Manhattan Graphics Center Benefit Nov. 5th

Manhattan Graphics Center will be having a benefit on Nov 5th. It’s during print week and takes place in the same building as IPCNY. It’s a great event – Every ticket holder goes home with a fine art print of their choosing. Over 100 prints on exhibition, a silent auction, and raffle (tickets 1 for $10, 3 for $20).

Manhattan Graphics Center will celebrate 28 years of bringing artists together, with a benefit and silent auction party on November 5th from 6­-9 pm at The Highline Loft Space at 506 West 26th Street. The event will benefit MGC, an exhibition space and print shop where artists as well as public school students can learn and practice fine art printmaking. MGC was founded in 1986 as a collaborative workshop in a SoHo loft space by a group of 20 printmakers who, with their own labor and ingenuity, were able to create and operate the studio, a tradition that continues in mid­town Manhattan to this day. Since the time of its opening, MGC has been run by volunteer artist members who staff and maintain the facility 7 days a week, year­ round.

MGC’s principal purpose has always been to provide an accessible printmaking studio in NYC with professional facilities at a reasonable cost, and an environment where artists can work and learn together. Offering classes in basic disciplines, shorter workshops in adjunct techniques, and hosting artists talks are all an integral part of the mission.

MGC’s studio includes a gallery space for exhibitions (group and solo), for an annual juried show, and for exchange shows with international artists. MGC reaches out to the broader community through its high school printmaking initiatives, both at the MGC studio and on site at public high schools.

Proceeds from the event will benefit MGC directly and feature original prints from over 100 different artists, including members and affiliates! All attendees will receive an original print of their choosing and have the opportunity to participate in a silent auction and raffles.
