Steamroller printing

Artfête Open House & Holiday Party
Friday, November 22, 6:00–9:00 pm
Full schedule of events

If you didn’t catch the steamroller printing action last year, you’re in luck: this Friday, you have another chance. The steamroller is returning for the Artfête Open House & Holiday Party!

For the kickoff Artfête event, artist Steve Prince and a group of community volunteer artists created two sets of woodcuts. Friday evening at Artfête, you can see the blocks inked and printed by steamroller. You have two chances, at 6:00 and 8:00 pm. The printings will take place on Madison Street in front of the Annex.

About the print: This year’s community print is a special celebration of The Art League’s 60th anniversary, coming up in 2014. And if you make a donation at the Easel Level or above during Artfête, you’ll get a piece of this original art!

Plus, if you bring your Annual Fund donation to the Artfête Holiday Party on Friday, you can double your gift’s impact! Thanks to a generous commitment from MRE Properties Inc.’s Montgomery Center (home to our Madison Street Annex) and Burke and Herbert Bank, donations to the Annual Fund made at Artfête will be matched again this year! (You can bring a check, credit card, cash, or make a pledge.)
