When I first designed our Twelve Days linocut prints, I only pulled a few prints of the total run of 20 for a few donors. Today, the rest of the run is dry! Once they are given away to our donors, I won't print these linocuts ever again. They are high-quality hand pulled prints using Cranfield inks on Rives BFK paper, and they will be signed and editioned. If you want one, email us at jesterartspace@gmail.com. I suggest a $100 donation to Jester Artspace (its deductible, we're a nonprofit), but we never like to let money get in the way of art for people who are struggling (its 2020 after all). We are happy to take what you can give.

We still need a few more able-bodied folks to sign up to help us on Saturday at noon! The County's contractor has left some joists and boards on the site for us to reuse as we can for our part of the restoration. We just need some help tossing them into a truck to take off to storage. It would be a shame to see them get hauled to the dump because we couldn't round up some help! Sign up here: www.jesterartspace.org/farmhouse-volunteer-form ...

Also, looking for a gift for someone? We will be giving away matted linocut prints by Alan and Debra to our volunteers! See comments for images.

Your donations will go directly to the upcoming restoration efforts and once the farmhouse is restored, we can hold classes and community events! The in-person support of the community meant that we could save the original doors and trim from the house to put back in the restoration process. Pictured here is one of the community volunteers who helped in those efforts.
