It’s official! Tim Pauszek is joining the team as our new Press Studio Manager for the next 12 months. Congratulations Tim - we’re very excited to have you! Some of our members have already met Tim when undertaking his plate lithography weekend workshop back in February but now we’ve adopted him as our own. Pauszek is a Western New York native, born and raised a stone’s throw away from Great Lake Erie in the Rust Belt town of Dunkirk, NY. He completed his bachelor’s degree at Alfred University in chemistry and interdisciplinary art and was employed there as the 2D technician in Drawing, Painting, Photography and Printmaking. Most recently he has been working as part of the collaborative print workshop at Cicada Press UNSW in Sydney. He is a printmaker, husband, and rumour has it he has a list of witty endings for artist bios saved in his phone. Make sure you say hi and introduce yourself as he gets started in the studios next week!

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE - ISOBEL RAYSON

Welcome to Megalo Isobel Rayson! 
Isobel is the first Megalo Artist in residence this year and we're so pleased to have her in the studios.

Isobel is an emerging artist based in Canberra, Australia. Since graduating from the Sculpture workshop at the ANU School of Art and Design in 2014 she has exhibited in a number of group exhibitions, undertaken residencies and held several solo exhibitions. Isobel often works with woodcut substrates in her practice but is looking forward to exploring print in the Press Studio. She has already discovered the joy of embossing in the studio and is busily creating some impressive works. You can see more of Isobel's artwork at http://www.isobelrayson.com/
