The art of printmaking experienced a surge in innovation during the post-WWII era. In the current century, this renaissance in traditional forms of printmaking, including lithography, serigraphy, intaglio and woodcut—along with new arrivals like digital—has inspired a collegial atmosphere in which printmakers privately trade examples of their work in order to assemble personal collections. The Catfish Press Exchange folio represents the collective effort of one of these special collaborations. Presented as gifts from expert printmaker Joe Sanders and his wife, award-winning graphic designer Julie Sanders, the Catfish Press Exchange contains thirty-seven unique prints from the artists invited to contribute to this “exchange folio.” Take advantage of this rare opportunity to view examples of distinctive, contemporary printmaking never intended for commercial release.
