    PRINTERS IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM

    The Newark Print Shop is excited to offer a keyholder residency to 3 artists for 6 months culminating in a group exhibition. Resident artists have unlimited access to facilities at the shop to explore and engage with fine art printmaking processes in order to expand their artistic practice. In exchange for unlimited access to the space, residents attend our weekly open studio Print Club to assist participants and first time printers. Through this exchange, printers in residence further enhance their printmaking skills through education while immersing themselves in the ever expanding art community that frequents the shop during open studio sessions.
