Self Help Graphics & Art’s Annual Print Fair & Exhibition is a highly anticipated one-day only opportunity for art lovers to acquire new, limited edition, fine art prints created by dozens of artists at Self Help Graphics & Art between 2014-2015. The Annual Print Fair & Exhibition features serigraphs, monoprints, as well as, new relief and intaglio print editions.

Art lovers of all kinds – from casual admirers to serious collectors – are invited to attend this highly anticipated showcase of artists that have participated through Self Help Graphics & Art’s Professional Printmaking Program.

The Professional Printmaking Program is the artistic foundation of Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG). The acclaimed Professional Printmaking Program has produced over 750 editions and offers artists of various experiences the opportunity to create limited edition silkscreen serigraphs and monoprints through a peer-led approach that is dedicated to providing a nurturing environment that supports our artists’ creativity and careers.

As one of the most recognized Latino printmaking centers in America, SHG is committed to taking more innovative approaches in everything it does. We have been dedicated to working with artists in exploring the juxtaposition of traditional and non-traditional printmaking processes and to the development of content that is both culturally relevant and investigative. As is our tradition and mission, emerging artists will be central in helping us experiment in each atelier.
