Sustaining Creative Strategies in Printmaking

Jul 4 - 8, 2022

9AM-5PM

Concept

This unique opportunity for advanced printmakers creates a forum for dialog about how to curate your practice to push your work into a strong direction. Artists are invited to work on self-directed projects in the printmaking area of their choosing while receiving technical support in tandem with critical feedback. Opportunities for technical demonstrations, group critique and one-on-one mentorship make up the structure of this Master Class. *Brian Shure will be present for the entire duration of the workshop; Elliott Hundley will join daily from 1-5PM.

To attend a Master Class workshop, a portfolio review is due by Friday, February 11th, 2022. Instructions on how to submit your portfolio are as follows:

  • Submit digital images of your work in one single PDF (as opposed to individual JPG attachments) via email directly to the Artistic Director of Painting, Drawing and Printmaking, Liz Ferrill at lferrill@andersonranch.org
  • The single PDF must be less than 10 MB to be considered.
  • Include 10 images of 10 works with image identification that lists the title, media, dimensions and year of each image.
  • While not required, it is helpful to see an artist statement addressing the images you send.
  • Include “Advanced Portfolio Review” in the subject line of your email, as well as the title of the workshop for which you are applying.
  • Please provide a phone number where you can be reached and a link to your website.

Submissions that do not follow the requested directions will not be reviewed. To be considered, we must receive portfolios by 5 PM MST Friday, Feb. 11th, 2022. If we receive your materials after Feb. 11th, you will be considered on a space-available basis.
