Seattle Print Arts is an association of artists, arts professionals and collectors who have an avid interest in the expanding field of print arts and an appreciation of the print media. Our mission is to foster intellectual and artistic dialogue, serve as a resource for news in the field of printmaking, forge links between artists, and serve as a base for a variety of activities that focus on the print arts.
Since its formation in January 2000, Seattle Print Arts has organized symposia, lectures, print exchanges, demonstrations, and several print exhibits, including two international exchange exhibitions.
Seattle Print Arts is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
Come to the party and get together with other print artists for art and food.
If you are still interested in participating there will be on-site registration for current Seattle Print Arts Members for the few remaining slots. This is a great opportunity to present your work, get some exposure and practical experience.

Announcing the Larry Sommers Art Fellowship 2013 Call for Submissions.
Deadline: June 1st
Seattle Print Arts is pleased to announce the fourth annual fellowship in memory of our friend and colleague, Larry Sommers. The purpose of the Larry Sommers Art Fellowship is to support artistic excellence in the areas of print arts, book arts and works on or of paper. The award will provide a stipend of $2,000 to be used by the chosen artist to produce new work or to support a project in progress. The selection of the artist will be based on the artistic merit of the work, determined by a panel of arts professionals working with the Seattle Print Arts Fellowship Committee.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this very special fund and made this award possible!

To Post An Announcement
If you are a member of Seattle Print Arts, we will post your announcement in the weekly newsletter and on the website.
Please send us your announcements about your upcoming exhibitions. We would also like to know about any upcoming print related classes, equipment for sale, studios for rent, or calls for printmakers.
Please send information as text and no all-caps and no postcard announcements please. Include a separate image. Email (email@example.com) us at least one week prior to an event or as early as three weeks before.
In your email please state that you would like your announcement posted in our newsletter and on our website, so we can separate it from non-member show announcements we get.
Seattle Print Arts on Facebook
Our official website and weekly e-newsletter will still be the place to go to for information. Our Facebook page is a more informal means of communication for you and a great way for us to keep up with each other.
