The CSP Board of Directors are setting aside monies for member-initiated creative projects which engage the CSP membership. Projects are limited to your imaginations. We are especially interested in projects which engage the membership beyond the San Francisco Bay Area.

The next review of proposals will be in early October. 

Proposal submission deadline: September 30, 2022

Notice of acceptance sent by December 1, 2022

The details and application process for this Membership Engagement Grant may be found on the CSP Submittable

Membership in the CSP is open to artists from anywhere in the world who create hand-pulled prints. This includes artists who use traditional printmaking techniques, such as etching, lithography, relief printing, and silk screen. It also includes artists who make hybrid prints, monoprints, and artist books, so long as some hand printmaking is involved. Artists who use solely photographic or digital methods are not eligible for artist membership.

Artist Members are juried into the organization by a review committee of current and past members of the CSP Board.  
This year’s deadline is June 1, 2022.

Information on Portfolio Review may be found here.

California Printmaker. The theme for 2023 is Shifting Gears. Sometimes a major shift in your thinking moves your work in a new or unexpected direction. This could be due to a new technique or material, a novel idea or even just a major mistake on your part. How has this change affected your work and its future direction?

Accepting proposals until August 30, 2022
