Announcing the Press Room! (and other WPG offerings you may not have heard before)

Our new Mini Press with artwork from recent shows in the background.

Before the holidays get too crazy, I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone of some offerings WPG has, and introduce our new Press Room!

The old Kunst Vault is now the Press Room! Note to the wary: The door is permanently open and chained, you can't get locked in!

NEW!  The Press Room–Finished just this week, we have turned the old Vault into The Press Room, so named for the mini-press that now resides there.  In here we also have a sampling of work from recent shows.  Now that the space is all set up, artists will be doing more demonstrations with their talks (starting with Margaret Adams Parker, December 11) and the gallery now has the capability to screen films for small audiences, as well!  Look for Press Room events listed on our upcoming events page soon!

Gift Certificates–especially important during the gift-giving season!  WPG can provide a gift certificate in any denomination you require, small or large

One more view of the Press Room, now bright and cheery with the red press stand and new art!

Layaway–also important for larger gifts to others or to yourself!  Want that big print but don’t think you can afford it all right now?  Don’t risk losing it!  Put it on layaway.  We require about 30% down (but are flexible, depending on the price) and you have two years to pay off the rest.

Foursquare–Yes, WPG is on Foursquare, a location sharing website that lets you see who of your friends are nearby, site recommendations (such as which Cafe has the best coffee), and special deals.  Are you a regular visitor to the gallery?  Make it worth your while!  Use your smartphone to check in to unlock a “gallery regular” discount.

Flat Files–we have many, MANY more loose prints than what you see on the walls and in the bins.  These are arranged by artist.  Ask the gallery assistant to pull out a few files of your favorite artists to enjoy even more of their prints.

Rentals–looking for something different for your next soiree?  The gallery can be rented out for private parties!  We have had book releases, birthday parties, tastings, and more, so if you have an idea for an event, call us up!

  1. The Press Room looks great! – a wonderful resource for the gallery – and an inviting space for up front demonstrations and instruction. Just what the Washington Printmakers Gallery and the Washington Print Foundation have been striving for – an intimate space to translate to our interested guests, buyers and friends of the gallery the beauty and importance of the original print. With so many digital/Giclee prints in the marketplace, this is an important venue that will offer to explain the mystery of how an original print is made and why it is integral to our appreciation of contemporary art.
