Tiger Lily Press Activities
Monthly or quarterly member email newsletter.
Weekly Open Studio sessions: Friday and Saturday afternoons from 1:00 – 6:00 pm. A studio monitor is present for technical assistance. (Note that due to the pandemic, the studio is open to members only).
Independent Work Space for experienced and emerging printmakers: Members may work in the studio seven days a week, during CRC hours by obtaining the key from the Dunham office, and on weekends with a studio monitor. The staff member will open the schoolhouse building and turn off the alarm and the member receives the key to open the studios. The studios and building are locked and the key is returned to the office when leaving. TLP provides an equipped shop for printmakers for working after graduation outside of academic facilities.
Classes in various print processes taught by Tiger Lily members ($25./hour): relief, etching, screen-print, polyester litho, collagraphs, letterpress, monoprint, bookbinding. Professional Development Units are available to teachers upon completion of required contact hours. Classes are open to the public and are advertised on the Cincinnati Recreation Commission website.
Potluck/artist presentations quarterly: an artist/member is invited to present examples of work and discuss their process. Members bring wonderful food to share. Rick Finn, 2015 WAP Resident spoke about his work on December 10, 2015. Mary Woodworth presented about her summer work in September 2015.
Print Exhibition Opportunities: Member shows annually for members to show their work and to educate the public about Tiger Lily Press and printmaking.
Annual Members Print Sale. This is a member opportunity and fund-raising event. TLP receives 20% of all artist sales. Currently, the sale is held in November at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center.
Fundraising Project: Calendar of artist images produced every two years: 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019. Previously the calendar was composed of original woodcuts incorporating numbers. Current 2019 project incorporates various print processes. Artists’ images will be removable for framing.
An early fundraising project was a printmaking marathon held September 13-14, 1997 from noon on Saturday to 6:00 pm on Sunday, which raised $3000. for the MAPC Pressing Issues Print Conference. A dozen area printmakers worked to raise awareness about printmaking by printing twelve 11 x 15″ prints, which were exhibited in a portfolio at the conference.
Working Artist Program begun in 2012 by former director, Theresa Kuhr. The WAP Residency invites an actively working respected artist for six months or a year. A stipend of $300. is provided and the artist works in the studio during the week and is available to members. The WAP resident may present a workshop and will show their work at a potluck gathering during the residency time. They are featured on the website, the blog and Face Book. The artist presents a one-page proposal of intentions for the residency, which serves as a starting point, giving them direction and offers them an opportunity for reflection upon completion. Jan Thomas, 2013 WAP Resident had a show of her residency work at the Covedale Library and at NVision. Jack Arthur Wood, 2014 WAP Resident showed his residency work at Clay Street Press, Jonpaul Smith, WAP 2015, showed his work during the Verge Exhibition. Rick Finn was the 2015-16 WAP Resident, Brad Thiele was 2016-17 resident and Renee Harris is resident for 2017-18.
