New Membership Submission
New members to the Pittsburgh Print Group are accepted twice annually on October 1 and May 1.
Printmaking is a diverse art form. Although the Print Group remains open to present and future technology and its impact on printmaking techniques, for exhibition purposes, the Print Group asks that work include a printmaking process—relief, intaglio, silkscreen, lithography, monoprint, monotype, or letterpress - as central to its execution. Photographs and digital images may be used as part of a final image, but may not stand alone.
