Deborah DeWit

One of our favorite artists...Deborah DeWit has been awarded the annual Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking Residency for this next October. Deb is one of the two invited artists working with printer Julia D'Amario, formerly of Pace Editions (New York) in Sitka's printmaking studio. Support for this residency is provided in part by Jordan Schnitzer and the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation. Each fall, two artists are invited for a period of two weeks to work intensively in the print studio with Julia D'Amario. The artists learn how to translate their work into a new medium. At the end of the artists' residency, Julia editions the prints, which are then divided equally between the artist and the Sitka Center. Copies are also given to the Gordon Gilkey Print Center at the Portland Art Museum and Jordan Schnitzer's print collection. Every other year the guest artists' prints are exhibited in January at Prints Arts Northwest in Portland. Congratulations Deb! We can't wait to see what you'll do!
