/& Editions Opens at Alfstad& Contemporary

Group Exhibition Features Limited Edition Print Works of Eight Artists

Opening Night Reception: June 3, 5:30-8:00pm

Exhibition Dates: Jun 3 – July 15 | Tues-Sat, 11-5pm

Join us and other art lovers for /& Editions, an exciting group exhibition celebrating limited-edition prints done in collaboration with artists who have exhibited work at Alfstad& Contemporary during the past three seasons 2014-2016. This is the final show of the gallery's third season in Sarasota. 

Artists include Betsy Cameron, Alain J.L. Huin, Marsha Kazarinov-Owett, Andrea Dasha Reich, Mike Solomon, Bruna Stude, Michael Taylor and Michael Wyshock.

The exhibition showcases serigraphs, archival prints and mixed media created by the artists working in the Alfstad& gallery studios. Featured are beautiful limited-edition art pieces at lower price points.

“Many of the artists hadn’t worked in digital and traditional print techniques and collaborating gave them the opportunity to expand their artistic vision,” says Chris Schumaker, studio manager. “It’s thrilling to work side-by-side with them as they discover new dimensions of their work.”

“I’d never done screen prints before working with Alfstad&,” says artist Michael Wyshock. “It’s a unique resource for artists.”

"There is a definite upside for buyers, too," says Anastasia Maracle, gallery manager. "Beautiful, original limited-edition art at lower price points."

Few galleries in the country provide these benefits to both artists and art lovers.
