Cindi Royce Ettinger Printmaking Scholarship

Deadline: May 8, 2012 (RECEIVE)

Cindi Royce Ettinger Scholarship
Second State Press

Philadelphia, PA

Located in the Crane Arts Building, Second State Press is a communal printmaking workshop whose mission is to foster the development of ideas and innovation in printmaking by providing artists with a professional, affordable, and supportive workspace. Second State Press provides artists with a professional studio with presses, basic tools and inks, workspace for designing and executing prints, and flat files to store work and materials. By providing artists with the appropriate space and facilities, we are encouraging printmakers to explore & cultivate new work and engage in artistic dialogue with fellow peers in the Philadelphia arts community.

The Cindi Royce Ettinger Scholarship

Second State Press is pleased to offer the Cindi Royce Ettinger Scholarship to the printmaking community. Each June the studio will host an artist whose work demonstrates an uncommon grasp of the printmaking medium and an energetic approach that will likely influence future printmakers. This opportunity is meant to provide professional facilities to emerging artists who lack financial resources and access to equipment.

The candidate chosen to receive the scholarship will be granted 24 hour access to the Second State Press facility for the entire month of June, two flat file drawers in which to store paper and supplies, a modest stipend, and all critical feedback that membership in a communal print shop like SSP provides. It is requested that two prints from an edition generated during the month be donated to permanent collections belonging to CR Ettinger Studio and Second State Press.

Eligibility & Application

Printmakers that do not have access to facilities are encouraged to apply. Interested artists should submit an application packet to by May 8th.

Please submit:

1) Artist statement

2) A statement of intent that should include a brief statement establishing financial need and discussing what you might accomplish during your time in the studio

3) 10 images of current work

4) Budget for project and experimentation

5) Resume

Applicants will be notified by May 15th.
