Daedalus - The Print Studio Collectors Club
Daedalus is an exciting venture from The Print Studio, Cambridge, and we would like to invite you to become a part of it.
Each year, two renowned artists will be commissioned to create a print each specifically for the Daedalus club. The prints are limited to an edition of 70, with 50 provided to the members of the club. The remaining 20 prints are sold by the artists at their full retail price. The first year, we were very fortunate to have the enthusiastic support of John McLean and Stephen Chambers, two gifted and highly regarded artists. Both have worked extensively with the studio in the past. Their prints ‘Drumsturdy’ and 'The Female Quixote’ were very popular.
This year two leading New York artists, Willard Boepple and Ellen Lanyon have kindly agreed to make work for Daedalus. Both of them have a considerable reputation for their graphic work which is held in many important collections.
Envisaged as a long term venture, the Daedalus Club will invite two new artists to participate each year, though membership will be restricted to 50. This small, select community provides a rare opportunity for members to become closely involved in the working life of one of the UK’s finest printmaking studios, whilst building an exceptionally affordable collection of first rate work by some of the world’s best artists.
Membership costs £60 a month for twelve months, although members can make a one-off payment if desired. If you are interested in joining us or would like further information, please contact Kip Gresham at the Print Studio as soon as possible. Bearing in mind that membership is limited to 50 and we foresee that places may be filled quickly, a prompt reply would be appreciated.
If you choose to join now, your first print will be by Willard Boepple. As a new member you would also have the option to add the previous Daedalus prints by John McLean and Stephen Chambers to your collection by paying a supplement for the first year’s subscription.
