Special Editions Residency Program--currently suspended--is a competitive national residency
program for emerging artists to create new work through exploration
of printmaking. The Lower East Side Printshop offers an opportunity
to complete an important new body of work in collaboration with
one of our two experienced master printers, fully sponsored by the
Artists, with or without printmaking skills, are provided with technical
assistance, financial support, time and studio space to explore
printmaking and complete a new body of work. Experimentation and
exploration of new materials and processes are welcome.
The Printshop documents the artwork digitally, in printed materials
including the annual catalogue, and on the Internet. The Printshop
also provides exposure opportunities through on- and off-site exhibitions
and studio visits. Awarded artists work alongside other emerging
and mid-career artists in the Printshop's Collaborations Studio.
• 12 day-long collaboration sessions with a master printer
during a period of three to six months, plus, production/editioning
service; independent studio access during the residency;
• All materials, full access to tools and equipment;
• up to $4,000 stipend;
• Printed and internet publicity and free slide documentation;
• Limited travel and accommodation stipends for artists who

part by grants from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governer Andrew Cuomo and New York State Legislature, NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, Lily Auchincloss Foundation, PECO Foundation, and Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation.
