2009, Private Places, an Erotic Suite

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. And this year deadlines must be met.  We are pulling a colophon so this project has to be on time.
