Hothouse: ImPRINT is a juried, group exhibition of works by WPA member artists that aims to highlight the personal creative process through visual art in combination with written language. 

Juried by Robert Bettmann, Hothouse: ImPRINT highlights the creative work of WPA member artists Damon ArhosFallon Chase, Michael Fischerkeller, Jennifer Pizzillo, Maryanne Pollock, Rebecca Silberman, and Sylvie van Helden. Complementary to and enhancing the exhibition experience, each participating artist worked with Mr. Bettmann to develop an article–subsequently published in the arts magazine Bourgeon–about their own work and creative process.
