PreNeo Press

PreNeo Press is the conceptual and collaborative space of Kent Manske & Nanette Wylde, established 1992.

Pre and Neo are frequently used prefixes applied to art historical time periods and genres. Pre meaning before and Neo meaning new. Press has dual meaning for us. First, it indicates our desire to push ourselves intellectually and creatively. Second, it refers to our backgrounds and art making identities as printmakers.

Activities of PreNeo Press include: participating in collaborative portfolios, books and creative projects; teaching and facilitating art experiences; curating exhibitions; providing design and publishing services to non-profit art organizations; and inviting artists to create projects in our print studios.

Our collaboration revolves around a continuous dialogue about aspects of the art world and global/cultural phenomena. We are interested in interpretation and understanding; making meaning out of the complex world we live in; and communicating ideas, perceptions and perspectives.

Publishing arms of PreNeo Press include Hunger Button Books and Whirligig.
