Shop talk, answers to your FAQs, and a peek behind the scenes of an artist-run fine art gallery in Park Slope

What happens in a printshop when there’s more than one print maker?

You usually think of visual artists working alone in their studios, coaxing out of their heads and hearts their unique visions of the world, mucking around with their materials to come up with personal marks, the physical manifestations of their abstract visions.  However, it turns out that for some visual artists collaboration is an important part of their practice.

Learn more about pros/cons of collaboration with our member Gail Flanery as she and other panelists discuss their experiences of working with other artists in the printshop:

This panel will explore the nature of some of these partnerships and the many approaches, concerns, and issues that are part of this process. For more information click here.
