Selling like Hotcakes

Saturday's pancake breakfast was bustling, complete with blueberry pancakes, fruit, juice and plenty of hot coffee. Many pancakers stuck around to create a couple of holiday cards in the screenprint area.

Pancakes, please?

When Howard County school contacted us and asked us if we were interested in partnering with them to help their students produce large scale woodblock prints, based on the theme of Dia de los Muertos, we said "great!" When they asked if they could be printed via steamroller
in our parking lot we enthusiastically replied "Count us in!"
Here are some photos of the fun that took place last Saturday.


Elizabeth's work looks at home at Tryst
Pyramid Atlantic regular Elizabeth Graeber celebrated her solo show at Tryst in Adams Morgan on December 8. The homey venue is a natural backdrop for Elizabeth's watercolors of everyday items like poodles, chairs, birds and asparagus. Hung salon-style on warm walls, the paintings are deceptively simple. Harkening Maira Kallman, Graeber animates her subjects with an ironic wit—particularly apparent  in the angry reindeer trophy above the mantle. Elizabeth hopes "all the work will sell". This show is a must-see. Bring your laptop and stay a while.

MAKE + TAKE: Setup

All hands were on deck to prepare for the wildly popular first annual "MAKE + TAKE" Dec. 3rd DIY evening at Pyramid. The event drew a huge crowd who were treated to festive drinks, homebaked cookies, hot hors d'oeuvres while encouraged to try out the different disciplines in each studio. The fabulous and famous letterpress calendar, "Drink Me" beverage book and Pyramid sketchbook went like hotcakes. Kudos to all who helped plan and donate to the cause.
