Quartermaster Press 25th Anniversary Retrospective Exhibition at Vashon Center for the Arts
April 28 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pmFree
Quartermaster Press Studio celebrates its 25th Anniversary with a retrospective exhibition that includes the printed works of 31 past and present members. April 6 through May 25, 2018 at Koch Gallery at Katherine L White Hall.
Printing is an infinitely expanding art form, embodying creativity, experimentation, and inventiveness. This is the colorful local story of a small group of artists learning to monoprint in a potting shed at Quartermaster Harbor on Vashon Island in 1993. Today, 25 years later, Quartermaster Press Studio is still an active artist collective, working in a fully-equipped etching studio at the historic Beall Greenhouses.
QMP 25 invites you to attend the First Friday Reception on May 4 and these special events:
April 28, 1:30 p.m. Saturday – Guest Lecturer — Collectors’ Conversation:
Quartermaster Press Retrospective – “Collectors’ Conversation” This special event is part of the Quartermaster Press 25 Retrospective at Vashon Center for the Arts.

We’ll find out what draws people to collect artwork, the benefits of owning a work, how a piece changes as it becomes part of one’s daily life… and much more.
