IPCNY’s New Prints Program was created to bring selected artists’ prints from the widest possible range of sources to the attention of the viewing public. The exhibitions feature prints in a variety of formats and mediums produced in the preceding twelve months. This immediacy makes every presentation of the New Prints Program unique, because each exhibition is a window into what a wide range of artists are thinking about at a specific moment in time. Through this ongoing forum for exhibiting prints by artists at all stages of their careers, IPCNY continues its work to enlarge audiences for fine art prints.

“I have been lucky to be in several exhibitions at IPCNY. As a fabric artist using printmaking to make large installations IPCNY offers me a unique place to exhibit my work. Shockingly, this is the only exhibition space in the New York City area devoted exclusively to printmaking. With more and more artists focusing on printmaking as an art form unto itself and one not solely defined by editions, IPCNY fulfills a major role in the contemporary art landscape.”

Desirée Alvarez, Artist

“The International Print Center of New York is one of the only spaces where an emerging artist can exhibit their work next to some of the greats in the field. Unlike many other non- profit spaces you don’t have to pay a fee for the privilege of having your slides looked at, it’s open to anyone and I often encourage my students to apply.”

Amze Emmons

“Participating in IPCNY’s New Print Shows has been an exciting and rewarding experience, bringing my work to new exposure and recognition. IPCNY exhibits showcase the diversity of contemporary printmaking, and have given me the unique opportunity to show my work in an international context.”

Hope Dector, Artist

“As I walked around the galleries in New York with my IPCNY invitations in hand I kept hearing the same comments:  ‘The IPCNY; they do good work!’ I was thrilled to be included and somewhat surprised as my new work is on paper but not a traditional print… This show, the diverse work included, and IPCNY’s work to celebrate the new has helped inspire my continued path to create and collect work that doesn’t fit a category (yet).”

Torrie Groening, Artist

“My experience there has given my career a real boost and I hope to be lucky enough to be selected to show there again.”

Jenny Robinson, Artist

“I love the sense of community that I experience when I walk into an exhibition opening at IPCNY. The feeling reminds me of being in a shared printmaking studio, surrounded by friendly faces who all love prints as much as I do. The gallery at IPCNY provides a warm, beautiful space for people involved in all aspects of the printmaking world to gather, view and discuss the latest, most innovative printmaking being created today.”

Sarah Nicole Phillips, Artist

“It was an honor to to exhibit with such greats as John Baldessari, as well as some very talented newcomers. Being a young artist who has worked and lived in New York City for four years, I fully understand the value of an organization such as yours. IPCNY has allowed me a great start in a sector of the art world that is extremely competitive. With my placement in the recent New Prints Benefit Auction, Winter 2008, I have garnered much interest in my work, and have made 3 sales and counting as a result of the exhibition.”

Zev David Deans, Artist

The democratic manner in which IPCNY’s New Prints Program is curated, results in facinating shows where emerging artists can be shown alongside established, blue chip artists.

Sarah Phillips, Artist

“Congratulations on filling a gaping hole in the art world so well. Those exhibitions are wonderful rare things to be treasured.”

Keith Peoples, Collector, Washington DC
