Buckham Fine Arts Project in partnership with Factory Two is pleased to announce On Screen - Flint
Buckham Fine Arts Project launched BFAP: On Screenin 2020. On Screen isa collaborative printmaking project that fosters ties between multiple communities: artists, nonprofit organizations, and collectors. The project involves pairing invited artists with community-based Flint nonprofit organizations. Artists create original images highlighting the work of each non-profit. Then working closely with printers at Flint’s Factory Two, artists learn the screen printmaking process to create limited edition posters for each organization. Participating artists receive an honorarium for their creative and physical work on this project.
The limited edition prints will be sold by Buckham Gallery and proceeds from sales will be donated to the featured nonprofit organization, as well as two signed prints for their collection.
The first On Screenprint to be finished features Genesee County Youth Corporation's REACH by Zach Lang. A second screen print by Matthew Osmon and featuring Latinx Technology and Community Center is currently in progress. Our goal is to complete 6 editions featuring 6 Flint community-based nonprofits by the end of 2021. Ultimately, as COVID-19 allows, BFAP will host a culminating exhibition to reveal the collection of prints.
