Remarque was established in 1996 as one of the world's first completely non-toxic print workshops. The award-winning print institution was first operated in Albuquerque's rural South Valley and moved to its current 4,000 square foot location in historic Nob Hill in March 2000. Remarque was formerly called New Grounds Print Workshop until 2016, when the original founder Regina Held sold the workshop to four local printmakers: Lincoln Draper, Jessica Krichels, Mary Sundstrom, and Jessica Weybright. With six Takach etching presses and the facilities to create etching, photogravure, monotype, and relief prints, Remarque offers the most diverse printmaking opportunities in the Albuquerque area.
Remarque's mission is to provide a safe, non-toxic facility for printmakers, to provide education opportunities, and to support and promote local and international artists.
Education: Remarque offers a wide variety of classes year-round that allow printmakers of all experience levels to experiment and grow. Additionally, Remarque hosts two annual printmaking residencies and a vibrant internship program.
The Galleries: Our two gallery spaces exhibit a wide variety of original works on paper by our studio members, local artists, and printmakers from around the world. Exhibitions generally rotate once a month, with an opening reception on the first Friday of each month.
The Workshop: The core of our facility is the membership program, which provides experienced artists with affordable access and flexible hours. In addition, we offer press rental at hourly rates to non-members. Both members and non-members can take advantage of our expertise in custom printing, printing assistance, and plate exposure for photogravure plates.
