This Season at the Printshop!

Master Printer Erik Hougen with Publishing Residents Heide Fasnacht and Hank Willis Thomas.

Season's News

We are tremendously grateful to our artists, supporters, and the entire Printshop family for your passion, engagement, and for starting the season off with a bang!    

Hank Willis Thomas, Alison Elizabeth Taylor, and Kate Shepherd are completing their Publishing Residencies! Each artist received full support and the opportunity to create a significant body of work. They spent the year collaborating with our master printer and his studio team to create new print editions. We are very proud of these publications, all of which display a unique approach to the medium. We know you will agree! Editions by Thomas and Taylor are already available for viewing and purchase, and we will be ready to unveil Shepherd's later this year. 
You may have visited Thomas' solo exhibition at Jack Shainman Gallery last fall; we were thrilled to print the Fair Warning series of 18 carborundum-flocked works in that show. And, Alison Elizabeth Taylor's solo exhibition at James Cohan Gallery opens on October 24. Don't miss the chance to see how her latest prints connect to her wood veneer paintings.
Heide Fasnacht and Janaina Tschape are building their projects in full force, while Dasha Shishkin will just be getting started next month.

We are excited to announce the newly awarded Publishing Residents: Derrick Adams, Simon Evans, and LaToya Ruby Frazier. Congratulations! 

This week we are welcoming the new Keyholder Residents: Theresa Bloise, Robert Hernandez, Andy Meerow, and Jaret Vadera!

Special thanks to the Keyholder selection panelists: Lisa Kim, Cultural Affairs Director, Two Trees Management; Adam McCoy, Christie's Senior Specialist, Prints & Multiples; Amani Olu, Independent Curator & Writer, Co-founder and Executive Director of Humble Arts Foundation; David Rios Ferreira, Artist and former Keyholder Resident; and Sara Jo Romero, Schroeder Romero Editions.

Four artists ended their Keyholder Residencies: Megan Berk, Rebecca Bird, Gisela Insuaste, and Charles Koegel. It's been wonderful to have them as a part of the Printshop community and we plan to follow their journeys.
Studio rentals offer artists full access to the facilities to create new work independently. The program is open to all artists and allows you to stay as long as you need. Join us!


We are thrilled to participate in UNTITLED. art fair, Miami Beach, December 4 - 8.

We had a fantastic turnout at the reception last week for Roses By Other Names, guest curated by artist Jaishri Abichandani. The show is on view at the Printshop through November 17, so stop by for a visit. 

We are happy to participate in IPCNY's New Prints 2013/ Autumn exhibition with Jonggeon Lee's 2013 relief print Pyramid I

Selected works from the Printshop's collection by Ghada Amer, Jennie C. Jones, and Shinique Smith are on view at The Roger Smith Hotel's exhibition space through December 8th.

Our Salon program continues for Keyholders in residence and critic, educator, and curator Sarah Schmerler will lead as guest speaker this month.

Stay tuned for our upcoming Career Development Workshop series. Presenters include Heather Darcy Bhandari, Director of Artist Relations at Mixed Greens Gallery; artist Jennie C. Jones; and artist and curator José Ruiz.

This summer we welcomed the Artsy staff, artnet staff, and visiting groups of students to our special workshops. These can be custom tailored as demonstrations, hands-on workshops, or artwork discussions, and they are always fun!

Spring Internship applications are due November 15. Interns assist the printers with all aspects of collaborations with resident artists and receive school credit or free studio time in exchange for their time.

          Thank you for reading. We look forward to seeing you often this season!

Interns Azalia, Brooke, and Tayloe
