We’ve mentioned AS220–the fantastic Providence community arts organization that’s worked with PPL on collaborations like the glass plate negatives project or the Wondershow–on this blog many times in the past. And we use the printing press at their printshop to create the covers for our Occasional Nuggets publication. They’ve quickly become a cherished Providence institution, and if you’re interested in supporting the printshop (and getting some original artwork in the process), this is your chance.
The annual AS220 Print Lottery is taking place now. $100 buys a ticket, which guarantees you an original print by a local artist.The drawing will take place on September 29th, so don’t wait too long to get your ticket. And you can stop in at the main AS220 gallery (115 Empire Street, Providence, RI 02903) between now and then to take a look at the artwork on offer.
