AFTERGLOW : Prints for for sale
Prints for PICA is a fundraiser, fueled by artists in the name of art. Every year artists convene, print, meet each-other, risk certain embarrassment, rise and fall, push around the ink, crank the presses, and create inspired work with a sense of immediacy and purpose both endearing and awe inspiring.
Now that the dust has settled, they have had the opportunity to take stock of what was created. Hundreds of prints came off the presses, and hundreds have been purchased by hungry collectors. Each is $100 and all of the proceeds go to support PICA’s artistic programming.
In fact, as you make your last minute purchases think of walking into a local gallery or shop and purchase work by your local artists. What you give this season matters.
Take a look at some of the inventory on Flickr, and send an email to vic [at] pica.org or call 503.242.1419 x225 if you are interested in purchasing a print. You can also come by and visit the PICA offices at 224 NW 13th Ave #305 Portland 97209 (located inside the Wieden+Kennedy building).
Viewing hours are as follows:
10 am – 6 pm Tuesday, December 16 though Thursday, December 18;
12 – 4 pm Friday, December 19 and Monday and Tuesday, December 22 – 23
For an additional $75 – $150 get your print matted, framed and wrapped in time for the holidays!
