Swedish Printmakers

The Swedish Printmakers´ Association was founded in 1910 by a handful of artists with the intention, then as now, of furthering the interests of printmakers, arranging print exhibitions and distributing information about printmaking as an art form.
The Association has worked internationally from the very beginning, exhibiting in many countries, and arranging print exhibitions from abroad.
The Swedish Printmakers´ Association runs a gallery from which there is a vast network of contacts to other printmakers´ collective workshops and printmakers´ associations in Sweden and abroad.

The Swedish Print-makers' Association proudly announces the celebration of its Centenary. The main feature is a grand exhibition of fine-art print-making. The exhibition opens on 26th October 2010 and finishes on 12th December 2010. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, will inaugurate the exhibition. The opening venue is at Konstakademien, the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine-Arts gallery at nr.12 Fredsgatan in central Stockholm. The exhibition will then travel to several different venues in Sweden during 2011.

The exhibition is divided into three categories:

1. HISTORISK ATERBLICK The history of our Association including a rich selection from the archives of our published editions throughout the years.
