    I was speaking with Melody Bostick Sullivan and she said that this year's Platypus is scheduled for 1:00pm July 3, 2004.

    Also the 2005 APIS will be July 7, 8, 9. ... Melody mentioned they are hoping to have more demonstrations than past symposiums.

    I'm sure the Platypus will be happy.

    Thinly sliced pan-seared free-range platypus with a lime-chili aioli garnished with fiddlehead ferns on a 7 grain toasted roll is not to be missed!

    Darn I was hoping the platypus was for dessert I've never tried Platy...pie.

    Platypus..... Platinum Yearly Party Under the Stars ..... Hosted by B&S...... where I believe a small gathering of Pt/Pd printers show prints and discuss things Platinum.

    Okay. seriously now. Platypus is held in Santa Fe at Melody and Richard's house every other year whenever APIS is overseas. For anyone doing alt-process stuff, it may be one of the best informal get togethers you can attend. The format usually involves people showing their work on one of two tables. You spread your work out, say a few words about what the heck you are trying to do, and then people mill around looking at it. You don't have to even present anything if you are shy. The range of people presenting work goes from rank beginners to old masters.

    It is a great place to meet other people doing this sort of work. You will be able to gauge the quality level of your work against some of the best printers around. In other areas, people are visiting, trading tips and drinking beer. It generally goes from 1:00 Pm to maybe 6:00 or 7:00, at which point people generally drift out with new friends and go somewhere to eat. I cannot emphasize how fun, informative and low-key the whole event is. If you are interested in alt-process printing, it is a great resource.

    Clay,

    6:00/7:00, back at some of the early Platypus parties we got sent home at 3:00 or 4:00. I think at one time Melody came out to check if we needed any thing else, and went back to bed. Ah the good old days. Now it is just the old days. Out of this party has come some very good things and some lasting friendships, and two great portfolios of work,. It has been well over 20 years of great parties. The ones in Van Nays would start on thursday/friday and end on the tuesday after MoMomerialay. To bad I will be stuck in the classroom, we will have to see all of you in SF/APIS 2005. How about some kind of print frame/torch carrying thing. May be not.
