It's finally spring and Wayzgoose time again!! The weather forecast says it will be nice out so go for a nice drive and come visit the Grimsby 'Goose! This year it is the 37th Wayzgoose. I've been doing them for over 25 years now...WHAT?!?! How old am I?
My first Wayzgoose was when I was in 2nd year printmaking at OCA. My relief instructor, the wonderful Bill Poole, was the man behind the Grimsby 'Goose and the one who encouraged me to go. I remember cramming myself into George Walkers little Bug with Michelle, Frederica Tomas of Utility Grade and David Keyes for the drive to Grimsby. Was it really that long ago?

My family went to Florida during the March break. When he heard I was heading to Florida to visit my sister Don Black put me in touch with Bridget Elmer, the studio coordinator of the Ringling College Letterpress and Book Arts Centre at the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota! Bridget was kind enough to make time to meet me one morning at the centre which is the new home of Hal and Judilee Sterne's old letterpress studio. Bridget also invited me to attend the Ned Drew lecture and reception that was happening the following night and to drop in on his workshop in the RCLBAC the day after that! Ned Drew is a Graphic Designer. He is the head of the Graphic Design Program at Rutgers and Professor part-time at the Pratt Institute. He is also a lover of type and letterpress and incorporates letterpress into his personal work!
