Bill Fick at MICA!!!

Department — faculty @ 9:20 pm, Wednesday, September 30th, 2009


North Carolina artist Bill Fick, (http://billfick.com/) is coming to the Dolphin Building for an artist talk and printmaking demo. Bill Fick is a printmaker living and working in Chapel Hill, NC. He received his B.A. from Duke University and his M.F.A. from University of North Carolina-Greensboro. Currently, Fick is the director of Cockeyed Press, which specializes in the production of satirical linocut prints.

Quentin Moseley will open his classroom doors on the 1st floor Dolphin Building on Monday afternoon from 1-3 PM to anyone in the MICA community interested in hearing Bill talk about his work. Then, on Tuesday, Brian Garner will have his Intro to Print Media (thanks freshmen)  classroom open from 9-3 PM for Bill’s artist talk, relief printmaking demo, and a tee-shirt printing extravaganza! There will be a lot of good energy! Come by and take a listen and look. 

Bill will also be talking about his latest project, a printmaking book entitled “Printmaking: A complete guide to materials and process”. It is published by Laurence King in the UK and Prentice Hall in the USA. The book is available on Amazon and was released last summer. He might have a few copies with him for purchase. 



Fick’s work has been exhibited in several solo and group shows nationally and internationally including the Czech Republic, New Zealand, and Finland. In addition, throughout his career, Fick has acted as a visiting artist, artist in residence, and professor to several art schools across the country.
