The Fellowship enables the artist to participate in Ink Shop exhibitions and portfolio exchanges, and to partake in all aspects of The Ink Shop’s day-to-day management. The Fellow helps with exhibition programs and covers some shop hours.The next Fellowship begins May 15, 2024 and ends February 15, 2025. The Fellow will be offered a stipend of $2000 and all the benefits and privileges of a Printmaker Associate. The Fellow may teach workshops and/or edition for other artists (for which one could be paid additionally as an independent contractor). The Ink Shop will provide technical advice, guidance, and assistance in production and use of equipment. For the month of February 2024 the Fellow will have the opportunity to present a Solo show.

H. Peter Kahn (1921 – 1997) is fondly remembered by generations of Cornell University students and by members of the Ithaca community as a man whose life was dedicated to the arts of fine printing and the handmade book. A prolific typographer, painter, illustrator, and book designer, the German-born artist lived in Ithaca for forty years. Regarding the Kahn Fellowship, his widow, Ruth Stiles Gannett Kahn, says, “It is an affirmation of Peter’s enthusiasm for graphic arts and his own life as a teacher.”
