We encourage members to produce an edition of prints, which are traded, framed by WPA and exhibited annually. Each year WPA members choose a theme and define parameters of the trade portfolio. Members exchange experiences of pulling an edition, as well as receive a collection of prints. We try to subsidize press time for editions or connect printmaker with someone who has a press. We can also try and pair the inexperienced with the experienced for editioning. This is not a time to learn a new medium of printmaking. Work in an area that you are comfortable. Remember that pulling an edition requires time beyond the creation of imagery.
Bridges will investigate the intersections between traditional and emerging technologies and how these tools are vehicles for creating meaningful and critical discourse around contemporary issues.
This year we will be submitting our portfolio to the 42nd SGC International Printmaking Conference which will be held in the
San Francisco Bay Area March 26-29, 2014. The conference theme is Bridges: Spanning Tradition, Innovation, and Activism.
Please join us for our annual exhibit Multiple Originals XVIII, from December 5th through December 28th, 2013, in the Julia C Butridge Gallery at the Dougherty Arts Center. The exhibit will include our 2013 trade portfolio.
