Dear Newark Print Shop Friends and Supporters:
2017 has been a year of transitions and an amazing year of activity for the Newark Print Shop. We kicked off the year in our new home at 54 Halsey Street in the renovated Hahne and Company Building located in Express Newark. We have been actively programming ever since our grand opening on Feb 3rd, hosting our busiest Print Clubs to date, working in schools as resident printmakers, providing studio space for dozens of keyholder members, and exhibiting four new exhibitions in printmaking. As we enter our sixth year of programming, we are excited to explore the many ways we can continue to foster a love of fine art printmaking in our hometown Newark, NJ and beyond!
To that end, we are seeking funds to purchase a used Charles Brand Etching Press. This acquisition will offer our shop an upgrade to our etching department and enable us to launch our new program SPECIAL PROJECTS IN PRINT, partnering contemporary artists with master printer Stephen McKenzie to create limited edition fine art prints. Please consider making a donation to our fundraiser and be a part of this new initiative!
In the new year, we look forward to continue our work to provide accessible and affordable printmaking workspace and to share our love of fine art print. Each of you that have entered our shop, either in its current location in the Hahnes Building, or in the previous locations on University Avenue and Broad Street, are part of the NPS family and we are thankful that you have been a part of our journey. We hope to continue to share our passion of print with you.
As we close out the year, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to our IMPRESSIONS FUNDRAISER. Your contribution will support our overall operations as a non-profit organization, as well as support the purchase of the Charles Brand Press and the launch of SPECIAL PROJECTS IN PRINT PROGRAM. In exchange for your donation, we are excited to offer you some unique hand-printed gifts listed in this campaign.
With gratitude and love,
Newark Print Shop
