Season's News

We are thrilled to let you know that we are the new organizers of the Editions/Artists' Books Fair! We are excited to continue the wonderful work of the E/AB Fair and present its 16th installment next month, November 6 -9. For all the details, please visit www.eabfair.org.  
Ryan McGinness and Sebastiaan Bremer completed their Publishing Residencies earlier this year and we look forward to exhibiting their new work at the E/AB Fair. Also on view will be Enoc Perez's latest edition, Fontainebleau, Miami, published as a benefit print to support the E/AB Fair. Each artist received full support to create a new body of work in collaboration with our master printer and his studio team. Recent projects by Hank Willis Thomas, Heide Fasnacht, Kate Shepherd and Janaina Tschäpe are also available for viewing at the Printshop. All have been beautifully recognized in the Editions '14 catalog essay by curator Micaela Giovannotti. Schedule your visit to view the works and pickup a free catalog.  

Simon Evans, Dasha Shishkin, and Derrick Adams are at the core of their collaborations with the printing team Erik Hougen, Keigo Takahashi, and our new Printing Assistant Anthony Picarelli
We were honored to work with other amazing artists through our Contract Printing program including most recently Mary Temple, Fred Tomaselli, Emilio Perez, Rashid Johnson, Rebecca Quaytman, Jill Magid, Thomas Dozol, and Jeremy Kost.

This month we were delighted to welcome new Keyholder Residents: Guy Ben-Ari, Noa Charuvi, Xinyi Cheng, Maia Cruz Palileo, and Lina Puerta.

Warm thanks to the Keyholder selection panelists: Gabriel de Guzman, Curator of Visual Arts, Wave Hill; Rob Fischer, Artist; Julie McKim, Director, Kunsthalle Galapagos; Naomi Reis, Artist and former Keyholder; and Marie Tennyson, Assistant Director, Le Roy Neiman Center for Print Studies.

Our low-cost Studio Rental Program continues to be in high demand by a diverse pool of artists. The program is non-competitive, open to all artists, and offers full studio access from an hourly to monthly basis, for as long as needed.

We had a fantastic turnout at the reception for Treasure Island, guest curated by NYC/DC-based curator and writer Julie Chae. Treasure Island alludes to the high seas explorations that took place during the Age of Enlightenment on through the Romantic Era, the navigating and mapping through dangerous waters to discover strange new worlds, peoples, and goods. Participating artists are Theresa Bloise, Amanda Church, Amy Friedberg, Esperanza Mayobre, Ali Medina, Bundith Phunsombatlert, Felix Plaza, Paul Shore, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann, Juana Valdes, Daniel Vasquez, Liz Zanis, and Anya Zelinska. The show is on view through November 9, so come by for a visit.  

Upcoming, we are excited to welcome guest curators Benjamin Sutton, Art News Editor of Art Info and artist Dahlia Elsayed!

We are grateful that two of the prints by Kate Shepherd will be included in the Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum exhibition Spatial Planes that opens December 4, in San Antonio, TX.

We have the right printmaking class for you! View our class schedule, and visit the studio for a brief tour before registration. Students receive class materials and additional free studio hours. 
Our Salon program continues for Keyholders in residence and this month we will welcome Master Papermaker of Pace Paper Ruth Lingen as guest speaker. 

Stay tuned for our Career Development Workshop series. Upcoming, artist Emilio Perez will lead a talk on developing and understanding your own visual sensibility. 

Special workshops can turn anyone into a printmaker in a few hours! Most recently we welcomed the Youth Program from The Studio Museum in Harlem for a hands-on screenprinting workshop.  We have also conducted one-on-one, custom-tailored workshops for artists at all skill levels.

The next Internship application deadline is November 15 for the Spring semester (January - May). Interns participate in all aspects of collaborations with resident artists, and we provide school credit or free studio time in exchange for your commitment.

                             We look forward to seeing you often this season!
