Spend the evening of Thursday June 20 with us as we raise funds for Tandem Press’s educational and outreach programming!

This year’s Wine & Art Auction will include live music and entertainment, special champagne and wines, hor d’oeuvres and dinner catered by Red, and a legendary silent and live auction featuring rare wines, beautiful artworks, and unforgettable experiences.

Anyone who has attended the Wine & Art Auction in previous years will attest that this is the event of the season!

Tickets are $150 each. The first 100 persons purchasing two tickets will receive a limited edition print by Pittsburgh-based artist Lenore Thomas (a UW alumna who worked at Tandem Press while a student!). Attendance is limited to 250, so purchase your tickets early!

Upcoming Printmaking Workshop

Monotype: A Painterly Approach to Printmaking


Monotype is considered the painterly print due to its immediate approach, with an end result that sometimes looks more like a painting than a typical print!

In this two-day workshop, learn how to create original, one of a kind prints through direct mark making and discover the many possibilities and spontaneous interactions that this versatile printmaking process has to offer.

Participants will have the opportunity to view examples of monotypes from the Tandem Press inventory and will be guided through multiple methods that may be used in the creation of their own monotype prints. Workshop participants will learn various techniques for applying ink to a plexiglass plate, how to transfer their marks from the plexiglass onto paper using a printmaking press, and how to print multiple layers of ink to fully develop their image.

Dates: Saturday July 27 and Sunday July 28, 10am-5pm
Location: Tandem Press, 1743 Commercial Avenue, Madison, WI 53704
Cost: $300 (includes plexiglass, paper, and ink for printing)

Enrollment closes July 15
