Season's News

Jennie C. Jones,  David Kramer, Darina Karpov, and Hong Seon Jang--this year's Special Editions Residency recipients--are all working on very complex and exciting projects. In fact David Kramer just finalized his first three collage prints last week!  

We are excited to continue Kate Shepherd's Publishing Residency next month. The program is also currently hosting Alison Elizabeth Taylor, our first collaboration with this accomplished and highly innovative artist. Our latest publication with Enoc Perez--four large screenprints that are not to be missed--will be launched at the Editions/Artists' Book Fair, New York, November 3.

We are continuing our work with artist Michael Riedel and screenprinting his images on large-scale canvases. The latest canvases were shown at David Zwirner's booth at Frieze Art Fair, London, October 2011. Other recent contracted projects include Scott Hunt, Hank Willis Thomas and Kara Walker.  

Our fabulous printer duo, James Miller and Erik Hougen, have certainly had their hands full!
