Center for Contemporary Printmaking (CCP) AIR Program

Center for Contemporary Printmaking (CCP) AIR Program

Description 

The Artist-in-Residence Program at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking (CCP) offers emerging and established artists an opportunity to pursue their 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.
A printmaking residency is an ideal opportunity for experimentation and collaboration. Artists can expand their work practices, explore new mediums, create an edition or otherwise advance their printmaking skills. Participants may work independently or with one of CCP’s printers (for an additional fee). It is hoped that the residency opportunity will stimulate original and inventive work that artists might not otherwise attempt.

Accommodation Information 

Residencies are based in the Helen Frankenthaler Printmaking Cottage, next to CCP’s main facility. The cottage houses a printmaking studio as well as a compact, furnished, two-bedroom living space with a fully equipped kitchen, bath, and laundry. The building has central heat and air-conditioning and is wheelchair accessible.

Technical Information 

The cottage contains a Takach motorized etching press (39" x 72") and a Martech manual etching press (28" x 48"), drying rack, work tables and counters, sinks, and a light table. It has excellent light, plenty of wall space and a commercial-grade ventilation system. Small tools and basic supplies are provided. Artists may purchase other supplies such as plates, Plexiglas, paper and inks at the Center or at nearby retailers. In the two-story main building, CCP has seven intaglio presses, a Griffin lithography press, a Vandercook press, an acid room, silkscreen equipment, a paper mill, a computer design lab, and exposure units for photo-printmaking.
