Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking Residency

Deadline: 16th April 2019

The annual Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking Residency was established in 2002 to provide artists with little or no printmaking experience the opportunity to explore a new creative medium with guidance, instruction and technical assistance from Master Printmaker Julia D'Amaro. 

Three artists are invited to the Sitka Center each October and January for an intensive two week long residency, during which they work on copper plates, using a wide variety of etching techniques. At the end of each residency Julia prints the finished plates in editions of ten to be divided equally between the artist and Sitka. The Gordon Gilkey Print Center at the Portland Art Museum and the Jordan Schnitzer Collection also receive prints from each collaboration.

Please note: This opportunity is for artists who have no prior printmaking experience.
