We are excited to share WPA books + editions: On Gathering, a special selection of books, prints, and objects on the topic of gathering. We are focusing on this theme in celebration of the season and in anticipation of our upcoming spring Symposium co-directed by Asad Raza and Prem Krishnamurthy centered on the question: how can we gather now?

The books and objects included in this iteration of WPA books + editions invite you to consider what happens when we come together intentionally. The offerings include books published by Press Press and Thick Press, prints by Secret Riso Club and Other Forms, SEEN Magazine, tote bags by Paul Shortt, artwork by local DMV-based artists Rex Delafkaran, Jennifer Lillis, and Ayana Zaire Cotton, plus so much more!

Starting Saturday, December 3rd, our gallery hours are Thursday–Saturday from 1–6 pm. We hope you'll stop by to browse and find gifts for you or someone special!
