IPCNY’s New Prints Program is an ongoing series of juried exhibitions of brand new prints presented four times each season in our Chelsea gallery. The New Prints Program has significantly impacted the field of printmaking by bringing to the public a range of excellent new work from an astounding diversity of sources. With the opening of its space in September 2000, IPCNY created a permanent, non-commercial open venue for artists, emerging and established, to exhibit their most recent print projects. Some 900 exceptional contemporary prints have been presented in twenty-nine exhibitions, illustrating a wide variety of print techniques, from etchings and woodcuts on paper, to three-dimensional and site-specific work, to the most current digital processes. By establishing this unique forum for exhibiting prints by artists at all stages of their careers, IPCNY moves forward with its mission to enlarge audiences for the visual arts.
A New Prints Touring Program, launched in 2006, has taken selected New Prints shows around the country, to venues in Chicago, South Carolina and Virginia.
International Print Center New York is a non-profit institution founded to promote the greater appreciation and understanding of the fine art print worldwide. Through innovative programming, it fosters a climate for the enjoyment, examination and serious study of artists’ prints, from the old master to the contemporary. IPCNY offers its members a program of workshop and gallery visits, artists’ talks and other special events, and has established an informational website and Information Center available to the public at the gallery. IPCNY depends upon public and private donations to support its programs.
