Printing Fellowship


Past Artist Fellowship Recipients


What is it?

The Photo Center is committed to providing a home and resources for photographers. The Artist Printing Fellowship provides free hourly printing in B&W, or digital to selected artists to complete an already conceptualized project or project-in-process. Each year, Photo Center Gallery Advisory Committee will choose at least 2 artists to participate in the fellowship. Artists in the program may print at the Photo Center for 100 hours, without the hourly charge. The artist must already know how to print in whichever lab he/she is using. If the artist chooses the digital lab for their project, the printing hours will be free, however, ink fees still apply at 4 cents per square inch. Artists must supply their own paper in all labs.

Program Benefits:

Critique and editing advice is available from members of our gallery committee as new work is produced. Upon completion of the printing fellowship each artist will have a closing review with the Gallery Director, Ann Pallesen, to talk about showcasing the work the following year at the Photo Center. The artists will be contracted to talk about their work as visiting artists in Photo Center classes. The Gallery Director will also work with the artist in choosing an image from the exhibition to include in the Photo Center Print Collection. Images in the collection can be used for future exhibition possibilities or may be used in a Photo Center auction fundraising event.
