The Amor Residency at Baldessin Press Studio is generously supported by Rick Amor and is offered to a printmaker wishing to further their printmaking practice, using research material from the State Library to inform their practice.
The Amor Residency at Baldessin Press Studio may take place at any time within the year of the award, according to the recipient’s project and research plans. The offer may include accommodation onsite at the Press, printmaking tuition/technical support, limited materials or editioning to the sum of $5000. Please contact us prior to submitting your application so we can provide further information on how you may wish to allocate the prize, specific to your project and needs.
