WEEKEND HOURS AND SPECIAL EVENTS TO BE ANNOUNCED
COLPA is a publishing company based in San Francisco, CA, specializing in hand-made art books, limited edition prints, and the curation of print-related fine art exhibitions. Run by artists/founders Luca Antonucci and Carissa Potter--with great help from in-house designer Hailey Loman--COLPA's publications challenge the relationship between printmaking and concept, creating objects in reciprocal dialog with the way in which they are produced.
COLPA operates EDICOLA, an art-centric newsstand on Market and 6th streets in San Francisco; publishes GAZZETTA, a handsome monthly art rag; and offers custom print services in letterpress, Risograph, and screen printing.
*COLPA works with artists-in-residence to design, print, and distribute limited edition publications. COLPA's first round of AIR's include Still Dots, Daniel Small, and Nicolas Miller. This project is made possible by the generous support of Southern Exposure's Alternative Exposure Award.
