The Lower East Side Printshop, established in 1968, is a New York City non-profit art center that supports contemporary artists of all creative backgrounds by offering them studio space, career services, and expertise in printmaking to develop new work. Artists can experiment, explore new ideas, and collaborate with experienced master printers to create important new work and broaden their practice in a supportive and professional environment. In addition, a diverse audience of art enthusiasts and professionals alike can learn about and collect prints in our classes, lectures, and exhibitions.

The Printshop is the largest openly accessible print studio in the city. It offers independent and collaborative residencies for artists, free and fee-based, contract printing services for small and large publishers, educational opportunities in all aspects of the print field and at all levels of expertise, and affordable collecting opportunities.

Lower East Side Printshop / Keyholder Residency

Mon Mar 02, 2009 00:00

The Keyholder Residency Program offers emerging artists free 24-hour access to professional printmaking facilities to develop new work and explore printmaking as a medium. Residencies are one year long and take place in the Printshop’s shared Artists’ Studio. Facilities are available for intaglio, relief, monoprint, waterbased silkscreen techniques, digital processes, and other techniques that employ the tools at hand.

Keyholders work independently, in a productive atmosphere alongside other contemporary artists. They are not required to have any printmaking experience; facilities can be used for creative work in various mediums. Basic instruction in printmaking is available for new Keyholders and while technical assistance is not included in the program, it is available at additional cost. Participation is limited and competitive. Applications are evaluated by a committee of artists, curators, and critics based on the quality of submitted artwork. Artists without a studio space are encouraged to apply.

Keyholder Residency includes:
• 24-hour studio access
• $500 stipend
• storage space
• basic supplies (newsprint, blotters, solvents, cleaners)
• 20% discount on all Printshop classes
• free digital documentation of selected works produced during the residency
• inclusion in the Printshop's permanent art and image collection
• promotion in the Printshop's quarterly newsletter and website
• opportunity to show new work in exhibitions, open studio events, and other public events presented by the Printshop

• Only legal US residents may apply
• Former recipients of the Keyholder Residency, Fully Sponsored Keyholder Residency, or Scholarship Keyholder Residency are not eligible
• Students enrolled in any kind of degree program at the time of the residency are not eligible
• Keyholder Residencies are limited to emerging artists only. The Printshop defines emerging artists as under-recognized and under-represented artists at early stages in their careers
