Justin Barfield: New Grounds Print Workshop and Gallery

Author: Dept. Staff

Visiting Professor Justin Barfield has accepted gallery representation at the New Grounds Print Workshop and Gallery in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Established in 1996 by its director Regina Held, MFA, New Grounds is one of the first completely non-toxic print workshops in the world. The award-winning print institution was first operated in Albuquerque’s rural South Valley and moved to its current 4000 square foot location in historic Nob Hill along Route 66 in March 2000.  With six hand-operated etching presses, New Grounds matches, and even surpasses, the number of printing presses available in many university printmaking departments. New Grounds features a large selection of original works on paper such as etchings, monotypes, relief prints, gravure and mezzotints by its studio members and a selected group of well-known international printmakers from Europe, Japan, and Latin America. Subject matters and styles range from contemporary to traditional with hundreds of framed and unframed works to choose from.
