Scene Wednesday: Fine Arts Work Center / Open Print

March 30 / 16

Morning all! I’m continuing on with the Fine Arts Work Center and their Summer Workshop. You’ve already read about it in the last few posts. There is a new master printer series. Read on….


cred: Fine Arts Work Center



This year, the Work Center is pleased to present a new series of printmaking workshops featuring Master Printers ANTONY KIRK, ANDREW MOCKLER, CATHERINE MOSLEY, JAMES STROUD, and BOB SWAINSTON. With an emphasis on mentorship and critique, these workshops will be held in the Work Center’s Michael Mazur Print studio, a state-of-the-art facility that remains one of the best in the region. Here, artists continue to explore the print medium in a facility developed by one of Provincetown’s most revered painters and printmakers.

Printmaking workshops will also be taught by acclaimed printmakers DANIEL HEYMAN, FRED LIANG, VICKY TOMAYKO, and BERT YARBOROUGH.

The print shop is equipped with two etching presses, a lithography press, facilities for etching and silkscreen, and a state-of-the-art ventilation system. The American French Tool etching press has a bed that measures 70″ x 40″. The Brand Press from Robert Motherwell’s studio in Provincetown has a bed size of 46″ x 24″. The shop is fully equipped with tools and materials, oil-based inks, a large selection of brayers, and four, ten-inch rollers each with a diameter of five inches.

The lithography press is a Fuchs and Lang with a bed size of 24″ x 45″ and can be used for both stone and plate lithography. The shop is equipped with supplies necessary for producing high quality lithographs. There are seven gray lithographic stones. The shop has silkscreen materials for work up to 22″ x 30″ and is water-based only.



WEEK 4 – JULY 3-8

$400 + $75 materials fee

During this week, space will be opened in the print shop for experienced printers who have previously attended printmaking classes at the Fine Arts Work Center. Students will work on their own independent projects and will have 24-hour access to the studio.

Remember the Summer Workshop Program is June 12 – August 26, 2016. Go to the site above to get the details. More about the workshop will be coming soon.
