Celebration of print facilitates learning about printmaking

Minot State University’s Flat Tail Press will join a worldwide celebration of “Print Day in May” in Hartnett 215E on Friday (May 6) from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturday (May 7) from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. MSU students, faculty and staff and community members will participate. Artists will create sized 11” x 15” paper prints using a variety of processes including woodcuts, screen prints, lithographs and an alternative photographic processes. 

“Print Day in May is a great event,” said Ryan Stander, art assistant professor and Flat Tail Press co-director. “It gets people working together on projects, learning from each other, and enjoying each other’s company in the studio.”

This is the second year that Flat Tail Press and Minot State have participated in the event. Last year, the group focused on the number 10, with 10 people creating 10 prints in 10 hours on a 10”x10” sheet of paper. The event began in 2007 when printmakers at Monterey Peninsula College in California designated the first Saturday in May to printing as a community. Since its creation, Print Day in May has engaged participants from various countries on five continents.
