Several years ago I participated in a printmaking project, Prints of the Periodic Table of Elements. Organized by Jenn Schmitt of Massachusetts.
All of the prints are now on exhibit in Philadelphia at the Chemical Heritage Foundation: "Elemental Matters: Artists Imagine Chemistry."
Wish I could go!
Here's a link to some photos she took of the exhibit.
I requested and was granted element 42 Molybdenum.
Those of you who know me well will know why I picked this one. It was irresistible to me for several reasons and I'm so pleased I was able to represent it.
This is a linoleum cut, hand tinted. I only made a few and sent the best one to Jenn.
