The Center for Contemporary Printmaking’s Associate Printer, Paul DeRuvo, has been awarded a 6-week artist in residence in Sigmaringen, Germany at the Ateliers im Alter Schlachthof. Paul will be participating in their Werkaufenthalte, or Work-Stay program making etchings, and monotypes. The Alter Schlachthof, is a complex of buildings constructed in 1884, and originally served as a slaughterhouse. The art studios in the renovated building were finished in 1990, and have since attracted international visual and performing artists. The complex offers living, studio and exhibition spaces. The building also plays host to several music and theater programs.
While there, Paul will be collaborating with Eckhard Froeschlin. Eckhard visited CCP in March of 2015, to offer a letterpress workshop and spend a week in the Helen Frankenthaler Printmaking Cottage. Paul will be creating work to contribute to an artist book publication Eckhard is creating based on the poems of American poet Robert Creeley. Paul will be away until the beginning of May. Wish him luck…and stay tuned for updates from Germany!
