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. The “collectors,” people just like you who own art that they have purchased from our exhibiting artists, or those of you who are inspired to collect art from other genres, are invited to participate. 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.  Saturday April 28, 1:30 p.m. “The Collectors Wall” at Vashon Center for the Arts.
