The Swedish Printmakers’ Association

The Swedish Printmakers´ Association was founded in 1910 by a handful of artists with the intention, then as now, of furthering the interests of printmakers, arranging print exhibitions and distributing information about printmaking as an art form. The Association has worked internationally from the very beginning, exhibiting in many countries, and arranging print exhibitions from abroad.

The Swedish Printmakers´ Association runs a gallery from which there is a vast network of contacts to other printmakers´ collective workshops and printmakers´ associations in Sweden and abroad.
The Association functions as an information centre and meeting point for those who appreciate prints and for artists who are printmakers.Its members are testing and extending the boundaries, if indeed there are any, of printmaking.
It is a collective of some 430 active printmakers encompassing just as many means of expression.
A jury chooses new members every year. Work is submitted and qualifications are assessed.

Apart from the actual artist -printmaker members there is also a group of supportive members consisting of approximately 500 persons paying a yearly membership fee. They receive a portfolio of three prints every year and can purchase prints from the gallery with a ten per cent rebate. They receive “PRINTNEWS” free of charge for one year, have free admission to exhibitions organised by the Association and receive invitations to every opening of the gallery exhibitions during the year. Supportive membership costs 1,800 Swedish crowns per year. These fees provide an important financial support for the Association and its members.
