Accomplished artist, 85, makes woodcut prints on RiverPoint paper
Read about Aline Feldman, an artist who has been working with woodcut printing for more than 50 years. She recently discovered RiverPoint fine art paper and decided to try it on a new print series she is creating. In an interview, she talked about her decades-long love affair with woodcut printing, her current projects and plans for new work. We featured Feldman's story in a recent e-newsletter (subscribe here) and have the story in our news archive here. (Spoiler alert: She loves the paper.) Feldman's work is in numerous collections including the National Museum of American Art, and her gallery shows have been reviewed by the Washington Post, Baltimore Sun and other publications.
RiverPoint art paper used to produce commemorative broadside
Jason Smith, communications director of the Wisconsin Academy and editor of the organization's quarterly magazine, Wisconsin People & Ideas, wrote a nice piece about some timely help from WIST to print a letter pressed broadside commemorating the term of Wisconsin Poet Laureate Max Garland. The story, "From Blindside to Broadside: Unexpected Collaborations Yield Support for the Wisconsin Poet Laureate," is on the Wisconsin Academy website: http://www.wisconsinacademy.org/magazine/blindside-broadside

Comments from RiverPoint paper customers
I was just really impressed with the papers and I've been experimenting with them. Bravo!
Great surface for screenprinting and lithography.
I love that RiverPoint art paper is a quality and affordable paper, made by students, for students!
Just dropping you a note that I received your sample of RiverPoint paper and am quite impressed with the capabilities it has with watercolor and oil pastel. I have been using Arches watercolor board and paper for 5 plus years now and I believe as your article in the Milwaukee Journal stated, it is comparable to Arches. I just finished two quickies on the samples your department sent me using both watercolor and oil pastel. I am very excited to have this paper available at such a reasonable cost and in my own home state. — Frances Mary Pflanz
