ANNUAL PRINT FAIR & EXHIBITION 2017
SATURDAY, JUNE 24, 2017 – 12PM TO 5PM
Art lovers of all kinds—from casual admirers to serious collectors—are invited to attend Self Help Graphics & Art’s Annual Print Fair and Exhibition. Held on the last Saturday of June every year, Self Help Graphics & Art’s Annual Print Fair is a one-day only opportunity for art lovers to acquire new, limited edition, fine art prints created by dozen of artists at Self Help Graphics & Arts during the year. The Annual Print Fair & Exhibition is a highly anticipated showcase filled with panel presentations, demonstrations, and an opportunity for artists that have participated through Self Help Graphics & Art’s Professional Printmaking Program to show off their work created throughout the year. This event draws hundreds of people to SHG, giving the artists a chance to exhibit their artwork on a large scale. The Annual Print Fair & Exhibition helps provide funding for the Día de los Muertos Season.

professional printmaking program
The Professional Printmaking Program is the artistic foundation of Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG). The acclaimed Professional Printmaking Program has produced over 750 editions and offers artists of various experiences the opportunity to create limited edition silkscreen serigraphs and monoprints through a peer-led approach that is dedicated to providing a nurturing environment that supports our artists’ creativity and careers.
As one of the most recognized Latino printmaking centers in America, SHG is committed to taking more innovative approaches in everything it does. We have been dedicated to working with artists in exploring the juxtaposition of traditional and non-traditional printmaking processes and to the development of content that is both culturally relevant and investigative. As is our tradition and mission, emerging artists will be central in helping us experiment in each atelier.
The Professional Printmaking Program is supported in part by our wonderful sponsors:
