Twin Cities artist Justin Terlecki keeps travel journals. Some of his travel drawings have inspired new prints. His newest print “Bandra, Mumbai” (which appears at the end of this post) and five other prints from the last three years will be displayed at the Highpoint Center for Printmaking Cooperative Exhibition. The opening is July 31, from 7 to 9 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

Justin is one of the working artists on the sales staff at Wet Paint. He has helpful suggestions and information for artists shopping in the store, because he works with the materials sold there. While I knew that he made wonderful prints, I first learned that Justin kept travel journals when I happened to walk into Wet Paint one day shortly after he returned from a trip—I got to see the travel journal in person. Few things are as enjoyable as looking through someone’s travel journal, seeing the sights through the artist's editing eye.
