P.R.I.N.T Press thanks Eileen Fritz for serving as an intern in fall 2014. A BFA candidate with a major in Printmaking, Eileen worked on several projects:  
"This fall I have had the tremendous opportunity of interning at Print Research Institute of North Texas (P.R.I.N.T Press). During my time at P.R.I.N.T I have been able to learn, first hand, what it takes to run a fine art publishing studio, and about the role that a non profit press serves in the printmaking and creative community. 

My first tasks at P.R.I.N.T focused on the ongoing project with Kiki Smith, and a continuation of work I did over the summer as an assistant. . . .

Thank you Nicole Hand!

Nicole Hand, Compressed Observance
Thank you to Visiting Printmaker Nicole Hand, who printed an edition of Compressed Observance with the assistance of thirteen students, three faculty members and a volunteer. During her visit Nicole also delivered a lecture to Core Drawing students and participated in a P.R.I.N.T Press open house in which assistants demonstrated color intaglio printing techniques. 

Nicole's project was covered by the North Texas Daily and UNT News Service. The project is the first of a new subscription program in which members receive a hand-pulled, limited edition print from the collaboration in exchange for support to the program. 

Nicole's visit was co-sponsored by Core Drawing, UNT Printmaking and P.R.I.N.T Press.
