About the exhibition

On view and in the Kentler Flatfiles: A selection of silkscreen editions printed at Art Awareness in Lexington, New York.


The Avocet Portfolio was initiated in 1985 to make space for the collaborative process of artists, produce vivid fine art screen prints in small editions, and to further the development of non-toxic printmaking.

Jolie Stahl and I invited a few of our favorite artists from the infamous NYC group COLAB/ Collaborative Projects, Inc. and the wider art community. It was a volatile mix in a beautiful landscape. We combined private and public support to build a historically interesting production model for group work.

In the interim, portfolio artists have made more multiples, led fascinating lives, acquired international fame, received prestigious awards, and made contributions in leadership and cultural activism.
