Being “on the circuit” selling art full time is an interesting life. All of us have loads of gear; tents, portable walls and pedestals, directors chairs, and a large van to pack it all in. Dodge Sprinters, Ford Cargo Vans and a whole medley of Minivans drive in and out of cities full of artists and their gear. We set up in streets, fields, courtyards, and shopping plazas. The show usually goes on regardless of hail, hurricanes, downpours, and sweltering heat.

This year I heard a number of stories from the midwest of tents blowing away. During the heat wave in July artists were standing in buckets of ice water to keep cool. My booth flooded in Pennsylvania due to hurricane Irene. There are times where I stand in the rain for days and barely make back my booth cost, when I miss my partner and my poodle, or my tire blows out on the journey. Even so, it is encouraging when somebody purchases something from me and says that they have never bought art before or when a newly married couple tells me they are going to make art a part of their lives. I know I don't have to wake up in the morning and drive to a job that I don't care about, and everything I do for my business will continue to pay off, I just have to keep showing up. A colleague once said, “being your own boss = priceless.”

 I am an advocate for people who want to try art festivals to get out there and do it! It is not just grandma's painted jars and grandpa's whittled ducks for sale, there is some truly wonderful work.  If there is a festival in your town, appreciate the vendors on the street and think about the path (or super highway) they took to make it easy for you to see their wares.

Social Justice

Social Justice

Opening Reception Fri, Sep. 2, 5-8pm
Sep. 2 - Sep. 28

This exhibition is a reflection and a statement about current social justice issues and events on a local, national, and international level. The topics of social justice are vast: racism, classicism, sexuality, poverty, etc. Submitted work may be any technique of printmaking: narrative, abstraction, figurative, and conceptual. This art serves to educate and sensitize the viewer to various issues while conveying an underlying philosophy to the commitment to social justice, humanism, and collective responsibility. Expressions of strength, pain, humor, as well as defiance used by the artist reflect not only their diverse personal views and opinions, but also are used to facilitate awareness and promote dialogue.  Daumier, Kathe Kollwitz, Goya, Sue Coe, ASARO, The Beehive Collective, John Hitchcock, and Eric Avery serve as good examples of artists whose work continues in the long tradition of social justice advocacy. We encourage submissions using all forms of printmaking techniques.

Juror Dusty Herbig
First, I would like to thank the committee at the Ink Shop, for inviting me to select work for this exhibition. Social Justice is a particularly poignant subject for the title of a national exhibition in today’s complicated sociopolitical climate. Given the constant tide of fresh and recurring subject matter for activist artists to explore, the opportunity to select work for this exhibition should be a diagrammatic experience of current issues.

During a recent lecture by a prominent social activist, I was empowered, hearing references and explanations to the term stability, and instability on numerous occasions. This terminology describing subtle interpretation of foreign policy, and its definitions, resonated with me and will certainly find its way into future creative research and academic expectations.

This recent experience and my invitation to jury this exhibition were serendipitous and rejuvenated the rigor in my activist/artistic practice.  With fresh perspective about what sociopolitical priorities might be, I look forward to seeing what the artists of 2011 have to say about our world, both good and bad.

Dusty Herbig is an Assistant Professor of Art, and the Director of Lake Effect Editions at Syracuse University, where he teaches lithography, intaglio, serigraphy, relief, digital printmaking, letterpress, and all levels of advanced and graduate print courses. Herbig earned an MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2002, and his BFA from Fort Hays State University, in Hays, KS in 1996.

Herbig exhibits nationally, participating in juried exhibitions from Los Angeles to Miami to New York City, and internationally, including shows in Canada, Spain, Taiwan, Brazil, Germany, South Korea, Scotland, Pakistan, China, Argentina, Japan, and Poland. His socially provocative work is in the permanent collections of many institutions, including: The Minneapolis Institute of the Arts, KUMU: The Art Museum of Estonia, Spencer Museum of Art in Lawrence, KS, The Hunterdon Museum of Art, Hunterdon, NJ The Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, CA, Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, NYC, among others. He currently lives and works in Syracuse, NY.                  View Herbig’s work.

Cristina de los Santos & Masha Ryskin: Cuts, Fragments & Collages

Masha Ryskin Igloo

Masha Ryskin is a Russian born artist currently based in Rochester, NY and Providence, RI. She received a classical art education in Moscow, Russia, followed by a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from the University of Michigan.

She uses a variety of media, including drawing and painting, printmaking, installation, and fibers. Her work is concerned with landscape and its elements as a metaphor for memory, history, and passage of time.

Masha's work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. She has participated in a number of artist residencies, both in the United States and abroad. She is a recipient of many grants and fellowships, including a Fulbright grant to Norway.

"A sense of place and belonging is increasingly important to me, especially since my immigration from the Soviet Union. As a result, my work explores landscape and its elements through direct experience of the environment around me. I take bits and pieces of my surroundings and assemble them into imaginary environments.  The work investigates the concepts of history, personal memories and everyday rituals, as well as identity and assimilation.

I am interested in the human interaction with nature evidenced by the traces of our presence left in the landscape. My work directs attention to footprints, stains, and other overlooked elements that speak of the temporal quality of the human experience. The mundane materials, such as tea bags, recycled fabric, tea and coffee, serve as records of our daily activities and gatherings, while the fragmented quality of the work alludes to the constant shifts that occur in memory and history."


Cristina de los Santos Quick Sand

With each piece I intend to push drawing to its limits.  Paper is used as a substrate because it is adaptable to varying techniques and I can be generous with scale.  I create disruption and order with my drawings.  A little disorder is always left behind ending with off-kilter or twisted compositions.


It is my hope that the viewer is able to recognize an outside force imposing itself on the drawing, like a strong wind, or a rush of water through the combination of marks and forms.  Sometimes, I physically tear apart the drawing to add a more tangible destructive layer.  The drawings are meant to operate autonomously, yet seen together, they create an effect of a throbbing cadence as forms seem to quiver off the walls and paper.
