2020 Summer Invitational

Mesh was founded two years ago on the premise that many deserving artists working on paper were not getting due recognition for the amazing work they bring into this world.  This journey is still young, but thanks to many clients, enthusiasts and friends, the visibility and support we can give independent artists is ever growing.  This summer 2020, we are particularly proud to launch a first printmaker invitational.  With the input of Jessica Krueckeberg and Miranda Metcalf we were able to bring together a selection of some of the finest active independent voices in printmaking in the United States today.  The diversity in subjects, techniques, background, and esthetic surpasses our wildest imagination.  We cannot say just how thrilled, proud, and humbled we are to have these four artists join our effort and showcase their work with us.  Chloe ALEXANDER, Annalise GRATOVICH, Chad NELSON and Opal Ecker DeRUVO (formerly known as Paul DeRuvo) are artists who each have something unique to say and have honed their artistry to perfecting beauty.  We hope you will show them your support by considering an acquisition.  All work over $250 ship free in the United States.  And 60% of your purchase price goes to the artist.  In these trying times, we encourage you to bring home a work of art that will bring you joy, and directly support their creators.
With gratitude, Bernard Derroitte
