Why become a member of Zea Mays Printmaking?

  • Make prints in a state of the art printmaking facility
  • Support a world reknown “green” printmaking studio
  • Become part of an amazing community of artist printmakers
  • Include your prints in our Flat File Project
  • Exhibit your work in members shows and other opportunities
  • Become inspired!

Memberships run from January – December. Memberships are by application, which are reviewed throughout the year. If we have openings, we will accept members mid-year.  Potential members need to demonstrate a basic knowledge of printmaking techniques, and a desire to work in a community with a focus on sustainable art making practices.  Taking a workshop at Zea Mays Printmaking is a great way to begin the process.
