      A CALL FOR ENTRY
      Wheat Farm Press Print Exchange 1:1

      For our first project, Wheat Farm Press is establishing a quarterly print exchange, and juried publication of prints. The goal of this exchange is to promote the development of the finest artistic ideas and talents in contemporary printmaking. We want to further cement a strong printmaking community that continually challenges each other to reach new artistic heights. By participating in the Wheat Farm Press Print Exchange 1:1, you have the opportunity to present your fellow printmakers with your best possible artistic efforts, and in return receive ten prints that are indicative of a fellow printmaker’s dedication, care, thought process, and skill. We are looking for artists at any stage in their artistic lives to dedicate time to the development of an edition of eleven prints. We are looking for people who are passionately dedicated to printmaking, who don’t have access to a press, who have regular access, who print by hand, those who collage, make precise editions, make variable editions, those who can afford the time to work on prints every day, and those who sneak in time whenever possible to develop imagery. In short, we are looking for dedication to an edition, and not a quick or sloppy image. When you challenge yourself with this edition, you show your great respect for your peers within the print community, and give yourself the opportunity to compete for publication in the juried catalog. Please visit http://www.wheatfarmpress.com for more information on how to participate.

      Apprenticeships: Landfall Institute of Graphic Arts

      The Kansas City Art Institute and Landfall Press, based in Santa Fe, N.M., have announced the establishment of the Landfall Institute of Graphic Arts, which will offer six-month apprenticeships in Santa Fe.

      The Landfall Institute of Graphic Arts will provide hands-on training for printers and other print-based artists in graphic processes such as lithography, etching, woodcut and digital printing.

      It will prepare participants for professional application of the skills they acquire during their apprenticeship. A maximum of four apprentices will be accepted for participation at any one time.

      Apprentices will work directly with Master Printer Jack Lemon as well as with Senior Printer Steven Campbell, director of Landfall Press, and a variety of invited artists.

      To be eligible for admission to the Landfall Institute of Graphic Arts, candidates must have a bachelor’s degree or the equivalent.

      Graduates of the Kansas City Art Institute are eligible to apply, as are printers or print-based artists from throughout the United States and around the world who meet the eligibility requirement of a bachelor’s degree or the equivalent.

      Acceptance into the program is at the sole discretion of Landfall Press.

      To apply for an apprenticeship, candidates must provide the Landfall Institute with:
      • A completed application form, providing contact information
      • Proof of a bachelor’s degree or the equivalent
      • Three written recommendations from practicing artists within the field
      • A digital portfolio of current work
      • A statement of accomplishments and interest in the program
      • A resume or curriculum vitae

      A personal interview with Landfall staff is also required, accompanied by a selection of original works. Skype interviews may be accepted, but telephone or written applications, by themselves, will not be sufficient for acceptance to an apprenticeship.

      The cost for a six-month apprenticeship is $9,600, payable to the Kansas City Art Institute. Estimated costs for room and board are $1,500 per month, and participants are expected to provide for their own accommodations as well as travel to and from Santa Fe.

      If a participant is called to active military duty during an apprenticeship or required to withdraw for health reasons, the participant may request a refund in writing to Landfall Press with appropriate documentation. If approved, the refund will be made on a pro-rata basis.

      Candidates will pay the cost for the six-month apprenticeship in two installments: One half is due at the beginning of the first three-month period, and, if a candidate does not continue for the second three-month period, no additional payment will be made. At the end of the first three months of an apprenticeship, Landfall staff will conduct a review to determine the viability of the apprentice’s continuation in the program.

      To request a brochure about the program, which includes an application form, send an e-mail to info@landfallpress.com.

      A week-long print intensive Plein Air & Mixed Media Printmaking in Rural Italy: Exploring Monotype amidst the Garden Splendor of Galeazza.

      Make art & eat great food in a remarkably beautiful place.

      Castello di Galeazza, Pepoli, Emilia-Romagna, Italy / http://www.galeazza.com/galeazzaonline/index.html

      Tuition: $350

      Materials fee: $95

      Castle Accommodations: 50 EU ($70 US) includes all meals.

