New: Print Club Boston

January 22, 2014

I’m always psyched when I hear from fellow Bostonians about a creative project that’s going on there. Boston has such a special place in my heart – I lived there for so long and founded my blog there – it’s a really great and supportive city for creatives! Just this morning I received an email about Print Club Boston, founded by an Australian expat who recently relocated to Boston, Elizabeth Corkery, and wanted to learn more. Elizabeth lives and works and Somerville and as an artist, she decided to try a new adventure and so Print Club Boston was born. What is it exactly? It’s an online source for affordable and limited edition silkscreen prints, and as you can see below, they’re gorgeous and unique. Each piece is released as part of a series which has a thematic cohesion and production and all are printed in limited edition, small runs. I adore the two prints shown directly below, especially the one on the left called Pink Flowers – it really resonates with me for some reason. I imagine it framed in a big copper frame with a white border – so pretty and perfect for springtime!

Elizabeth has this to say about the first series, “The first collectionThe Grid, The Trellis is an eight-print series, which is based around the structural geometry of the garden trellis. A commonly used armature for the upward growth of plants, the trellis simultaneously addresses the potential for fertile, organic expansion and the unnatural geometric structure of the grid.” It’s so interesting to hear where artists begin on their creative journey, don’t you think? Below is a glimpse of Elizabeth working in her studio…

And by the way… Do you have any current sources for shopping for art prints online? Or certain artists that you love and follow? Please share your links below, I’m always looking for new sources for art prints!

    LOVE these prints! thanks for sharing their great work, will be trying to select a print to order later but will be difficult as they all look amazing!

    “Do you have any current sources for shopping for art prints online? Or certain artists that you love and follow?” Yes! I’m currently following Mapplique, ordered a print from them before Christmas as a gift and it really was beautiful in person – will be ordering something for myself soon too. Here’s the link:

    So beautiful! I’m working a new direction for my own art prints as we speak. I have a print in my shop of a canary sitting on a vintage camera (gouache/collage). I plan to do more in this theme…I’m currently working on a vintage mint-green radio with a mother doe and her fawn standing on top (a bit surreal) and a seventies pastel-colored rotary phone with an owl sitting on top of the handset. I also work on more painterly “New England” themes/objects/architecture. It’s gonna be a busy year for new work, so this post was very inspiring for me. Thinking of you from Pepperell, MA! (near your old stomping grounds I believe?)

    I have plans to start designing my own art prints, and would love to have shared a link with you, but busy as always, I am not ready yet. So while we wait, have a look at Kristine Krogh’s amazing work right here:

    One of my all time favorite artists is Samantha Hahn!!! Her illustrations are GORGEOUS!!!

      @Barb – Me too. I just love Samantha.

    @Megan–Beautiful work! I’m reluctant to add links because it’s likely that anything wonderful was discovered right here at Decor8. Nonetheless, here goes. I have a continuing crush on the work of Matte Stephens; he has a fantastic Etsy shop. This shop is on my favorites list, as well. I love the inspirational quotes on these prints (and I love that part of the price goes to charity).

    I love – the prints I’ve bought from there have been so flexible, matching even when I change things around.

    I’m an artist and graphic designer and offer prints of my work! (Shameless, I know) I not only post my own works on my blog but the work of so many other talented artists I admire.

    Many artists sell prints through Fine Art America . One of my favourite artist is Lori McKnee. I love her still life with bird paintings! And if you like a feel of the Orient, why not check out mine, too? ;)

    Love the screen printing. Such great colors. Here is a link to a photographer who was from Boston, now in California. Amazing model shots, but also some of the best imagined photography and scenic photos from around the world. PG Photos, the artist is Paul Granese.

    Midwest Pressed on Etsy! It is two guys who happen to be my favorite printmaking professors when I was a printmaking major in college! Right now, they only have wearable art in their shop (t-shirts and dresses) but they also make prints on paper.

    I also have a special interest in art prints. I am a food stylist in London, and have a small online gallery specialising in foodie based images. The subject varies, from food shops and cafes, peopkle in restaurants, to the freshest market produce shot in a beautiful early morning light.

    I have just come across your blog Holly and love it! Looking at your homes with heart, colour inspiration, top trends, art and crafts have all inspired me. I am a designer, was a textile designer for many years. I have a little Etsy shop which connects me with the world and gives me insight into what people love.
    I sell art prints of all sorts but mainly nursery prints. I love colour in all of its myriad of combinations and I am in love with your pastel trend story which I have been playing around with lately.

    Etsy is a fabulous market place for art prints of all sorts and is so accessible to everyone around the world.
