Recent projects realized at Sol Print Studios have attracted attention in the art world and manifested themselves as exhibitions. First Impressions at Stevenson University was reviewed here by the Baltimore City Paper and Noetics, curated by Helen Frederick, at The Cosmos Club in Washington, DC presented opportunities for Sol Print artists to sell work and dialogue with their contemporaries.
We offer artists project-based, guided studio time in our print-shop. Our residencies are an opportunity for growth within your artistic practice; many of our artists have acquired new venues for exhibition with the portfolios they create in our classes.
These residencies are an immersive experience where all energies work to help the artist best develop their ideas in well executed prints. The duration of the program is three to four days of intensive work and collaboration.
- In the upcoming year Sol Print Studios will be partnering with Bmoreart.com, to keep readers informed about the work produced in our classes and our upcoming events. This presents a new opportunity for our prints to be publicly viewed and potentially sold.
