About Us

The Pittsburgh Print Group is a non-profit organization of artists who work in all fine art printmaking media. Founded in 1972, the Print Group is dedicated to artistic excellence and the perpetuation of printmaking as an art form by providing its members with exhibition opportunities throughout the southwestern Pennsylvania region.

Exhibition, education and artist networking are the Pittsburgh Print Group’s primary activities. Print Group members develop proposals for exhibitions in private galleries, museums and other appropriate venues, organize and manage group exhibits, publicize group and member activities and create community and educational events through demonstrations, artist talks and workshops.

Printmaking is a diverse art form. Although the Print Group remains open to present and future technology and its impact on printmaking techniques, for exhibition purposes, the Print Group asks that work include a printmaking process – relief, intaglio, silkscreen, lithography, monotype – as central to its execution. Photographs and digital images may be used as part of a final image, but may not stand-alone.

The Pittsburgh Print Group is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Member input and volunteer participation are highly valued and essential to the health and future of the organization.

Affiliations
