We are proud to announce the results of the 1st Annual Members Print Competition, open to members of the AS220 Printshop, funded by the Artists Development Fund of The Rhode Island Foundation, and hosted by the RISD Museum. This was an opportunity to have a piece produced at the AS220 Printshop become part of a nationally recognized museum collection. In the first round, juror Andrew Raftery selected five prints, which were then submitted to juror Jan Howard who selected print #3 Division Street (pictured to the right) by Henry Brown to become a permanent part of the RISD Museum’s collection. Henry, also pictured showing Umberto Crenca the finer points of printing, will also donate a print from the same edition to the AS220 Printshop to become part of our permanent collection. Henry has been a Keymember at the Printshop since August of 2009. He also teaches his printmaking techniques in our Intermediate Silkscreen class, which will be running this May.
