Anderson Ranch Editions
Created in the Patton Print Shop
Since 1978, top contemporary artists have visited Anderson Ranch Arts Center and produced quality artwork here in the Patton Print Shop. The Anderson Ranch Editions are a collection of these prints.
Anderson Ranch Editions publication program has invited emerging and established artists alike to work on projects across a variety of processes. Throughout the years, the Editions program has been directed by a number of artists and Master Printers including Bud Shark, Catherine Chauvin, Craig O’Brien, David Mohallatee, Hiroki Morinoue, Jonathan Singer, Liz Ferrill, Matthew Christie, Maurice Sanchez, Melinda Beeman, Rob Brinker and Timothy Berry.
In the Patton Print Shop, artists have the opportunity to experiment with their ideas in new ways. Printmaking has always incorporated cutting-edge technology with traditional skills, and the Ranch encourages artists to combine traditional print processes with the newest digital technology. This supported experimentation helps artists to grow and connect, and expands horizons for the Anderson Ranch community.
The resulting prints are made available for purchase and the proceeds provide ongoing support for all Ranch programming.
If you have questions about the Anderson Ranch Editions program, or would like help with a purchase, please contact Meriwether McClorey, Artistic Programs Manager at email@example.com or call 970/924-5098.

Trained as a biologist, Allison Stewart’s forty-year visual arts career has been steadfastly informed by our increasingly fragile environments and the ultimate interconnectedness of all living things. Using deep layers of color and texture to illustrate experiences of time and transformation, Stewart navigates the complex and often disturbing relationships between humans and nature.
Gregory Botts developed as a figurative and landscape painter under the tutelage of New York school rebels Paul Georges and Fairfield Porter – two artists seeking a relevant, modern vocabulary for representational painting that also honored certain ideas from Abstract Expressionism. Over his career, Botts has injected poetry, philosophy and critical theory into his continuing search for a painting style that marries the abstract to the concrete.
Jane Dickson has been exhibiting her paintings, drawings, and prints in museums and galleries domestically and internationally for two decades. She frequently works with unusual surfaces such as Astroturf, sandpaper, vinyl, or carpet to exploit the implicit references and the textural possibilities these materials offer.
Eric Fischl is an internationally acclaimed American painter and sculptor. His artwork is represented in many distinguished museums throughout the world and has been featured in over one thousand publications. His extraordinary achievements throughout his career have made him one of the most influential figurative painters of the late 20th and early 21st centuries.
“I am interested in evocative inferences about how we have come to live with nature—the shaping of landscape, cultivation and destruction activities, wild and domestic nature, shelters, markers, spaces, natural and evolved forms—icons that come from living with, and against, nature.”
Susan Shatter (1943-2011) was one of the great champions of contemporary watercolor painting, and a virtuoso of the medium. A native New Yorker, she studied at Boston University, Pratt Institute and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine, and was the subject of over thirty solo exhibitions.
