    An Artist Speaks Season 3 Episode 6 Linda Mitchell

    in Art

    Listen in as host Mike Harris interviews Linda Mitchell, one of Contemporary Art Gallery Online' newest Artist Member.   After studying at Georgia State University and Berry College, Mitchell attended the University of Georgia, receiving a BFA in 1982. While there she developed a special interest in lithography, and she credits printmaking for spurring her feeling for layering images and textures. Mitchell went on to receive an MFA in painting from the University of Georgia in 1990, and an MFA in sculpture from Georgia State University in 1994. Mitchell’s early work focused on animals in multi-panel paintings, featuring cut-out figures, and other dimensional elements. The paintings focused on fluidly painted four-legged creatures in dramatic situations, emphasizing their human qualities. Mitchell turned to sculptural work using exposed wire armatures to create animals forms. She created disturbing scenarios of stalking and predation with multiple figures, some of which were fleshed out with fabric and black sand.

    Lisa King has completed her debut album The Language of Birds. She calls her group The Hot Place. “A patrolman apprehended the boxer Jack Johnson for speeding through his little town. He fined him $100 on the spot. Jack said, “Here’s a $100 for now and another $100 for later, because when I come back through, I’ll be driving just as fast.” The cop said, “Boy, if you keep acting like that, you’re gonna’ go straight to the Hot Place.” I thought, now that is rock and roll, and that’s what I’m going to name my band.” – Lisa King  
    Lisa wrote all of the songs on The Language of Birds. Although inseparable from her Mosrite bass guitar, she also played a roster of instruments, some raised from a steamer trunk of vintage guitars and analog synthesizers; others sprang from her wild antique menagerie like the 1920s Marxophone and the calliope-sounding Portatiev.
    Lisa may have begun The Language of Birds by herself, but she hopes it feels more like a band called The Hot Place. She co-produced the album with The Swimming Pool Q’s’ Jeff Calder, who also played guitar and contributed his multi-instrumental diversity within the album. The Q’s Robert Schmid played drums. Southern Tracks’ Steven Morrison mixed most of the songs and performed on piano, 12-string and vibes. Mike Lynn, formerly of Betty’s Not A Vitamin, was a contributing guitarist, as well. Lisa King has a degree in Fine Arts from Georgia State University, specializing in cutting-edge printmaking disciplines like non-toxic etching and lithography. She’s been a member of the Atlanta bands Unminded and Threshold, and she’s played keyboards with The Swimming Pool Q’s and Glenn Phillips of the Hampton Grease Band.

  • The Evolution Of Map Printing

    in Blogs

    This process was seen to generate a relatively massive amount copies with only one specially created stone. The period of the maps made from this procedure were on a the pad the printed surface was made from. Another drawback is usually that the City & Street Map Prints cannot have all the small print a sophisticated you have. Right after the simple lithographic age was over, the requirement arose to get a more descriptive map. The immediate solution to this predicament arrived in the type of Chromolithography. This process is comparable to lithography but provides for additional detailed results. Map makers made the breakthrough after it absolutely was remarked that it had become very easy to paint for a lithographic image without distorting the caliber of an original. This enabled designers to come up with more refined maps as different stone images may be painted over the other person. This subsequently gave the map more intricate detailing and went quite some distance in ensuring accuracy was achieved. The above mentined examples are certainly laborious and map printers were forced to find ways to cut the job load when executing this important function.
