The Northern Printmakers Alliance

The Northern Printmakers Alliance was founded January 15, 1999 to promote traditional printmaking techniques through exhibitions and educational opportunities for the public and its members. Any regional printmaker is invited to apply for membership. There are two levels of membership: active and associate. Active members participate in group shows and meetings; are currently working in prints and are accepted for active membership by a vote of present members; and have agreed to provide disclosure certification for their prints when requested. Associate membership is open to anyone interested in printmaking or in the activities of the NPA. Associate members may attend meetings, and will receive newsletters or meeting notes, invitations to all activities, and may submit their work for jurying into NPA shows. If you are interested in applying for membership, please contact Cecilia Lieder.
