New Provincetown Print Project


To celebrate the important role of printmaking in the history of the Provincetown art colony, as well as its central place in the artistic lives of many who have held the Visual Arts Fellowship, a number of artists and master printers supportive of the Work Center are joining forces to create a limited-edition portfolio of prints. This effort will revive Michael Mazur’s New Provincetown Print Project, which from 1990 to 1994 brought renowned artists to Provincetown to create portfolios now included in the collections of numerous American museums. Participating artists Nicole Eisenman, Red Grooms, Jennifer Packer, Jack Pierson, Kiki Smith, and John Walker will work with master printers Tony Kirk, Jennifer Melby, Andrew Mockler, James Stroud, and Rob Swainston. The linen folio of 6 artists’ prints will be available in an edition addition of 20. Proceeds raised from the Project’s sales will support the 50th Anniversary Campaign.
