Dear Axis Gallery Friends and Patrons,
The Covid 19 pandemic has turned the world upside down. In response to this altered state of affairs, the artists of Axis Gallery have come together and created a limited edition portfolio consisting of original, editioned multiples, AXIS 2020: Artists in Isolation.
As a fundraiser for Axis Gallery, we are proud to announce that these portfolios will be available for purchase on December 1st through Axis Editions. All work in the portfolio has been donated by the participating artists and all proceeds from the sale of the portfolio will go directly to supporting the financial health of Axis Gallery, which has been adversely affected by the pandemic.
The work in this portfolio reflects the effects of our peculiar and challenging time, a time when the world is paradoxically united by our shared experience of separation, isolation, and loss. Each Axis 2020: Artists in Isolation portfolio contains 14 works of art, each created in a signed edition of 6 by each of the participating Axis member artists: Omar Thor Arason, Tavarus Blackmon, Doug Dertinger, Roma Devanbu, Kenna Doeringer, Richard Gilles, Benjamin Hunt, Muzi Li, William Mead, Vincent Pacheco, Manuel Fernando Rios, Nicholas Shepard, Joanne Tepper Saffren and Summer Ventis. The works represent a wide range of materials and techniques and include linoleum block prints, silver gelatin prints, archival inkjet prints, mixed media collage, cut paper, and more, collected in a 13”x19” clamshell box. Each portfolio is priced at $2,000.
- Axis 2020: Artists in Isolation portfolio boxes will be available for purchase on December 1 through Axis Editions.

- These works are only available as a complete set. Individual pieces from the collection will not be sold separately.
