Wassaic Project Editions
RELAY Artist Book // Audra Wolowiec & Leon Johnson
Through a series of workshops in the community, sound recordings, and interviews, The Wassaic Project Fall 2016 Artists in Residence, Leon Johnson and Audra Wolowiec, in collaboration with Education Director Tara Foley, sought to foster dialogue between young residents and long-time residents of the Wassaic community. The project culminated in a limited edition of 25 artist books, and a version of the book was displayed in conjunction with the John Dolan exhibition on November 12th.
The book is priced at $175 and 70% of the purchase price goes to support our education program at the Wassaic Project.

The Wassaic Project presents our inaugural edition: a silk print by Maximilian Bode. The Wassaic Project Editions Series will commission and produce limited editions of Wassaic Artist’s works.
This unique silkscreen print was made in the Wassaic Project print shop in collaboration with our Print Fellow Breanne Trammell and Print Intern Douglas Eberhardt. Sales of this benefit print will go directly to help fund our Summer Exhibition program, which showcases over 100 artists annually in Wassaic. Maximilian will receive 20% of all sales.
Maximiliam Bode’s Untitled is part of the artist’s ongoing investigation of the natural world in which he creates “impossible” landscapes that mix natural forms with surreal textures and colors. For the Wassaic Project Benefit print, the resulting image is illustrative and playful, belying the depiction of violent seas, jagged rocks, dark skies, and foreboding clouds. Bode’s layered technique used to make this iconic image is captured seamlessly through the process of a multiple color silkscreen and we are delighted to present it as our inaugural benefit print.
We are offering a limited number of prints for $650. Prints are unframed and available on a first come, first serve basis. The price of the edition will increase as the edition sells out, so we encourage you place your order soon. Please contact Eve Biddle to purchase a print: email@example.com, 917.748.4801
Buying Art from the Exhibition
Each year The Wassaic Project curates a summer exhibition that includes the work of over 80 emerging artists, who have either participated in the Wassaic Artist Residency Program or have applied through our open call. The exhibition is housed in Maxon Mills, an historic grain elevator in the heart of Wassaic. Buying art from the exhibition is the best way to support our mission because it helps The Wassaic Project, supports incredible artists, and builds your collection. The Annual Summer Benefit provides the first look at each year’s exhibition.
Thank you for your support of The Wassaic Project!
