The Mission: Art + Charity
The Working Proof seeks to promote art and social responsibility. Each print is paired with a charity of the artist's choice, to which we are donating 15% of the sale of each print - creating what we believe to be a product with not just aesthetic, but social value. Besides showcasing emerging artists and great artwork, the intent of the Working Proof is to promote a variety of charities and to expose them to new supporters through the appreciation of art and creativity. We release a new print once a week, on Tuesdays at 1:30 pm, EST.
The Working Proof is made possible by a grant from:
Redeemer Presbyterian Church and their Center for Faith and Work. We are very grateful for their financial and professional support.
Who are we?
The Working Proof was founded by Anna Corpron and Sean Auyeung, also known as Sub-Studio. Printmakers ourselves, we love art and design. Besides making things, we run the Sub-Studio Design Blog, a curated collection of products, furniture, jewelry, architecture and artists that float our boat. Turning that same eye to the Working Proof, we aim to build a collection of great, limited-edition, affordable artwork from some of the best artists out there.
About your print:
We seek to give our artists full creative control of their work by having them produce and sign the work themselves. Most of our artists create, print (by whatever method they choose - screenprint, letterpress, linocut, giclee, to name a few), sign and number a limited-edition print run that is exclusive to the Working Proof. The details of each print method are listed on the print's info page. Hand signing and numbering is a long-standing tradition for authorship and authenticity that we believe is an integral part of the process of printmaking, for both the artist and collector.
From time to time, The Working Proof produces the print edition for the artist. These print editions often contain a signature within the print and are numbered by The Working Proof. This information is stated clearly in the description of the print.
