Benefit print by Timothy Cummings created at Tamarind Institute

Cummings Benefit Print webWe are pleased to offer this special gift of a print by Timothy Cummings to donors $1,000 & upMaster Printer Valpuri Remling, and Apprentice Printers Ash Armenta and Thomas Cert, from the world-renowned Tamarind Institute of Lithography collaborated with resident artist Timothy Cummings to produce a limited edition of the print titled “Musicians.” Cummings drew on a litho stone for the key image, and after some experimentation, selected a delicate lavender ink for the ground. The edition is printed in two-colors, and the artist is selectively hand-coloring each print.

Thanks to the generosity of Tamarind Institute and Timothy Cummings, the first 20 prints in the edition will be gifted to donors to 516 ARTS at the level of $1,000 and up while supplies last. The prints will be available for a limited time. Reserve your print now by joining 516 ARTS at the level of $1,000 or above. Call 516 ARTS at 505-242-1445 to contribute over the phone or use the buttons below.
