Many of the artists hadnt worked in digital and traditional print techniques and collaborating gave them the opportunity to expand their artistic vision, says Chris Schumaker, studio manager. Its thrilling to work side-by-side with them as they discover new dimensions of their work.
Id never done screen prints before working with Alfstad&, says Michael Wyshock. Its a unique resource for artists.
There is a definite upside for buyers, too, says Anastasia Maracle, gallery manager. Beautiful limited-edition art at lower price points.
There are very few galleries anywhere in the country that provide these benefits to both artists and art lovers, says Sam Alfstad.
