Diane Cutter, Corrales, NM USA

10 x 10 in, linoleum, Charbonel, etching, noir de carbone on Papier Canal, Papeterie Saint-Arnand, Montereal, mounted on Strathmore drewing paper, edition 28. There are a lot of birds that live in our cottonwood tree, a veritable community of different types… Hummingbirds, crows, finches. The only thing that disturbs them is when the hawk comes to hang out in the birdbath. As a group, they all disappear. After a day or two, the hawk leaves and all the birds return to their peaceful community.

Maria Arango Diener, Las Vegas, NV USA

10 x 10 in, cherry, Gamblin & Daniel Smith on Daphne handmade, edition 100. “For all those born beneath an angry star, Lest we forget how fragile we are”. Those lyrics are from a Sting song, later I heard it by Jesse Cook. I am a loner and enjoy solitude but time and again I am reminded how very much I depend on and cherish connections with friends and family, however fragile they may be. The image is a revisit of an early large print with some modifications … and a new tiny block of course.

Anthony DiMichele, Friday Harbor, WA USA

10 x 10 in, cherry, Akua liquid pigment on Rives BFK, edition 24. Being new to woodblock printmaking and I\’ve been focusing on woodblock monoprints. I used the same carved block, rotated the image and varied the color with each printing.

Bea Gold, Encinitas, CA USA
Working Together

10 x 10 in, shina plywood, sumi on nishinouchi, edition 50. Enjoyable black and white print – a change from color and white line.

Wanda Hemmings, Cambridgeshire, UK

10 x 10 in, linoleum, Caligo Safewash Relief on chine colle on road atlas pages and 300gsm paper, edition 28. I found this topic really challenging – but after much thought and internet browsing I decided that one of the things that Unity was about was the connections that bind us together – so my print is \”islands\” connected by pathways printed on pages from a road atlas of the UK.

Your Pronouns?

10 x 10 in, linoleum, Gamlin oil-based block-printing inks on Stonehenge, edition 28. A person might ask what pronouns have to do with unity. It comes down to respecting other human beings for who they are. Unity in a community can only be built through honest acceptance of the differences of others, which means using people\’s preferred pronouns. Ask!
