Thank you to Intern Jessica Gengenbach


P.R.I.N.T Press thanks Jessica Gengenbach for serving as an intern in spring 2017. Jessica is Printmaking major who is graduating this semester with her BFA. Here she writes about her role in several major projects:  

Working at P.R.I.N.T Press was different from what I'd done before in my classes at the University of North Texas. Printing someone else's edition was a unique experience because all of the artistic decisions have already been made before I arrived, and my job as a printing assistant is to match the "right to print," or RTP. This is a print which the artist and master printer have produced, which represents the standard for the rest of the edition.

Working at P.R.I.N.T. allowed me to focus on improving my precision and technique in intaglio, and also develop skills for organizing and managing large editions. There were so many things that I learned in every stage of production, that I just wouldn't have gotten printing my own work.––Jessica Gengenbach 

When I print my own work I spend the majority of my time in the process of finding the final image, by altering the plate proofing different colors. I am inventing and making aesthetic decisions, up until I'm ready to print the edition. In other words, I put most of my energy into the part of a project which, at P.R.I.N.T, is done by the artist and master printer. My job was executing their vision and print the edition; however, editioning is where I usually turn my brain off and let my hands do the work.

Thank you to Intern Samuel Cowan!

P.R.I.N.T Press thanks Samuel Cowan for serving as an intern in spring 2017. This was Sam's second semester working at the press. A BFA candidate with a major in Printmaking, Sam worked on several projects:  
Another semester has now come and gone and my time at P.R.I.N.T has gone with it. The experience I have gained over my year with P.R.I.N.T will prove to be an invaluable tool when shaping my own professional practice and standards of operation. I have been so thankful for the opportunities provided to me through the press to work with visiting artists and assist in the production of their work. It has been a busy academic year with the introduction and conclusion of Jeffery Dell's laser cut wood block project, and edition printing for visiting artist Linda Ridgway and Katherine Brimberry of Flatbed Press. . .
