After arrival at Saint Mary's Art Center, myself and another printmaker set up the printing area, etching press and drying rack. The former morgue was devoid of windows, but the long sink turned out to be a very useful inking and paper soaking area.
Towards the evening I took a walk along some nearby trails to take in the scenery and enjoy the solitude. Most of the other artists were due a day later, so the building was very quiet other than the creaking of the old wooden floor boards. As far as I could tell, the ghosts had not noticed our arrival yet.
