About the Printmaking Network News & Marketplace Please use the forum! The Printmaking Network started in 1997 as a networking platform. To this aim Gerten Goldbeck, artist and fine art printer published a donation- financed  circular letter, first sent out by post, later by e-mail. Thereafter it appeared on an irregular basis in German and English, addressing itself to nearly 300 graphical and fine art printing workshops and artists worldwide. A fine art printmaking fair - or rather Salon for original graphical art with many interesting encounters and exhibitors -  first took place in 2001 in the Municipal Galery in Bremen, followed by shows in 2002 and 2004 in the Museum of Labour in Hamburg and in 2008 in the Rhenania House of Arts in Cologne. In 2008 Gerten Goldbeck transferred the organization of the Network to the hands of Neuhäuser Kunstmühle in Salzburg which wanted to continue to publish the newsletter, maintain the website and organize the Salons until the end of 2015. In order to keep the Network alive, Gerten Goldbeck will pick up the threads with this homepage and the publication of a regular newsletter. Ulrike Koch, a fellow artist living in Hamburg, will assist with translations and editing. We have got two forums now, so we do not need the newsletters anylonger. Please use them for the marketplace and your information. The Printmaking Network is an international platform for graphical workshops, fine art printers with or without own workshop, associations of graphical artists and other interested persons. The aim is to offer a forum providing all  relevant information and to further the marketing of fine art prints. This homepage offers to all its members the possibility of presenting themselves, to communicate and exchange with fellow graphical artists and the possibility to access general and current information. As this is a non-profit project which is maintained on a voluntary basis, donations and help are, of course, very welcome.
