CCP Editions Club Subscription
What is the Editions Club?
The Editions Club subscription program is an excellent way to start or expand your print collection. Each year, the Center for Contemporary Printmaking selects a prominent artist to collaborate on a limited edition print, and offers these prints to subscribers, sight unseen. The Center for Contemporary Printmaking is thrilled to announce the 2016 Editions Club.
We are pleased to announce the availability of the 2016 Editions Club subscriptions. This year, we are back to the artist and print being a mystery – we are sure that you will be pleased with the invited artist for this year’s surprise.

2015 Editions Club Print
On Sunday, February 28, the 2015 Editions Club Print, "El Giorgio," by Richard Meier was revealed at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking (CCP). CCP is grateful to Guest Master Printer Gary Lichtenstein of Gary Lichtenstein Editions for printing this work for the Center. Lichtenstein, a member of the Center’s Advisory Committee, collaborated with Meier on this print collage and said, “It is simply an honor and a privilege to work with Richard Meier. I am witness to unparalleled commitment and inspirational spontaneity on so many different levels. Ours is a true partnership and it’s one that I treasure.”
The silkscreen edition entitled, "El Giorgio," is based on a collage created by Richard Meier using the process of encaustic. The edition was printed by hand by Gary Lichtenstein and embellished by hand by Richard Meier. The hand-embellishment has resulted in a silkscreen edition where each print is, in fact, unique. The image measures 10" x 10" and the paper measures 16" x 16".
A few copies of the signed, limited 80-print edition are still available for $1,500. If you are interested in purchasing the 2015 Editions Club Print, "El Giorgio," by Richard Meier, please contact Jackie at 203.899.7999.
Now is also a great time to sign up for the 2016 Editions Club. You can secure your copy of the next print for only $450, of which $50 supports the Summer High School Scholarship Program. That portion of your subscription is tax-deductible.
Editions Club Fellowship
A portion of the subscription fee, $50.00, is allocated to a fellowship program which enables a graduating high school senior with artistic promise to work alongside a CCP printer in our studios during a summer residency each year. The fellowship allocation is tax-deductible.
2014 Editions Club Fellow
Isabel Gomez from Stamford High School was selected to be the 2014 Editions Club Fellow. She learned new techniques and created works of art under the tutelage of our printing staff. Isabel (Izzy) is now attending The University of Hartford and said, "I had a really good experience working with printmaking, and being able to get this Fellowship, It has opened up a new world of art making practices. I will definitely continue my printmaking in the very near future. Next year, I will be attending University of Hartford Majoring in art/illustration. This Fellowship has helped me develop a taste for what it is like to work around other artists and collaboratively, where you can hear and see what everyone is doing around you and be inspired." Your renewed subscription will allow us to continue this initiative.
