Artists can become a Printmaker Associate by uploading a resume and samples of his/her work to be juried by the Executive Committee. Candidates must show competence in one or more aspects of printmaking and be willing to take an active part in the shop.
Printmaker Associates receive benefits including unlimited access to the shop (as a key holder), eligibility for inclusion in shows both in our gallery spaces, as well as elsewhere. Printmaker Associates are able to participate in exchange portfolios and book projects, receive a 15% discount on all workshops, our print bins and print drawers, have possibilities to participate in exchange exhibitions, and receive discounts on prints, paper and books.
Printmaker Associates attend general meetings, act as shop manager on a rotating basis, & serve on a committee. Qualified printmakers may participate in editioning for others and have the opportunity to offer workshops, both on a fee basis.
Artist Associates are for newcomers artists and are not yet familiar with printmaking. They are welcome during our open hours. With this level of membership, you do not have to have a portfolio review.
