5th Birthday Prize Draw: Tickets

Hole Editions will be celebrating it's 5th Birthday this year. To mark this event we shall be holding a fund raising prize draw, like we did for our 3rd Birthday. Artists we have collaborated over the past two years have kindly donated artist proofs as prizes along with a couple of books and a CD.

In addition five further artists have been commissioned to design the draw tickets. Monies raised from the ticket sales will help fund future projects with these artists. The tickets have been printed from photo-polymer plates on our Adana letterpress and are well worth the entry fee in themselves.

The draw will take place on 29th May 2010. You do not have to be present at the draw, tickets will be posted worldwide. Tickets are £5.00 each or a set of 5 for £20. For purchasing and further information (ie. prizes) visit the draw page on our website > 5th Birthday Prize Draw

Here are images of the tickets.

Artist page: Ben Jeans Houghton

In February we collaborated with artist Ben Jeans Houghton on a series of lithographs. This project was made possible through a commission from the Business Collectors Network. Each of their members will receive an impression of Untitled 7 and an impression of each edition will become part of the collection.

Jeans Houghton's web pages are now up on the website. The lithographs are currently available for pre-order at reduced pre-publication prices. Purchase now to make sure that you take advantage of this saving and before you miss out on these stunning hand printed lithographs.

All the works are on show at Moving Gallery, Westgate Rd, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, until the 14th April.
