February Workshop Theme- It’s All About Love! Screen print your own cards and prints

February 14th
Instructor: Ashley Limes
This month’s workshop is all about the things we love! This two hour workshop will provide you with the opportunity to learn how to screen print cards and prints reflecting what you love. Families can work together and collaborate to make something truly special and unique. Each participant will walk away with either a print or cards that they created. Suitable for ages 6 & up.

Quarter Sheet Challenge Artist: Leslie A. Grossman


Leslie A. Grossman has accepted the Second State Press Quarter Sheet Challenge! Her prints will be on view for the month of February.

“Transfer” is a perfect example of how I approach printmaking –  with a slightly tongue-in-cheek commentary on the one-off. It’s also evidence of my interest in the ways one material/thing communicates with or impacts another; and how printmaking – in the most rudimentary sense – is simply a transfer of information.

Each month we will feature a new artist in this on going exhibition series. The one requirement? Prints must be quarter sheet prints (15″ x 11″). Email zlindenberger[at]secondstatepress[dot]org for more information.

Member Shop Orientations Every Second Thursday

It’s always difficult to start in a new shop and get your printing flow.  Different equipment, new people, and where the heck is the tarleton anyway?!  SSP wants to make it easier for you to get started and get printing.  Every Second Thursday, Second State Press we will hold shop orientations for members.  All are welcome to attend each month.

Join us 6-9 PM to get a tour of the shop, have your printing questions answered, and meet other members.
