Manhattan Graphics Center (MGC) is a fully equipped, fine art printmaking studio that welcomes artists at all levels of printmaking experience.

MGC’s facilities include three etching presses, three lithography presses, a silkscreen area, and a complete darkroom. MGC offers many options for independent workspace use and a wide variety of classes. For enrollment in all programs, artist membership is required. Membership is open to all artists for an annual fee of $35 and entitles members to numerous benefits.

^Elizabeth Murray^

- Access to the studio for classes and open workshop
- Opportunity to include your work in the MGC online gallery
- Opportunity to include your work in the MGC slide file and flat files for review by visiting curators'
- Eligibility for one–person shows at MGC for members currently working at the studio
- Participation in portfolio and exhibition projects

The administration of MGC is done mainly by key–holders; they are crucial to its survival. For their commitment to monitor (that is, supervise the studio for 4 hours per week, do chores, and staff the MGC committees), key–holders have access to the studio when it is closed and also receive tuition discounts when the studio is open. Artists who wish to participate must have at least one semester of attendance at MGC and must be approved by the Board of Directors.

^David Storey^

MGC will offer scholarships for its Summer 2012 term, which begins in mid–May. Printmaking experience is not required. Any artist who has not previously worked at MGC is eligible to apply. Visit our website for application guidelines, or send a self–addressed stamped envelope to MGC for information.
Scholarship applications are due March 15, 2012.
Send completed application packet to: Scholarship Committee, Manhattan Graphics Center, 250 W. 40th Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10018
