PRINTERS IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM

NEXT DEADLINE: March 15, 2019 @ Midnight
Electronic submissions only to PIR@newarkprintshop.org
[Subject: PIR 2019]

THE NEWARK PRINT SHOP is excited to offer a keyholder residency to 3 artists for 6 months culminating in a group exhibition. The residency period is: APRIL 1 – SEPT 30, 2019.

THE KEYHOLDER RESIDENCY is offered to professional artists not necessarily working in printmaking as their primary medium but who would benefit from the opportunity to explore printmaking.

In exchange for unlimited access to the space, PIR’s are required to assist during our weekly open studio Print Club to assist participants and first time printers. Through this exchange, PIR’s further enhance their printmaking skills through education while immersing themselves in the ever expanding art community that frequents the shop during Print Club on Wednesdays from 6-10pm.


To apply, please fill out this form: PIR APPLICATION – 2019