      Contact / dnpetrillo@gwi.net / 207-568-3224 / 735-8237

      We will be creating monotypes inspired by our direct experience of botanicals and landscape just as plein air painters do. We will be exploring a number of techniques for making painterly one-of-a-kind monotypes using additive light field, subtractive dark field, trace drawing, stencil and stamp methods. We will be combining foam plate reduction relief printing, photo transfer, rubbing (found texture frottage) and chine colle with our painterly techniques for making a dynamic series of archival monoprints and monotypes on a variety of papers including kozo and cotton in color, black and white. 6 hours per day will be spent printing with instruction, and a 24-hour studio space within the castle’s horse stables adjacent to the gardens will be open for printing. I and my studio assistant will be available as a resource throughout.

      Dina is a sculptor and printmaker, and began teaching with UMaine’s Hutchinson Center in 2004. She runs the Post Office Studio Workshop in Belfast, Maine and holds a BA in Human Ecology from College of the Atlantic, an MA in Arts and Art Education from Columbia University and an MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts from Goddard College.

Travel costs are not included in the residency award.

      Zygote Intern SWAP

      An additional component of the ZPASS will be the Intern Residency Award. This program will be offered once a year in the summer for a period of two weeks. Zygote Press currently offers internships to college students from around the country who wish to learn more about printmaking and/or non-profits arts administration. Award recipients will receive: a two-week stay in the ZPASS loft (live-work accommodations), a stipend of $100, as well as full access to the print shop during their residency, when not involved with intern activities. In exchange, Interns will commit to 15 service hours per week for their exchange.

      Through the Residency Award, Interns will have the opportunity to work closely with visiting artists, contract printers and work with Zygote staff on special projects during their stay. In addition, they will learn the administrative skills needed to work in non-profit administration while being provided with time to create their own work. This valuable skill is often overlooked in Visual Arts Degree programs and it often takes artists many years to learn how to balance the skills of making a living while creating their artwork.

      The Detroit Print Exchange
      http://www.detroitprintexchange.com

      Theme: the time we cannot meet.
      Edition: 25 (20 returned)
      Paper Size: 11″ x 14″
      Mediums: Any 2-d Medium
      Cost: $20.00
      Submission Deadline: December 31, 2012
      Notification of Selected Artists: January 31, 2013

      WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
      The Detroit Print Exchange is the first in (hopefully many) annual juried trade of art prints. Artists are each invited to submit an edition of 25 prints and in turn receive a complete portfolio of 20 prints from all 20 contributing artists.

      In truth, the The Detroit Print Exchange is a chance to redefine what it means to be a young emerging artist, to prove that good things really do come in small packages, and to build connections between artists working around the country. The hope is to present the final portfolio in an exhibition and sell limited edition reproductions of the final portfolio, as well as creating an online Portfolio that viewers can access via the internet.

      The Challenge is to create an edition of 25 prints in response to the words “ the time we cannot meet”. Cryptic yet straight forward the words resonate with missed opportunity and honesty. Today is there truly a time when two people cannot meet? Has technology removed time from how we interact? Explore, create and redefine.

      The portfolio culminates in both a physical show in a premier Detroit gallery as well as an online gallery.

      WHAT TO SUBMIT
      A Power point or multiple page PDF document that contains the following

      +Submit a Portfolio of 8-10 examples of previous 2-D works for Jury
      file names must be as follows
      Lastname_1of10.jpg

      The Detroit Print Exchange
      http://www.detroitprintexchange.com

      Theme: the time we cannot meet.

      Edition: 25 (20 returned)
      Paper Size: 11″ x 14″
      Mediums: Any 2-d Medium
      Cost: $20.00
      Submission Deadline: January 5, 2013
      Notification of Selected Artists: January 31, 2013

      WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
      The Detroit Print Exchange is the first in (hopefully many) annual juried trade of art prints. Artists are each invited to submit an edition of 25 prints and in turn receive a complete portfolio of 20 prints from all 20 contributing artists.

      In truth, the The Detroit Print Exchange is a chance to redefine what it means to be a young emerging artist, to prove that good things really do come in small packages, and to build connections between artists working around the country. The hope is to present the final portfolio in an exhibition and sell limited edition reproductions of the final portfolio, as well as creating an online Portfolio that viewers can access via the internet.

