For the past year independent curator and arts writer Sarah Tanguy has worked with Sol Print Studio (SPS) to prepare an exhibition for  artists. Sarah visited SPS last week to curate an upcoming exhibition at Hillyer Art Space in Washington, D.C. Fourteen artists have been selected to participate. 

"Under the Sun: Artists of Sol Print Studio" represents the continued growth of SPS and emphasizes the deep affinity artists, who often work in diverse mediums, have for printing processes. The artists involved with SPS come from South America, Texas, Philadelphia, Virginia and Washington, D.C. Some come from a printmaking background, while others work in jewelry, video and sound, sculpture, painting, and performance. The unique aspect of SPS is that artists develop specific projects and are guided from conception to edition through comprehensive printmaking techniques.

Please join us for the opening September 4th, 2015.

Upcoming August Workshops- August 13 - 16

Upcoming Mini-Residencies/Workshops at
We offer artists project-based, guided studio time in our print shop.  Artist and printmakers Soledad Salamé and Randi Reiss-McCormick work individually with artists to create a strong body of work, offering enough guidance and freedom to enhance their creative identity and visual language.  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 four days of intensive work and collaboration.

August 13, 14, 15, 16
10 am - 4 pm each day

Cost: $250 per day - Includes all studio materials (except for paper and solar plates), and the help of a studio assistant.
