Print Workshop Aids Artists

By JAMES LEWIN

World Zionist Press Service

JERUSALEM — Located
in an old stone building,
built by the Turks and re-
novated by the group of
young artisans and appren-
tices under the direction of
Arik Kilemnik, the
Jerusalem Print Workshop
is a unique institution es-
tablished to serve the fine
arts in Israel.
Possessing the only press
of its kind in Israel, the
workshop is most definitely
a cut above almost all
foreign competition.
Thanks to Martin Miller, a
patron of the arts from
America, the Jerusalem
Print Workshop is one of the
best equipped artistic
presses in the world.
Most local artists, even
those formerly accustomed
to sending their work to
Europe to be produced, use
the facilities and services of
the workshop. Famous
foreign artists like Calder
and Lichtenstein have also
paid the workshop the
greatest possible compli-
ment by sending their
works to be printed there.
Founded in 1974, the ven-
ture has steadily pro-
gressed, despite persistent
economic problems and an
ongoing struggle for recog-
nition by the non-artistic
establishment.
Most facilities for artistic
print-making are confined
to university workshops,
which are closed to the gen-
eral public. Where commer-
cial print workshops do
exist, they specialize exclu-
sively in only one technique
such as silk-screening.
The Jerusalem Print
Workshop, however, offers
the possibility of all forms of
printing — etching, lithog-
raphy, screen printing and
wood-cuts — under one roof.
The Jerusalem Print
Workshop prides itself on
its highly organized arc-
hives which contain a
catalogue of every series of
prints produced. Thus, the
exact date, condition and
value of any given print
published by the workshop

can be verified. The work-
shop also supports special
research projects into every
aspect and procedure of the
finished print, guarante-
eing the top quality possi-
ble.
People from all around
the world come to take ad-
vantage of the facilities of
the workshop. While most of
the prints are commissioned
by the artists and produced
by the workshop team, indi-
vidual artists may choose to
rent the equipment and
space provided by the work-
shop to produce prints
entirely of their own crea-
tion.
The biggest problem of
the workshop, according to
director Kilemnik, is the
struggle with bureauccracy
to get support for this ven-
ture. The basic problem is
that the typical adminis-
trator expects projects to
make money, while the
workshop, at present, con-
sistently brings in one-third
less than its operating costs.
Thus, every six months or
so, there is a funding crisis.

in the workshop was do-
nated by Miller; another of
the cast-iron presses was re-
covered, by lucky coinci-
dence, in a state of total neg-
lect from a kibutz in the
Negev.
On its second floor, the
workshop runs a gallery of
its own work. On display
and for sale are the prints of
some of the top names in Is-
raeli art including Castel,
Tumarkin, Kadishman,
Lifschitz and others. In
addition, work done at the
Jerusalem Print Workshop
is on prominent display in
the Israel Museum and
many other halls of culture.

Wedding Custom
Traced to Bible

It is customary for two
guides to accompany the
groom, and in turn the
-bride, leading them up to
and under the marriage
canopy (hupa).
Some claim that this is
done because it is stated
that two angels (Michael
and Gabriel) acted as guides
for Adam when he came to-
gether with Eve (i.e. in the
first human marriage).
Every Jewish marriage is
thus modeled after the
union of Adam and Eve
which took place in the
Paradise of Eden.
It is also claimed that a
groom and his bride are con-
sidered to be royalty and-
royal figures always have
attendants who accompany
them (Tashbatz).
