2011 CRE Fellow Shelby Donnelly


Second State Press is pleased to offer the CRE Fellowship to the printmaking community, sponsored by Master Printer Cindi Royce Ettinger.  Each summer the studio will host an artist whose work demonstrates an uncommon grasp of the printmaking medium and an energetic approach that will likely influence future printmakers.

The candidate chosen to receive the fellowship will be granted 24 hour access to the Second State Press facility for the one month during the summer*, two flat file drawers in which to store paper and supplies, a modest stipend, and all critical feedback that membership in a communal print shop like SSP provides.  It is requested that two prints from an edition generated during the month be donated to permanent collections belonging to C.R. Ettinger Studio and Second State Press.

*The selected artist may choose any 30 consecutive days to use their scholarship between June 1st and August 31st.
