Over the last 25 years, Island Press, the professional printshop at Washington University’s 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 and $500 — will take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 14, in the School of Art’s Bixby Hall. Cash, checks and credit cards are all accepted, and payment plans will be available. Bixby Hall is located at the intersection of Skinker and Forsyth boulevards. For more information, call (314) 935-6571.
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 on view are 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 at Washington University. It has placed works in major collections around the world, including the Whitney Museum of Art. For more information, visit http://islandpress.wustl.edu.
