Alliance Prints

The American Print Alliance commissions and publishes a print each year to give to the subscribers of Contemporary Impressions. It's a simple way for artists and collectors to acquire original works in a very wide variety of techniques and styles at minimal cost (after all, the prints are free with your subscription). We are able to do this because the prints are small but the editions are very large. Yet these are original prints, created by the artists specifically as prints in these media, not reproductions of other existing artworks.

All are available for purchase. The order form will be found in Subscribe, a list of all the articles for that year will be found in the Journal Index.
