2011 Anderson Ranch Arts Center Residency

April Vollmer at the Anderson Ranch print studio, 2011

February 2011 residency at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, Colorado. The Ranch sponsors 14 artists ten-week residencies each winter, in ceramics, woodworking, digital art, painting and printmaking.  I am sharing the generous printmaking studio with artist Johanna Mueller. I have had the opportunity to work in the digital media studio, where I have made new digital prints on Gozen Japanese washi to print with woodblock. I have also taken advantage of their woodworking shop to create new work on panels. April Vollmer Ranch residency photos
