Inky Paper Press Retrospective - Summer 2016
Inky Paper Press provides an opportunity for students and community members to meet visiting artists and experience the artistic and technical processes of artists working with a variety of printmaking media. During week-long visits each artist presents a free public lecture, produces an edition of artists prints in the studio, and interacts with students and community members. In some cases the artists produce variable editions, or multiple smaller bodies or editions of work. Students act as studio assistants aiding in production, but also interact in smaller groups with the visiting artists. The visiting artist takes a portion of each edition and leaves some prints for subscribers who support their residency. The affordable and accessible “democratic” print has been reinforced through the Inky Paper Press.
The twenty year old Inky Paper Press was modeled on a successful and established visiting artist program at the University of Dallas and was initiated as an effort to provide a self-sustaining visiting artist program. As funds to support University of Wyoming visiting artists have increased, finding subscribers has became less critical and allowed artists that make outstanding work with printmaking processes without necessarily focusing on editioned works. The support of Esther and Paul Clay continues to provide a solid base for Inky Paper Press Visiting Artists. All participants have a second Wyoming experience through a partnership with the Jentel Artist Residency that allows Inky Paper Artists to return to Wyoming to focus on their work in the residency studio.
We hope you will enjoy this collection of some of the works produced over the last two decades. All work is available for sale to support Inky Paper Press. Please contact Mark Ritchie (Marrit@uwyo.edu) for more details.
