I'm not seeing the 'create new page' link on the main wiki page. Is it there for everyone? If I can get in there I'll start updating the fine art section, since I'm a PDF preview hoarder.

Doh! I was looking for a hypertext link rather than a button and just assumed that was a search field. Thanks!

This is all great news especially the print database update. Would love to see this forum thrive again.

So it has been awhile, and I thought I would leak a few pictures here before everyone else sees them.

The first is an element from an installation that Shepard will do in SC.

The second is the next letterpress print that just came in to the studio. It is really beautiful in person. The edges still need to be deckled, these are literally hot off the press! Imag
Hope you have a great weekend!

That letterpress is fantastic. It totally appeals to my love of the 90s stuff. I hope the run is big enough that I will have a chance to get one. I had a line on one from 96 once but failed to land it.

I love it!

No comments on this image?

I think it's very relevant to what's going on in the High street with the proliferation of £1 stores everywhere and likes of Primark stores (coming to America very soon) that have clothes so cheap that they become literally wear-once-throw-away , it's changing everybody's touchstone of value ....THEY still want to earn £500 a week , but expect every one else to want to exist on £100 , no wonder small manufacturing businesses can't exist anymore.

Exactly what stuckeyc37 said is what keeps this place alive.
I don't like getting information like this from another art forum.

It's kinda like my own little validation ticket, or "rock n roll t-shirt", it proves that I was there, I saw it first (here) and didn't get it second hand from someones post on EB that got it from a twitter feed. :wink:
