JC Gilmore-Bryan is continuing to donate 100% from sales of her Notre-Dame prints to the Cathedral's rebuilding fund. Beginning today (11/22/19), she will provide a free copy of this new book along with every Notre-Dame print purchased via buyrvaart.com. This custom-made 26-page hardcover edition features 23 of JC's screenprints of Notre-Dame that she made during her 2017, 2018, and 2019 residencies at the Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris: prints from the Flying Buttresses series, from the Phantoms series, and from the series she made immediately after the fire. This special bonus will be in effect through the end of December, 2019, at which time she will head back to Paris. She has been awarded a January/February residency at the Cite specifically to continue her screenprint explorations of Notre-Dame Cathedral. And while there she will deliver another check for the rebuilding fund. Your purchase will enhance that check!
Normally priced at $175, the prints are available for $125 each, with 100% going to help rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral. JC was awarded a January/February 2020 residency in Paris specifically to continue her screen print explorations of Notre-Dame. She'll do new prints there and will leave some for exhibit in Paris' 2020 Fete de L'Estampe that will take place in May. She'll leave for Paris on January 3, 2020.

Her screenprints of Notre Dame Cathedral were created in 2017 and 2018 just across the river from the Cathedral at the Cite Internationale des Arts. They stretch and explore the boundaries of conventional screenprint techniques and make use of off-registration and phosphorescent inks. A group of the prints, entitled “Phantoms of Notre Dame,” was featured in a solo exhibition at the Cite Internationale des Arts in June 2018.
