Quartermaster Press celebrates it's 25th birthday!  The party and exhibit by past and current QMP printers begins April 6, 5:30 PM at Vashon Center for the Arts Koch Gallery.  Below is a publicity photo taken in 2010 at the original QMP studio just two years before it moved to its' new sunny and central Vashon address at the historic Beall Greenhouses, 18531 Beall Rd SW.  Left to right are members Edith Sehulster, Francesca Fuller, Beth Dunn, Suzanne Moore and Lisa Guy .  (Thank you Michael Rosenberg for our photo!)
