Reminder about events this weekend:
Pyramid Atlantic Book Arts Fair--with WPG’s AMAZINGLY priced printeDCircuit portfolio–$475 for 14 prints and an introductory essay by John Kelly of the Washington Post. Feel good bonus–70% of the proceeds go to our non-profit sister company, the Washington Print Foundation, which promotes traditional printmaking processes. Want to know more about the fair? Click on the link above for the official site and also read the story at the Gazette!
Opening Reception: Glimpse–Join Artist Lee Newman for the opening reception of his retrospective solo exhibition, Glimpse. Lee’s put a lot of work into this show, literally–almost 60 pieces! Some of the prints are in international collections and well-known US collections, such as the National Gallery of Art. If you buy one, it would be a very impressive conversation starter! “Oh yes, isn’t this a lovely piece? It’s also in the collection of the National Gallery of Art.” A great way to look super classy AND support a wonderful local artist.
With the Book Arts Fair and the Opening, there will be lots of WPG artists around, so this weekend is definitely worth the trip to Silver Spring if you’ve been putting it off. We hope to see you soon!
