Our members currently produce limited edition prints in various traditional media including etching, lithography, silkscreen printing, collagraphy, woodcut and linocut as well as solar plate intaglio and digital prints. Other media include monoprints, installations, assemblages and artist books, as well as mixed media monotypes, reflective of contemporary printmaking practice.
