Seattle Print Arts is an association of artists, arts professionals and collectors who have an avid interest in the expanding field of print arts and an appreciation of the print media. SPA fosters intellectual and artistic dialogue, serves as a resource for news in the field of printmaking, and forges links between artists.
SPA serves as a base for a variety of activities which focus on the print arts. Since its formation in January 2000, SPA has organized symposia, lectures, print exchanges, demonstrations, and several print exhibits, including two major international exchange exhibitions. SPA has also sponsored printmaking scholarships at Seattle's Pratt Fine Arts Center.
These events and activities are all made possible through the generosity of Seattle Print Arts members, the public, and several local and national granting organizations.
