Wildwood Press was founded in 1996 by Maryanne Ellison Simmons, who serves as both Publisher and Master Printer. Experimentation and the unexpected are part of Wildwood Press’ ethos, and each project strives to redefine what print can be.

 

Wildwood Press is known not only for its custom papermaking, but also as a destination for artists who want the challenge of an etching press capable of printing 5-foot by 10-foot images. Ellison Simmons invites a select number of artists to work with her in St. Louis every year.

Bring the Color | Bring the Light

After a year in turmoil, isolation and mourning, the need for art has never been so clear. To see, to search for something that brings joy, to find a new work that brings meaning, to discover an artist who says the things that need to be said is a balm.

As we celebrate Wildwood’s twenty-fifth year of collaborative printing, we also celebrate a new hopeful spring after this year of darkness. We have chosen work from each of the twenty-one artists who have printed with us here in St. Louis, work that brings both beauty and meaning to a new future of health and shared hope.

Bring the color, bring the light.
