Now available for purchase. Each limited edition print is hand-pulled, hand numbered and signed by the artist, and comes with certificate of authenticity.
Through a grant by the Kriz Charitable Foundation, the John Talleur Printmaking studio at the Lawrence Arts Center has undergone major changes over the past year. A renovation nearly doubled the working space of the studio, and a new Takach Etching Press triples print size capabilities.
Along with the renovated studio, we launched Ad Astra Editions, a professional press for publishing fine art print editions with visiting artists. Proceeds from the sale will go directly towards funding LAWRENCE PRINT WEEK, taking place in the fall of 2017. This is a biennial weeklong event that features a print fair, print exhibits, demonstrations, presentations, studio visits, and more. The project brings together the many artists, organizations, and galleries in Lawrence Kansas to share this rich medium. LAWRENCE PRINT WEEK has been a partnership with the Lawrence Arts Center, Wonder Fair, University of Kansas School of Art, and the Spencer Museum of Art.
