Coming soon: updates! I have a backlog of images to edit and upload.
This coming Sunday, April 15th, there will be an exhibition of the N.E.A. grant artists work at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking.
The workshop was a success. Several persons learned more about lithography!
If anyone would like to have works printed or would like to schedule a workshop/demonstration please contact me with your information.
I will be teaching a three-day workshop this coming weekend at the CCP titled "Planographic Printing: A Crash Course on Aluminum Plate Lithography". I am hoping it goes well.
Been awhile since I updated. Tim's works have been printed and signed, we had another visiting artist in the interim, Amy Park. I am currently in the process of editioning the several large intaglio plates from this project.
Artist Tim Clifford is now in residence. We have been working on Tim's first lithographs. While we are still in the experimental stage, Tim has adjusted to the medium well and is quickly learning that sometimes lithography happens. It could happen to you.
Thanks to the assistance of Nomi Silverman, Gladys and I were able to get the plates to an acceptable state. There are now signed B.A.T. prints at the CCP and we have agreed on paper and now all I have to do is put ink on paper. Working with Gladys was a privilege and a pleasure and I look forward to seeing her works in the future.
I have returned to the North-Eastern portion of the country. Currently I am waiting for furniture and other possessions to arrive via truck.
Additionally, I have the privilege of working with artist Gladys Triana at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, CT. We have a series of intaglio plates to make and edition as well as some mono-print/collage projects on the side.
If anyone has not procured their purchases, the Islander will be open tomorrow as we finish the uninstallation of Ross Turner's show, which was phenomenal.
Hope to see everyone tonight at the Islander Art Gallery. Additionally, I will have prints in the cultural exchange exhibition 'Works on Paper', featuring contemporary American and Romanian printmakers. The show will be on display in Pearl River, NY at the Blue Hill Art & Cultural Center, May 11th through November 4th 2017 and at the Muzeul National al Hartilor si Carti Vechi in Bucharest, Romania, July 27th through September 3rd 2017. If you happen to be in either area, please take a look!
Thesis exhibition, 'The Cabinet of Renwick Ambrose Matheton: An Exhibition of Artifacts' is now open to the public! Images coming soon.

Some images added to the portfolio. Once I get some better photos of my 3-d works I will update those
as well. The ones that are up now are essentially functioning as place-holders.
New stuff coming out of the soda-kiln today. The largest 'pile' yet is in there and it should be interesting.
My fellow MFA candidate Dan Heskamp has his thesis exhibition on Thursday evening at the Weil Gallery at Texas A&M University Corpus Christi. Additionally, the annual Ink Slinger's Ball is coming up this Friday at the House of Rock downtown. Big finish to a long semester!
My fellow MFA candidate, Paul Seeman, is having a reception tonight for his thesis exhibition at the

The Oso Bay Biennial is coming up next week. One of the many events is a show juried by James Victore,
in which three of my prints will be present. The opening reception will be Friday at 5:00pm at the Weil Gallery on campus at TAMUCC. That same Friday is also Art Walk in downtown Corpus Christi, where a bunch of us printmakers will be selling t-shirts which will be printed live in from of the K-Space art gallery. If you happen to be in the area, here is the link to the events schedule for the 2016 Oso Bay Biennial.
Today is the last day before Spring "break" which will be more like hardcore-work-week. I have a pile
of copper to finish and print and a few stones as well. Not to mention rabbits to hide...
The Oso Bay Biennial is fast approaching, I have piles on piles of works in progress, and various other
complicated goings-on. I am also continuing to hide small, soda-fired porcelain rabbits with disheartening
scrolls in their mouths. You may view the process via Instagram, the name being jackoptimus
The semester quickly draws to a close. Almost three weeks before the standard end of a semester
Not a great schedule change for us studio artists being forced to write papers as well as finish
large-scale projects earlier than expected. Images of this business to follow.
Some captions updated on images. I have more things to photograph and even more things
I've uploaded some new images. I will be teaching "Intermediate Prinkmaking: Intro. to Lithography"
in the Fall 2015 semester. Until then, the summer keeps getting hotter.
Ink Slingers has come and gone. Great turnout from all over the print community and more. Got to
see some great prints and meet with some great people. Ink Slinger's 5.5 will likely be taking place
this coming fall semester.
The semester draws towards closing. This coming week we at the TAMUCC printshop will be printing
for artists Aaron Coleman and Harmen Liemburg. The 5th annual Ink Slinger's Ball is Friday, May 5th.
Big weekend comin'!

First day teaching Intro. to Intaglio. Went well, until TAMUCC's power went out in the middle of looking at prints.
Didn't matter though. I demoed plate-prep, drypoint, and proofing in the dark. Because analog is awesome.
Have at you, 2015.

Dia de los Muertos was intense. Around twelve hours of inking blocks for shirts. Fundraising = successful.
Big city-wide events are looming. Dia de los Muertos (November 1st) will have on-site iron pouring,
live wood-block t-shirt printing, and much much more. If you are in the south-Texas area, it's worth

I now reside in Corpus Christi, TX. Also, I need cheap frames. Anyone know a good place in town?
En-route to Texas.
Packing up my life. Movers come on the 8th and then the journey to Texas begins. Will be taking
pictures of some recent prints before stuffing them in a drawer.
Uploaded some recent/semi-recent etchings.
One of my pieces will be in an upcoming exhibition in January 2014;

New image of recent self-portrait added. Moving a fridge today. More images to come - have multiple etchings
in the works and around four more drawings planned for stones
This week will have more images. Visit to TX was good. The print-shop and facilities at Corpus Christi
are fantastic. Living situation is TBA, but that is no surprise.
Heading down to TX to scope things out this week
Updating images sometime this week
Have been busy in the past few weeks; several etching plates in the works as well as some wood
and litho, three small editions printed, one is the start of another series of lithographs
