Navigation Press is a master printmaking residency within the School of Art (SOA) at George Mason University. Each year, a visiting artist of national renown spends a week in the print studio with students and a master printmaker to complete a limited-edition print. During their time on campus, the visiting artist gives a campus lecture, participates in class workshops, and meets students for critiques. Students gain hands-on experience in the production of editions.
Navigation Press works with emerging and established artists who are producing innovative work inside and outside of the field of printmaking on a National and International stage. By working with Navigation Press, our collaborators have the opportunity to expand their practice in the printshop and work with students and our master printer to develop an edition.
The members of Navigation Press have generously supported this residency opportunity. These contributions afford Mason the opportunity to present annual lectures and workshops, so that students and public audiences have the chance to learn from contemporary and emerging artists who are navigating the changing art world.
