Blacks Swan Screenprinting is bringing the Serie Project to Houston
The Serie Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the fine art of serigraphy – a technique that produces original, hand-pulled prints. The organization offers an Artist in Residence (AIR) program that allows participants to learn the technique and create a limited edition of prints, under the guidance of a Master Printer. Hoping to increase the presence of minorities in the art world, the Serie Project encourages multi-racial participation and two-third of all resident artists are Latino.
A large part of the Serie Project’s mission is to market the prints created by its resident artists. Print sales promote the artists’ careers and support the program’s operational costs. Each edition of prints is priced at minimum so that the organization may offer original artwork to the public at an affordable price.
The Serie Project was founded in 1993 by Austin artist Sam Coronado, and has hosted more than 250 residencies to date.
