Work by Paul Vincent BernardPaul Vincent Bernard by Shawn Rossiter

We caught up with printmaker Paul Vincent Bernard in his Poor Yorick studio a couple days after he returned from Fresno, California with his new floor-model lithography press. He found it on eBay and braved California gas prices to drive it back to Salt Lake because it will allow him to print his large lithography work more easily. He will be keeping his old press for monotype prints and for printing etching and relief prints; which means he will have to do some careful rearranging to fit both in his studio, which is already packed with art, supplies, books, wine, a stereo, a computer, and some curious odds and ends.

You'll be able to see what kind of work Bernard gets out of both presses at his upcoming exhibition at Tanner Frames, which opens July 18 during Gallery Stroll.

What hangs above your mantel?

I do not have a mantel in my place, but my favorite wall adornment are two small prints from Pont Aven in France. They depict women at the village well and a village square.

What is your favorite building in Utah?

The State Capitol building. It is one of the most impressive capitols in the United States and I'm delighted to see it restored to the original plan.

What is the most memorable exhibit you've seen recently?

I just returned from France and the most recent memorable exhibit was the Marie Antoinette exhibit at the Palais Royale. But I also love the Minerva Teichert exhibit in the BYU Museum of Art.
