The Editions Club 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.
On Sunday, February 26, the 2016 Editions Club Print, Showing Truth to Power, by South African artist Diane Victor was revealed at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking. Victor spent two weeks in residence at the Center’s newly renovated Helen Frankenthaler Printmaking Cottage and worked with Master Printer James Reed to create the lithograph. With the use of various lithographic crayons, tusche, rubbing inks and a razor blade, Victor created the image.The lithograph entitled, Showing Truth to Power, was hand printed by James Reed at the Center and is an edition of 50 prints. The image measures 16″ x 20″ and the paper measures 22″ x 26.”

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.
Your 2015 subscription made it possible for Aoife Cahill, a graduating senior from Fairfield Ludlowe High School to work at the Center last summer for an internship. Cahill is now attending Rhode Island School of Design. Aoife commented, “I am currently a freshman at Rhode Island School of Design hoping to major in textile design. I have just completed my first semester at RISD and am now studying machine knitting during winter session. My focus on many of my final projects has been incorporating textile art into my drawing and design classes. Interning at the CCP and then being given the opportunity to create an edition, gave me the chance to learn how to silk screen print; which I will incorporate into my future studies at RISD.”
