About Seattle Print Arts

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 also sponsors a printmaking scholarship at Seattle's Pratt Fine Arts Center, the Larry Sommers Art Fellowship, and the Mini Money Grants(pdf).

We hope you can join us!

Seattle Print Arts is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

Posting Announcements



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 and please use your name as the filename, ie: jane_doe.jpg. Email (news at seattleprintarts.org) 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.

Thank you for sending in your announcements and for being part of our vibrant print arts community!
