Fob Holder Program

The Fob Holder Program is designed to be a unique and competitive opportunity for artists to have unlimited 24/7 access to professional printmaking facilities in exchange for working in the Second State Press studio.

Program at a glance

  • Functioning as a hybrid work/trade exchange and residency program, Fob Holders commit to working a minimum of 8 scheduled hours per week in the studio in exchange for unlimited 24 hour access.
  • Mondays will be closed to the public and members so that the Fob Holders have dedicated time to work.
  • Each Fob Holder cohort hosts an exhibition of their work.
  • Fob holders are encouraged to be involved beyond monitoring the studio by contributing to other aspects of the organization such as assisting with special events, improving the studios, or providing general administrative support.
  • Selected applicants must make a four-month commitment to SSP and are expected to contribute to the studio community beyond their personal practice.
  • Basic knowledge of printmaking techniques is required. Technical assistance is not included in the program, but process demonstrations are available.

Each Fob Holder is given unlimited access to the facilities, storage for their materials, opportunities to sell and exhibit work and exposure to other artists at varying stages in their careers. 

Fob holders play a key role in the day-to-day function of SSP by assisting other members, making sure that the shop runs smoothly and managing the monitor schedule. They are ambassadors to the shop and are knowledgeable in various printmaking processes.

Artists interested in engaging with and building their community are encouraged to apply.
