Portrait Project (Part 1)

Beginning this June, The Ink Shop invites you to have your portrait printed! The Ink Shop Printmaking Center will offer prints produced by its members at an affordable price to our Ithaca community. The prints are for, by, and about the people of Ithaca. We want to reach out to the community and celebrate our diversity. The project will start out as an invitation event, but we are hoping to extend the project to anyone who wishes to have a portrait print. These prints will be available on our website or in the shop to all family, friends, and collectors.
