PAL & LAA’s March 2024 General Meeting

Monday, March 11, 2024 at 7:30pm 

Guest Artist: Tony Molatore, Owner of Berkeley Giclee

All About Fine Art Printing!

Hosted by the Pleasanton Art League.

Venue: Cultural Arts Building, 4477 Black Avenue, Pleasanton

Tony Molatore at Berkeley Giclee

Tony Molatore is the owner of Berkeley Giclee, one of oldest artwork repro services in the Bay Area. Tony first learned darkroom procedure from his dad as a child. He worked in pro labs in San Francisco in the 1980s and started his own business in the 90s. He feels fortunate to have bridged the analog to digital workflow because the older tradition helps you to see and understand color theory which is most useful in today’s printing. Tony is a Cal Grad, and has a Masters Degree from Davis.

Tony will offer a brief history of Giclee printing, much of which is true, discuss the truth and myth color calibration, and why your ipad files always print dark.   There  will be  samples of prints on watercolor paper, canvas and wood panels to look at. He will also offer a demo of canvas stretching techniques and give away discount offers.

Get to know all about your fine art printing needs on March 11! You don’t want to miss this! WEBSITE: www.berkeleygiclee.com

This Meeting is in-person only, free and open to the public.
