CCP Artist Services

Edition Printing at CCP

Artists can arrange to collaborate with and have editions printed by Associate Printer Christopher Shore, and by guest printers skilled in specific techniques. CCP facilities and printers are equipped to print in all methods. Please email Julyen or Chris for pricing and scheduling, or call CCP at 203.899.7999.


Artist-in-Residence Program

The Artist-in-Residence Program at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking (CCP) offers emerging and established artists an opportunity to pursue their printmaking projects by providing time, privacy, equipment, and a creative environment. The residency provides uninterrupted time to produce a body of work and a supportive atmosphere for creative growth and development in traditional and innovative printmaking techniques.

A printmaking residency is an ideal opportunity for experimentation and collaboration. Artists can expand their work practices, explore new mediums, create an edition or otherwise advance their printmaking skills. Participants may work independently or with one of CCP’s printers (for an additional fee). It is hoped that the residency opportunity will stimulate original and inventive work that artists might not otherwise attempt.
