Platemark is a podcast about art and ideas. Hosted by Ann Shafer and Ben Levy, formerly colleagues at the Baltimore Museum of Art, conversations focus on museums, curating, critiques, value (market/conceptual), the Western canon, and prints and printmaking.

In s3e15, Platemark host Ann Shafer talks with printer Julia D’Amario, who has been the printer at the Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking Residency at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology in Otis, OR, since 2002. Formerly she printed for Pace Prints in New York from 1989–2008. In between all that, since 2008 she has spent summers printing for Jim Dine in his Walla Walla, WA, studio. In fact, Dine lists Julia among his favorite printers—and he has worked with many, many printers across the world. If that weren’t enough, Julia is set to open her home shop to artists in the near future.

In this episode, Julia, whose specialty is intaglio prints, relates her early experience at the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Studio, where she met future Pace Prints colleague and Platemark guest Bill Hall. She tells us about favorite projects at Pace and Sitka, working with Jim Dine, and her love of prints and printmaking.
