Sign up before November 1 and join the Print Collector’s Club for only $ 380!

The tradition of the Collector’s Club
Most printshops around the world offer this kind of service which is cherished by art collectors. Part of the appeal is the surprise – the collector does not know whose work they will be receiving. They trust that the workshop will make the absolute best selections for them.

The artwork
New Grounds Gallery has an incredible talented and widely exhibited stable of artists from which to choose from. In addition, some of the published artists will be selected from New Grounds’ sister gallery, Matrix Fine Art. The selected artist will create a work of art in the same style and subject matter that we have come to expect from them. The images sizes will vary, but the minimum image size will be 12 x 9.” Some images will be printed in black and white, some in color.

Life Among the Margins - Woven Monotypes by Vicki Bolen

Life Among the Margins

8 x 8"

Handstitched Monotype and Collagraph

Vicki Bolen’s colorful abstract monotypes go far beyond the traditional look of this 19th century printmaking medium. By incorporating applications such as weaving, stitching, quilting and, most recently, origami, she infuses her painterly work with dimensionality, movement and texture.

Exhibition dates: October 2 – 31
(Early Bird Preview: September 29 – October 2)

First Friday Artscrawl Reception:
October 2, 5 – 8:00 PM

Demonstration during the reception: Collagraphs by Vicki Bolen from 6:30- 7:00 PM.
