The Artist-in-Residence Program at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking offers established and emerging artists an opportunity to realize printmaking projects by providing time, privacy, equipment, and a creative environment. The residency provides uninterrupted time to produce a body of work and a supportive atmosphere for creative growth and development in traditional and innovative printmaking techniques. Artists can create an edition, explore new mediums, or otherwise advance their printmaking oeuvre. It is hoped that competition for the residency will stimulate original and inventive proposals for work that artists might not otherwise attempt.
