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.
