All our residents get 24/7 access to our screen printing shop. A fair reminder: this is a print shop in a barn. Is it homey, rustic, and charming? Yes. Is there a learning curve and potential to screw up? Also yes. Ask our Print Fellow, Zach Ingram, for advice and you’ll get a print you’re happy with.
The shop is also the home base of our Print Editions Program, where we invite artists to work alongside our Print Fellow to produce original screen prints.
Zack Ingram (b. 1991, Jackson, MS) is an artist and writer coming to Wassaic by way of Austin. In 2017, he received an MFA in Visual Art from the University of Texas at Austin and, in 2014, a BFA in Printmaking from Maryland Institute College of Art. His practice combines found images and materials to examine traditions of masculinity, labor, and power in the modern American South. His work has been exhibited in venues throughout Baltimore, Austin, Vancouver, and Mexico City.
