I just had the opportunity to view "foil stamping" as a new printmaking
process - adapted from commercial graphics into fine art applications.
Virginia Myers at the University of Iowa has pioneered the aesthetic
and technical research for foil stamping, and designed and patented the
printmaking equipment to allow artists to utilize this process without
the cumbersome, heavy equipment of commercial graphics. Foil stamping
offers an incredible palette of reflectives, pigments and specialty foils
including holograms, which can be combined with traditional printmaking
processes for quite unusual textures and effects.

I would like to share with you the information she gave me on a
traveling exhbition of original prints from The University of Iowa which
is available for showings up to six weeks for $100 plus the cost of shipping
two crates to the next location (550 lbs). Every attempt is made to
schedule the showings for mimimal distance between groups.

The exhibition includes 37 foil stamped prints mounted in 28 metal section
frames with white rag mats and covered with plexiglas.
The average frame size is 18 x 24". A slot for each
print in the crates makes the packing and unpacking easy and simple.
Total insurance value is $8,000.

If anyone is interested, the show is available for the next two years
