Print Day in May brings magic of printmaking to Minot

MINOT, N.D. – On Friday, May 4 and Saturday, May 5, Minot State University’s Flat Tail Press will be hosting a celebration of printmaking. Minot State University students, faculty, alumni, and community members will be joining an event that printmakers from around the world participate in known as Print Day in May. The MSU contingent will be making prints using a variety of processes on paper sized 11”x15”.

This is the fourth consecutive year Flat Tail Press and Minot State University have participated in the event. In 2007, the Printmakers at Monterey Peninsula College in California began devoting the first Saturday in May creating prints. It has since become a worldwide event, with people joining in from countries on five continents. The printmakers of Minot are excited for the opportunity to unite with other artists and share the experience with community members.

“It can be hard to find time to make art. Print Day gives us a fun excuse to get together with others and make art,” assistant professor of art and co-director of Flat Tail Press Ryan Stander said. “It’s a great opportunity to reconnect the MSU art community.”

Print Day shares the spotlight with BFA student Hannah Streccius’ exhibition opening in the Hartnett Gallery on May 4. Streccius’ exhibit, “Mise-En-Scene: Stories in Stills,” opens at 6:30 p.m.

“Hannah has been instrumental in past Print Day events, so it will be fun to celebrate her hard work that night,” Stander said

Beginning Friday afternoon, May 4, and running through Saturday, May 5, the students, faculty, and community members will be printing using many processes often including woodcuts, screen prints, lithographs, and alternative photographic processes to make their editions. Printing is expected to take place from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday in Room 215E on the second floor of Hartnett Hall. This event is open to the community.
