Join us to view a selection of limited edition prints from the Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking Residency. The exhibit includes framed and unframed work for viewing and sale by approximately 30 artists including Avantika Bawa, Clare Rojas, Katia Santibanez, Patti Warashina, Heather Watkins, Jenny Lind, Chris Antemann, Ellen George, Ryan Pierce, Samantha Wall, Marie Watt and Brenda Mallory.
The exhibit is part of our ongoing celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking Residency. Approximately 100 prints will be available for viewing and purchase.
The Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking Residency (JSPR) was established in 2002 to provide working artists with little or no printmaking experience the opportunity to explore a new creative medium with guidance, instruction and technical assistance from master printmaker Julia D'Amario. Each artist creates work in editions of 10, with five going to the artist and additional prints going to the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation, the Portland Art Museum and the Sitka Permanent Art Collection. Two prints from each edition are available for sale in support of Sitka Center’s programs.
We look forward to celebrating 20 years of printmaking and sharing this beautiful collection with you. If you are unable to attend this sale, you can learn about the JSPR artists, the JSPR collection and click here to view available prints for sale.
