In 2013/2014, the Forum created a “Road Club” for members interested in taking a day trip each spring and fall to a works on paper venue. Last November, the group travelled to Kalamazoo to visit the studios of Ladislav Hanka and Mary Brodbeck. Both artists provided insightful presentations on their individual printmaking preferences, Lad on his intaglio techniques and Mary on her training in the classic Japanese woodblock method. Despite their different styles and methods, Lad and Mary focus on Michigan landscapes and natural subjects. Now that the harrowing winter has past, a potential gallery and studio crawl in downtown Detroit is in the works for the coming season.
