After checking in for the conference on Wednesday I walked over to see if the Crown Point Press gallery was open. It was and while there I asked gallery associate, Tiffany Harker, how best to request a studio tour on my next visit since the scheduled SGCI tours had been sold out when I registered. She stunned me by offering to walk me through the studio right then and there. It was quick so there are only a few photos and the really good stuff isn’t documented but I’m extremely grateful to have had the chance to experience the space and see the master printers at work.
