Winter/Spring Workshops & Programs

The Center for Contemporary Printmaking has just published the 2015 Winter/Spring Workshop Brochure. CCP was established to support and encourage serious, emerging and professional artists in the creation of original prints.  In our latest publication, we are highlighting our higher level Master Classes and Special Programs in the front of the brochure. We also have carefully selected course offerings that will appeal to all levels of aspiring artists including lithography, etching, collagraph, linoleum block printing, silkscreen, bookmaking, and monotype, among other techniques.

CCP has evolved into a printmaking facility providing first-rate workshops, classes and master classes that are unequalled in other facilities throughout the United States and farther afield. 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of our doors opening.  To view the online listings of course offerings for 2015, click here.

Exhibition Opportunities

CCP is excited to offer several upcoming exhibition opportunities. The first is our2014 Cash and Carry Holiday Show, where members will have the opportunity to offer their works for purchase just when people are looking to find original works of art at reasonable prices.  Unframed works must be 22" x 30" or smaller, and will be hung using clips provided by the Center. Framed works should measure no more than 36" in any direction and be ready-to-hang. Works should be dropped off at the Center on Monday, December 15. As works sell, they will be taken home by buyers and additional works will replace them. Works under $500 are preferred, artists receive 50% of sale price and 50% will go to the support programs at the Center.  Entries limited to 2 per person.

The second opportunity arrives at the beginning of the new year with Kindred, our annual Members' Show. This exhibition is an exploration of family and the varied ways that we define it. Submitted works of art might deal with the complicated networks of dependence and support, identity and history, shared experience and unconditional love embedded in those familial relationships. This exhibition will explore how family experiences have influenced our lives and how we, at the same time, resist, reject or embrace it to build anew.  Works must be received by January 5, 2015. For more information, download the prospectus here.
CCP is dedicated to not only showcasing high quality original prints, but also to giving our members and the print community the opportunity to exhibit their works of art.

Curatorial Program – Innovators Grant 2015

Curatorial Program – Innovators Grant 2015
Call for Submissions!
Following our aim to develop new strategies in curatorial practice and beyond, Node Center for Curatorial Studies Berlin is thrilled to announce the launch of theCuratorial program  Innovators Grant 2015, a new two-month long program to develop experimental learning methods in fields outside of art.
Dates: Autumn 2015 (exact dates to be confirmed)
Application deadline: 15 February, 2015
Duration: 2 months
Number of participants: 6
For further details and essential information please read here.
Through our Curatorial Program  Innovators Grant we will bring together six risky thinkers/makers willing to expand the use of art and curation. With the idea of looking out from an art perspective, we will explore through the Program how art practices can enrich and provide practical uses to education.
The Program will be held in Berlin, Germany, focusing on art-thinking rather than the art-object, applying the possibilities of art to education in other fields. By art-thinking, we are referring to strategies of knowledge that question the everyday, using intuitive, creative and poetic approaches to find different access points or pathways to known topics. 
For a two-month period we will work intensively through brainstorming sessions, research, adventures and experimentation. There is no set final outcome to the Program, we will instead collaborate together to develop imaginative manuals or strategic guides. It will be a hands-on program!
Node Center is an art organization focused on curatorial practice. We work to expand and challenge the current limits of art and curation to stimulate different ways of approaching these practices. During the past three years we have held eight curatorial residencies which drew together groups of curators to provide basic practical and theoretical skills. Each residency resulted in an exhibition and publication. We also have an ever-growing platform of online courses, bringing together participants worldwide. Now we take it a step further with the Curatorial Program – Innovators Grant.
 If you think this Program suits you, please check for requirements here before applying:
