Each year, the WPA has an annual exchange portfolio referred to as a trade. Members determine the theme and are all encouraged to participate. When possible, we invite other printmaking organizations to participate in the trade. This enriches the experience for participants with the exchange of ideas and printmaking techniques from other printmaking communities. This volume is made up of all the trades created in the past fourteen years since WPA's conception.
This compilation was created to celebrate WPA's 14th anniversary; fourteen years of women creating art, supporting one another, as well as educating themselves and the community about printmaking. It takes a lot of dedication and passion to keep a volunteer organization going for fourteen years. This book is dedicated to all of the members whose hard work got us this far as well as all those who will take us into tomorrow.
