Remarque/New Grounds Print Workshop & Gallery invites printmakers and photographers from around the world to submit work for our exhibition, “Re-Emergence! Explorations in Photography and Printmaking” to be held at Remarque Print Workshop and Gallery in Albuquerque, NM from July 9th – August 28th, 2021
Call For Entries: Remarque Residency 2021
Session Dates: August 2-6, 2021 and October 18-22, 2021
Application Deadline: May 31, 2021
Remarque Print Workshop is offering an opportunity for 12 printmakers (six for each of the two sessions) from across the state and country to come to sunny Albuquerque, NM to use our non-toxic printmaking facility for one of our week-long residencies.
Our goal in offering this residency is to provide printmakers/artists who may not have access to presses or studio equipment with the opportunity for an intense week of artistic production. We hope to bring six diverse printmakers together for a week, in order to foster their creative process and to forge new relationships with printmakers from different parts of the country/world.
Applicants are expected to have prior printmaking knowledge but need not be familiar with the non-toxic Akua inks and etching process.
Selected artists will have complete and 24 hour access to our 3,000 sq. foot studio including six Takach presses, use of our Akua inks, exposure unit, plate cutter, etching tanks etc. Artists are expected to purchase their own paper and plates and any extra materials.

Announcing our first online demo series!
Gel Plate Printing for Beginners, with Terry Garrett
We're so excited to announce the release of our first-ever online demo! In this two-part demo, printmaker Terry Garrett demonstrates the basics of gel plate printing and explains how to push the medium further with techniques such as ghost prints, stencils, found object printing, and much more! Gel-plate printing is a versatile, non-toxic form of printmaking that can be done entirely at home, with materials widely available at craft stores. Terry's free-form, explorative teaching style encourages experimentation and play. The resulting prints are many-layered and complex, and can function as stand-alone monotypes, backgrounds for further experimentation, or source paper for collages. The demo is just $50 for 3 months of access, and we've created a facebook group where students can connect with each other, share the work they create, and ask Terry any questions they might have!
Remarque Print Workshop is the only non-toxic professional print workshop in Albuquerque. Remarque is an internationally recognized institution dedicated to providing artists with press access, classes, exhibition opportunities and other printmaking related services. Formerly New Grounds, it has been in operation for 20 years and remains dedicated to providing gallery and workshop opportunities for printmakers in all disciplines.
Hours: We are now open Friday & Saturday, 10 am - 6 pm, and also by appointment (please provide one day's notice via email -- we'd love to meet with you!)
