[Re] Current Editions - 50 Years of Prints

Saturday, July 7, at noon we will host a reception and walk through with Virginia Wright and Greg Kucera

Recently in The Seattle Times
July 27, 2012 "Honoring Wright's legacy and the power of prints" by Robert Ayers pdf

"Greg Kucera, who is now one of Seattle's best-regarded gallerists, recalls that back when he was a University of Washington student of all the Seattle galleries that he requented, Virginia Wright's Current Editions "was the only gallery here that was showing artists with an international reputation." read more


[Re] Current Editions is an homage to Virginia Wright's legendary and groundbreaking Seattle gallery. Open from 1967 to 1974, she offered collectors the chance to view and collect limited edition prints by renowned artists of the time working in printmaking studios such as ULAE in New York, Marlborough in London, and Gemini GEL in Los Angeles. The tradition continues today with the more recent works in our show.

The provenance for many artworks in [Re] Current Editions, by artists such as Albers, Stella, Rauschenberg, connects directly to Current Editions. Virginia was remarkable in her prescient realization that these prints, so affordable then, would be so much more important and sought after than they were in the 1960s and 1970s.
