Russell Richards to teach the Art of Etching at McGuffey Art Center

An email from artist Russell U. Richards dated Thursday, 18 March 2010 reads as follows:

Hello everybody,

It's been a while since I've updated my website, as I am in the process of redesigning it, so have been a little lax on updates. But I wanted to tell you about my upcoming printmaking class at McGuffey Art Center in Charlottesville VA.:

The Art of Etching
Thursdays 6-7:30 pm,
Starting April 1, for eight weeks

Students will create an edition of black and white etchings under the guidance of an expert printmaker. No printmaking experience necessary. Classes will be held in Studio 26 at the McGuffey Art Center in Charlottesville VA. For adults and mature teens.

Cost of class: $225, materials included
Teacher: Russell U. Richards
(434) 825-0557

To register, fill out a class registration form at the McGuffey Art Center, or call (434) 295-7973.

Note: there will be additional days and evenings during the week when I will be working in the studio, that students may come by and work. This will be as my schedule allows. Also I'll demonstrate my four-color process, and am open to helping students explore other intaglio techniques. You'll get a lot of instruction for the money, and at least one full edition of etchings, by the end of eight weeks!

Russell U. Richards

My "Spring Affair" Black Party 2010 Weekend Mix

A definate tribute to Frank G whose birthday is 20 March and to Robert Mapplethorpe whose image of me was featured on the 1987 Black Party poster invitation, my March 2010 "Spring Affair" dance mix features a 70's and 80's disco / gay circuit tracklist of songs that Frank, friends and I danced to during the early years of The Saint when it was located at the old Fillmore East.

Celebrating this weekend's Saint At Large Rites XXXI: The Black Party 2010 event in NYC as well Spring Equinox, click the cd cover to listen to and/or download the March 2010 "Spring Affair" music mix podcast.

Here are my March 2009 "Rise Above" Black Party mix and photo montage of my Some Hands photography exhibit from the 2006 Black Party event.
