participants in last evening's workshop, The Card as Art, enjoyed learning several new methods for making cards that are truly unique works of art. Working with gorgeous papers, learning new ways to up-cycle old calendars, greetings cards and ephemera, and learning to make custom envelopes were among the many approaches to creating handmade cards and tags.
Each participant went home with several finished cards and a whole lot of new ideas to make more at home.
We plan to offer more opportunities to create cards in the near future!

The Art of Presentation at Art Intersection

Saturday we hosted another successful, hands-on mat cutting workshop where everyone mounted and matted an image using archival methods. Mystery of mat cutting revealed.
Using the 60" mat cutter and the straight cutter we cut a sheet of 32"x40" mat board to 11"x14" finished size. After a little math we cut a beveled opening to fit the 8"x10" image. Everyone went away ready to save money and expand their presentation creativity by cutting their own mats and mounting using archival methods.

Wearable Art at Art Intersection


Guest artist, Elise Deringer, was back at Art Intersection to show us how to create a one of a kind silk scarf using a photographic solution called cyanotype. The participants used live botanicals, objects, photographs and cut paper to create their own individual designs. The results were absolutely gorgeous! To see more images visit our facebook page.
