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 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 withKindred, 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.
Tuesdays, 10am - 2pm 3-week Workshop, limited to 8
The emphasis of this weekly workshop will be on miniature printmaking. Under the guidance of Heather Varco, artists will incorporate the composition, medium and techniques of classic printmaking, including Monotype, Collagraph and Intaglio, into the miniature size. Participants in this workshop will receive one free entry into theBiennial International Miniature Print Showat CCP in 2015.
