Welcome back friends and new subscribers to our woodcut catalog. Thank you for visiting Don Gorvett Gallery in historic Portsmouth, NH. This email catalog is in response to requests for updates on new work and the availability of woodcuts that are not on the website. If you would like to have a Don Gorvett woodcut, drawing, or painting, please have a budget you are comfortable working with, and we can suggest work from Don's current inventory.

Tips for the purchaser.
No purchase is too small; all sales are essential to us. Inquire about new woodcuts and the pre-publish pricing program. Don will reserve three woodcut prints out of the newly editioned prints to sell at significant savings! Our pre-publish pricing program is the best way to get an original Don Gorvett color woodcut. Please inquire quickly; the first three go fast. Also, black and white or single color woodcuts are an excellent value. Gift certificates are available year-round, and we have a layaway program. We are available by phone or email to answer your questions.
We are continuing our PRE-PUBLISH PRICING PROGRAM on new woodcuts. This program is exclusive to our newsletter subscribers. Pre-publish pricing allows our subscribers to be the first to see new reduction woodcuts offered at below-market prices. We will reserve three excellent reduction woodcuts out of each edition for this program. Once the first three sell, the remaining woodcuts in the edition will sell at our catalog price.

Please note that several of Mr. Gorvett's color woodcuts have a changed in status to reflect the rarity of the print, or are no longer available.
