Squeegeerma — Squeegeerama was conceived as an annual week-long, deep-dive adventure for screen printers to learn and play with advanced production methods using an array of equipment. It was an opportunity for a small group of attendees, the staff at Wachiay Studio, and a guest artist to demonstrate their unique process, and stretch their squeegee wings. Five days to learn from each other, experiment, and try things they normally wouldn’t at their ‘regular’ work. The local studio is a well-equipped leader in water-based production of both flat-stock and textile materials, and known worldwide for its educational programs.

Each year the guest artists, participants, and staff have produced some amazing artworks. This installation at CVAG presents a selection of the prints completed by the guest artists, as well as the attendees.

Dan Stiles was the guest artist for Squeegeerama 2022. He provided an artist talk at CVAG on July 28.
