The Arkansas Society of Printmakers (ASP) is a community of artists, art collectors, and supporters of the art of printmaking. Their mission is to generate greater excitement and appreciation for printmaking as a unique art form in Arkansas. The organization focuses on mentorship, professional critique, collaboration, camaraderie, exhibition, and portfolio exchange opportunities.
Printmaking is a diverse art form that is ever-evolving as it continues to integrate new technologies and approaches into its visual lexicon. While ASP values, honors, and strives to promote printmaking’s revered traditional processes (relief, intaglio, lithography, silkscreen, monotype, and book arts) we also encourage and support the integration of digital processes. ASP offers exhibition and publication opportunities to members who employ both traditional and contemporary approaches.
