There are lots of ways to participate in the 2018 Southwest Print Fiesta. You can be a vendor, take or teach a workshop, submit work for the juried show or the steamroller event, or volunteer to help!
Choose from the categories below or email firstname.lastname@example.org to propose an idea. The festival is free for attendees so, even if you can't commit to participating this year, we hope you can still make the trip to Silver City and join in the fun! Sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of this page to receive updates and information about the print fiesta.
Apply to be a Vendor
The Vendor Market will take place on Saturday, October 6 from 10am - 5pm in downtown Silver City, NM, and will feature the work of printmakers of all kinds from throughout the Southwest!
The application period has closed, but feel free to inquire about being added to the waiting list!
Please email: email@example.com
Apply as a Steamroller artist
Only 4-5 artists will be chosen to participate in this action! Each artist selected will hand-carve a large-scale 36" x 36" linoleum block to be inked by hand and printed via steamroller at the Saturday Vendor Market.
Sorry, the application period has closed. Please apply next year, or join us July 6 to watch the printing in action!
We will follow up in the first week of July with more information on how to submit your thumbnail sketch for review. Selected artists will be chosen from this next round of submitted sketches and, if selected, we will ship the linoleum to you in mid/late July.
Linoleum, ink, and paper will be provided, but selected artists will need to provide their own carving tools.
Not interested in being a vendor but still want to get involved? We could always use more help on the ground! Please contact us if you'd like to volunteer at the Fiesta.
Or join our STREET TEAM! Help us spread the word about the Fiesta in your town, on your campus, at your workplace or organization. Please fill out the form below, and we will mail you a packet with letterpress printed promotional posters, postcards, stickers, and other fun goodies for you to distribute.