      The Challenge is to create an edition of 25 prints in response to the words “ the time we cannot meet”. Cryptic yet straight forward the words resonate with missed opportunity and honesty. Today is there truly a time when two people cannot meet? Has technology removed time from how we interact? Explore, create and redefine.

      The portfolio culminates in both a physical show in a premier Detroit gallery in June 2013, and in New York City in September 2013 as well as an online gallery.

      Participants will be selected based on a portfolio of previous work, artist statement and CV. Artists will receive notification of acceptance into the exchange January 31, 2013, spaces are limited.

      WHAT TO SUBMIT
      A Power point or multiple page PDF document that contains the following

      +Submit a Portfolio of 8-10 examples of previous 2-D works for Jury. Multiple jpgs will not be accepted, only PDF or PowerPoint

      +Submit Artist Statement and CV as .pdf

      +Pay 20 dollar Submission Fee via Paypal or on our website
      Payments can be sent to
      Detroitprintexchange@gmail.com

      Learn to create beautiful color etchings…fast!

      The traditional method of multiple-plate, color intaglio yields beautiful (and desirable) results, though it is time and labor intensive. Multiple plates must be created to carry inks of different colors, which are then printed one at a time. DIGITAGLIO! is an innovative, new workshop that combines traditional copper plate etching with archival digital printing. Through expert instruction, this workshop will guide participants through the process of etching a single plate and producing the color flats with state of the art digital technology. Whether you are trying etching for the first time or you just need to recharge your creative batteries, this workshop will provide you with the experience you need to make great color prints. Topics will include plate prep, etching & aquatint, digital scanning and Photoshop, press prep, and archival printing. Participants will also have time for social activities, sightseeing, and shopping. DIGITAGLIO! is open to serious artists of all experience levels (ages 18+) and is limited to 20 participants.

      Announcing Renaissance Press Summer Workshops in copper plate photogravure, photopolymer gravure, and platinum / palladium printing. The crossover between printmaking, photography and photographic printmaking has become an essential component of many Universities and contemporary artists studio practice. Learning the techniques is often a frustrating, time consuming and expensive ordeal. An essential component of these processes is the creation of inkjet film. Without a matrix properly crafted for the process the end result is often at best disappointing. Each workshop comprehensively covers crafting digital negatives or positives specifically for the process. Paul Taylor, Director of Renaissance Press personally teaches the workshops. He has over thirty years of experience with photographic printmaking processes and teaches in the Printmaking Department at The Rhode Island School of Design. The workshop is ideal for both students and educators. Comprehensive tutorials detailing the materials covered in the workshop are provided. Post workshop consultation is readily available.

      Workspace Residency Program

      With a focus on experimentation and collaboration, Dieu Donné founded the Workspace Program in 1990 to provide emerging New York State based artists with the opportunity to explore hand papermaking and to utilize its processes to produce a body of work. In this unique program, artists work collaboratively with master papermakers, which is essential to providing artists an opportunity to create work in a medium that is outside of their traditional practice.

      Artists apply for the Workspace Program residency through an online application form (available June 1-June 30, 2013), a current resume, and up to 10 images of their work. A changing panel of curators, critics, and art professionals select finalists based on the quality of work samples. These individuals are then interviewed by the Dieu Donné artistic staff for selection of the final residency artists.

      The Workspace Program is open to emerging artists who live and work in New York State. Artists from all disciplinary and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Applications will not be accepted from students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate degree programs during the program year (July 2013 – June 2014). Applicants must be New York State residents and must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. Applications are only accepted via our online application; please do not mail or e-mail application materials.

      The Dieu Donné Workspace Program residency includes introduction to the medium and process, 5 days in the studio with a dedicated papermaking collaborator, an exhibition opportunity in the Dieu Donné ground floor gallery, and digital documentation of all the work created during the residency. Each artist is paired with a master papermaker creating a unique collaborative experience where a new medium can be quickly learned and put into practice. Experimentation is highly encouraged throughout the residency.

      The Workspace Program provides annual residencies to New York State artists to create new work in handmade paper. The program encourages emerging artists to explore the creative possibilities inherent in the hand papermaking process, to develop this medium as a contemporary art form.
