An Award-Winning Publication
I am very proud to announce that the gallery, in collaboration with ColorNet Press, has been awarded a Certificate of Merit from the Printing Industries of America for our artist’s monograph, Sensual Mechanical: The Art of Craig Kauffman. The Premier Print Awards are held yearly to recognize the highest quality printed pieces in over 100 categories from around the world. As our plaque notes, “The Premier Print Award goes to those firms who demonstrate a unique ability to create visual masterpieces. Chosen from thousands of entries, each represents the unique partnership between designer and printer, need and creativity, technology and craft.”
I’m glad the award emphasizes collaborative relationships because it’s so important to me to recognize the gallery’s partners in this project – it wouldn’t have been possible without everyone’s hard work. For the design of the book, I will always be grateful for the vision of the late Joe Molloy, of Mondo Typo, and his wife, Amita Molloy, who worked as our production manager. Additional design assistance was provided by Jim Drobka, with typography done by Diane Franco. Finally, I have to thank Nick Nejad of ColorNet Press, for his dedicated attention and expertise. I’m proud to share this award with him.
