Quarter Sheet Challenge Artist: Heather McMordie
Heather McMordie has accepted the Quarter Sheet challenge for this month. Her prints will be up through the first week of July.
Heather McMordie is an artist and printmaker based in Philadelphia. A graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the University of Pennsylvania, Heather’s artistic practice is informed by geological processes and the scientific method. Using collagraphic, lithographic and relief processes, she exploits multi-plate printmaking to create printed puzzles exploring the dynamic morphology of stone. Her work has been included in exhibits at the Morris Arboretum, the Woodmere Art Museum, and the Governor’s Residence in Harrisburg, PA. Heather was a Fob Holder and Fob Fellow at Second State Press during 2014 and 2015, is an Artist-in-Residence at the Church Studios, and is currently represented by the Old Print Gallery in Washington, DC.
Each month we will feature a new artist in this on going exhibition series. The one requirement? Prints must be quarter sheet prints (15″ x 11″). Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Time to roll up your sleeves and get a little dirty!
SSP will be offering NEW classes in Monotype, Quick & Dirty Screen Printing, and Lithography this spring!

Member Shop Orientations Every Second Thursday
It’s always difficult to start in a new shop and get your printing flow. Different equipment, new people, and where the heck is the tarleton anyway?! SSP wants to make it easier for you to get started and get printing. Every Second Thursday, Second State Press we will hold shop orientations for members. All are welcome to attend each month.
Join us 6-9 PM to get a tour of the shop, have your printing questions answered, and meet other members.
