PRINTSHOP BENEFIT 2012
Silent Auction and Reception 


Wednesday, February 29th, from 6-9pm
at 320 Studios 
320 West 37th Street, 14th floor, between 8th and 9th Avenues

The Printshop Benefit is a special annual event that ensures that our residency programs for artists are well funded and we continue to offer an outstanding range and high level of service. Proceeds directly support the Printshop's services to contemporary artists of all creative backgrounds, including free access to professional studio space, stipends, technical assistance, and career advancement services.

With the help of Samantha Rippner, we will celebrate the work of one of our resident artists, Enoc Perez, and feature one of his unique prints as a special Live Auction lot. The Silent Auction hosted by Rebecca Lax will feature artists Chris Martin, Ida Applebroog, Alison Elizabeth Taylor, Philip Taaffe, Mary Heilmann, and many others.

A preview reception will be held at the Printshop on Wednesday, February 15th, from 6-8pm featuring a selection of the silent auction works. The Preview reception is free and open to the public and the exhibition will remain on view at the Printshop through February 27th. All works are also available for viewing on our website, http://printshop.org.

Through exhibitions, publications, and educational programming the Printshop promotes better understanding and appreciation of printmaking and contemporary art. Serving more than 160 artists annually, the Printshop is the largest residency program for printmaking in the US and serves a growing, broad, and diverse audience of artists, arts professionals, students, and the general public.
