Broad Summit Prints

One of the happiest parts of organizing the retreat was working with Eric Rewitzer of 3 Fish Studios. Eric and his wife Annie Galvin (who is also an artist) are friends I met through Evany years ago.

Eric made us these lovely limited edition linocut prints to commemorate the weekend, and took a few photos of the process for me.

California iconography is a running theme for 3 Fish Studios:

(Update: Oops. My original upload contained some similar work by Annie, these are Eric’s prints.)

When I told Eric we were staying in a redwood forest, he already had a few photos of redwoods he’d taken as inspiration. He even surprised us by hand coloring the prints.

They were so lovely, we decided to use them as favors instead of adding them to the gift bag. If you’d like to learn to make your own and you’re near the Bay Area, 3 Fish Studios offers linocut printmaking classes pretty regularly, so drop them a note and they’ll notify you when space opens up. Thanks again, Eric!

    These are so cool! I have a sinking feeling I may get myself into trouble shopping their site…

    I have a couple of Annie’s paintings that I love. Nice to see Eric’s work highlighted.

    Thanks for the details on the BS. I love finding out all of the little things that went into making this event so special.
