Printmaking Residency 2021
Remarque Print Workshop, Albuquerque, NM
Two residency sessions: August 2 - 6 and October 18 - 22, 2021
Six (6) artists will participate in each session. Due to the cancellation of the 2020 Residency (due to Covid-19) we currently have 7 open spots for this year's Residency
Remarque Print Workshop is offering an opportunity for 12 printmakers (six for each of the two sessions) from across the state and country to come to sunny Albuquerque, NM to use our non-toxic printmaking facility for one of our week-long residencies. Applicants are expected to have prior printmaking knowledge but need not be familiar with the non-toxic Akua inks and etching process.
Selected artists will have complete and 24 hour access to our 3,000 sq. foot studio including six Takach presses, use of our Akua inks, exposure unit, plate cutter, etching tanks etc. Artists are expected to purchase their own paper and plates and any extra materials. Remarque will not provide food or lodging, but we are happy to recommend one of many affordable Air Bnb rentals close by.
Our goal in offering this residency is to provide printmakers/artists who may not have access to presses or studio equipment with the opportunity for an intense week of artistic production. We hope to bring five diverse printmakers together for a week, in order to foster their creative process and to forge new relationships with printmakers from different parts of the country/world. We are looking for printmakers who can work independently, and we welcome those artists who want to explore new techniques and processes as well as those who want the opportunity to focus intensively on one project. In addition, we entertain the possibility of having artists teach a workshop, or participate in a pop-up show and/or artist’s talk.
We ask the artists to donate one print for our gallery and to pay us an administrative fee of $100.00
There will be a brief "meet and greet" reception Sunday evening before the beginning of the Residency. Artists may work through Friday evening and clean up on Saturday. We also invite the artists to share their work and artistic vision on Tuesday evening.
To apply, please submit three to five examples of your artwork, a resume and a short bio. In addition, send us a short (less than one page) description of the project(s) you would like to work on while at Remarque. Please upload your images to Cafe. Resume, Bio and statement can be emailed separately to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have a preference for dates, please let us know. We will try to put you into the session that works best for you.
