Dan Welden, like artists throughout the ages, has been influenced by forms of landscape from Norway, Peru, New Zealand, and Arizona, as well as the beautiful motifs of the East End of Long Island.
Dan pioneered the nontoxic Solarplate printmaking process. He will talk about, and demonstrate, how the inspiration of nature is translated into a two-dimensional work on paper.
Dan spent much of his early art career promoting healthier and safer printmaking, which eventually led him to develop the Solarplate technique. This process; though simpler, more spontaneous, and more economical than traditional etching; incorporates a broader range of imagery than any other printmaking medium and includes drawings, photographs, and paintings.
