| At Tamarind, artists'
lithographs are printed under conditions that meet the highest aesthetic
and ethical standards of the art. While in residence at the Institute, artists
create their images on stones and/or aluminum plates. The artist works closely
with the printer to create a series of proofs, using different ink colors
and papers, selecting one as the standard for the edition. Each impression
in the edition is printed by hand in our workshop by a skilled professional,
and is then inspected carefully by the Tamarind curator before it is signed
and numbered by the artist.
For lithography, costs are determined by the number of colors, paper size, and the number of impressions in the edition. For example, the cost to produce a four-color lithograph that measures 22 by 30 inches would be approximately $100 per impression, depending upon the number of impressions in the edition. The cost for a small one-color lithograph is significantly lower.
Our normal charge for one day of monotype printing, including the services of a printer for eight hours and all materials except paper (which we make available to artists at our cost) is $400 per day, $500 if two artists share a day. accommodations
A fully equipped studio apartment, located above the workshop, is available to artists while they are working at Tamarind for a charge of $75 per night.
Unfortunately, we no longer have a guest artist program except under the terms of specific grants. Our limited number of publishing ventures are by invitation only.
