MSU’S Flat Tail Press to celebrate print

Minot State University’s Flat Tail Press will host a celebration of printmaking May 5-6 in Hartnett 215E. MSU students, faculty and staff and community members will join printmakers from around the world to participate in the worldwide Print Day in May event. The group of artists will make prints with paper sized 11”x15” and use a variety of processes.

This is the third consecutive year that Flat Tail Press and MSU have participated in the Print Day in May event. In 2007, printmakers at Monterey Peninsula College, California, began devoting the first Saturday in May to printing. It grew into a worldwide event, including participants from various countries on five continents.

“This year marks the 10th anniversary of Print Day in May,” said Ryan Stander, art assistant professor and Flat Tail Press co-director. “It gets people working together on projects, learning from each other, and just enjoying each other’s company in the studio.”

Beginning May 5 from 6 to 9 p.m. and running through May 6 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the students, faculty and staff and community members will print using many processes including woodcuts and screen prints, lithographs and alternative photographic processes to make their editions. All are invited to attend this free event and learn about the different printing processes and help the participants with their prints.
