Aperture Foundation
Aperture’s inspiration can be found in the early twentieth century, in Alfred Stieglitz’s famed "laboratory centers" and his influential publication, Camera Work. It was Stieglitz and such associates as Edward Steichen and Paul Strand who promoted photography as a new and powerful medium of artistic expression. For the first half of the century, because Stieglitz’s galleries were small and his periodical short-lived, there were only modest opportunities for the masterworks of an extraordinary generation of European and American photographers to reach the public. Reflecting on Alfred Stieglitz’s accomplishments, Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Barbara Morgan, Minor White, together with historian Beaumont Newhall, and writer Nancy Newhall, created a new periodical. Aperture's unique purpose includes providing access to the achievements of the medium's past masters and to the ongoing contributions of contemporary photographers, including those artists who draw image and inspiration from photography as they probe newly emerging frontiers of communication. In 2005, Aperture’s three-thousand-square-foot gallery opened in New York’s Chelsea art district. Since then, Aperture has exhibited an eclectic and critically acclaimed array of shows.

I wish the all the álcohol ink companies would narrow the bottle openings. They are way TOO big! It gives you little control. Any chance a company can come up with a more needle-nosed opening?

I'm not a stencil artist but a silversmith. I have several of the 1" brushes, and they are perfect for sweeping my bench. I use the brushes to sweep the silver and gold filings off my bench, and they do a superb job of cleaning loose metal bits off my projects. I don't like to use any other brushes. I use the smaller ones ( the 1/2" and 3/8") for gently cleaning wax models and jewelry in progress. These brushes have greater control, stiffness and yet pliable bristles that does the job very well. I'm sticking with these brushes for a very long time.

I've been using Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph Technical Pens since 1969. My aunt bought me my first set when I was 12 and I have used them daily ever since. I love the fact that I can mix my ink colors to match my watercolor or my wardrobe and use "Pelikan Drawing Ink A" almost exclusively. Though the inks made by Koh-I-Noor and Winsor Newton are satisfactory. If you are a beginner, I would NOT recommend purchasing anything smaller than an 0 (0.35 mm). Even as a professional I find cleaning a 4x0 to be a challenge. I work most often with a 2x0, and find them to produce the smoothest flow, if kept clean.
