artists on Wednesday, September 14 from 6-8pm. The exhibition will be on view

"This
exhibition represents recent works from current Keyholder Residency Program
artists and participants in the Studio Rental Program. These programs provide
NY area artists access to both
affordable
facilities and a close knit print community; both of which are essential to
self publishing printmakers. The exhibited works are a great example of both
the range of techniques and experimentation possible at the shop and the high
caliber of work being produced there. As a former Keyholder, it is exciting to
see the continuation of these programs and the expansion into the beautiful
Midtown facilities.   It continues to be a muchneeded contribution to
printmaking in New York City and the print community at large." -Glen Baldridge
