About the Residency Host and Juror, Thomas Wojak:
Thomas Wojak is a master printer, artist and Professor Emeritus (CCA) who founded The W.O.R.K.S, a screen printing studio, in 1972 in San Francisco. The studio specializes in limited edition work for local, national and international artists, and works extensively with the Bay Area design and technology communities. Recent projects with Apple and Google have been of particular note. Over the years, his prints in the field have been honored by both the San Francisco Art Directors Guild and the New York Art Directors Association. Projects include editions for the Estate of Jerry Garcia, prints and mixed media pieces for artists such as Carrie Mae Weems, Mayumi Oda, Primo Angeli, Larry Sultan, Steve Wolfe, Nance O’Banion, Charles Hobson, Ester Hernandez, James Gobel and work with a group of Berlin painters. The graphic elements for Francis Ford Coppola’s winery and movie museum in the Napa Valley, as well as screen printed pieces for the Alcatraz Island renovations, Contemporary Jewish Museum and SFMOMA were significant projects.
Thomas relocated his studio and home to historic downtown Vallejo, California, in 2002. His own work, consisting of print and mixed media pieces, deals with “creating a present from the fragments of the past” and has been exhibited extensively locally, nationally and internationally. He has participated in a broad cross section of group and invitational shows, as well as spearheading many local curatorial projects, in particular a series of shows entitled: Paper Cuts, featuring work from all graduate programs in the Bay Area doing works on paper. A recent show at the Jen Tough Gallery, (Vallejo/Benicia) entitled CA inked featured many artists from the California Society of Printmakers.
