International art at rock-bottom prices

Island Press holiday sale Dec. 14

Over the past 25 years, Island Press, the professional print shop in the School of Art, has published dozens of editions by internationally renowned artists, displayed work at major museums around the world and generally earned a reputation for pushing the boundaries of the printmaking medium.

It has never, however, had a sale. Until now.

The Island Press Holiday Sale — a special one-time-only event including discounts of 30 percent to 50 percent off list prices and a large selection of works between $100-$500 — will take place from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Dec. 14 in the School of Art’s Bixby Hall. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted, and payment plans will be available.

Artists include nationally and internationally known figures such as Ed Boccia, Michael Byron, Hung Liu, Marvin Lipofsky, David Nash, Phyllis Plattner, Franco Mondini Ruiz, Jane Sauer and Catherine Wagner. Also available will be new and in-production editions by Frida Baranek, James Barsness, Tom Friedman and Shimon Okshteyn.

Island Press was founded in 1977 by Peter Marcus, professor emeritus of printmaking. It has placed works in major collections around the world, including the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
