Support the new PROJECT PRINT Studio

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Update:

Our Kickstarter was an epic fail, but we moved forward with a minimal print shop on the 4th floor of Neumann Leathers. We have one intaglio press and the gear to support etching, drypoint, block printing, and monotype. Contact us for details.

 

Help us invite artists to create a series of fine-art print editions in the processes of stone lithography, etching, drypoint, and monotype.

Project Studios in Hoboken, New Jersey, our company that provides studio space and creative support for individual artists and collectives, musicians, and creative companies and non-profits in the greater New York City area wants to re-open our print shop. Many of the artists we work with have expressed interest in having access to a traditional printmaking studio where they can create print editions or just get very creative with a medium that they don’t normally work with on a day-to-day basis.

The first step is to make our existing fine-art printmaking studio better serve the needs of local artists, by adding the stone lithography process to our capabilities. This will require the purchase of a lithography press, lithography stones, and the handling equipment required to support the medium. A good lithography press is a fairly large capital investment for a studio, and the stones themselves are quite rare and are difficult to obtain. Fortunately, we have located a private print shop that is selling exactly what we need. Our shop already has the tools for etching, engraving, drypoint, monotype, and wood cut printing including an intaglio press.

The second part of the equation is giving selected area artists free access to the print studio for six months. During that time the artists may work on anything they like, but they will also be required to produce sets of prints that will be distributed as rewards to backers of this project. The studio will provide some special found paper with historical relevance that artists may choose to work with including old paper garment patterns from the leather factory where the studio is housed, and antique blueprints from the now-vanished dockyards of Hoboken.

You can help make this happen by contributing to this project, and you will be rewarded with original artwork from artists that we invite to the studio. There is also an option to take a short printmaking class.

Pledge your support and receive original artwork as a thank-you gift.

The final celebration of the successful project will be an exhibition and opening reception party at Proto Gallery, a local contemporary art gallery in Hoboken. All artists participating in the project may exhibit prints generated during the duration of their free residencies.

New Studio Shares at Neumann Leathers

Friday, October 4th, 2013

We have an availability right now in our 4th floor shared space. See below for details about the studio.

4th Floor Share: 20 ft. x 14ft. (suite: 24 ft. x 45 ft. 1080 sq. ft.) 525.00

 

We have built a few semi-private studios at the Neumann Leathers building in Hoboken. These are contained within a 1100 sq. ft. suite with a 12 ft. ceiling. Each studio has 8 ft. walls dividing it from the neighboring studios, but the natural light from the windows lights up all of the spaces. The suite is air-conditioned and heated, and the two windows can be opened for fresh air.

4th Floor Share: 20 ft. x 14ft. (suite: 24 ft. x 45 ft. 1080 sq. ft.) 575.00

4th Floor Share: 10 ft. x 14ft. (suite: 24 ft. x 45 ft. 1080 sq. ft.) 300.00

 

4th Floor Studio Share

 

The spaces are suitable for drawing, painting, sculpture, or other creative pursuits. They are not suitable for music rehearsal. Obviously, some courtesy to studio mates is a requirement. The lease term is month-to-month, so these are great starter studios.

The prices are based not only on square footage alone.  Windows, electrical power, type of door, or other factors influence the price. A freight elevator and passenger elevator are located in very close proximity to many these studios. Some studios have their own sinks, etc.. They are located on the 4th floor of Neumann Leathers in Hoboken, NJ. The location in the building is considered by us to be premium as it is right in the heart of the art and music section of the building, and has the convenience of the passenger elevator. All studios have locking steel doors and are private. All utilities are included. The spaces named shop have significant electrical service in place including 220 v for tools and equipment. The shop spaces are also appropriate for music.

Available: My Studio

Friday, April 26th, 2013

UPDATE:

The old studio is dead. It just simply could not be renovated to a satisfactory condition. May it rot in peace.

-n

I have decided that I need more space. My previous studio will be available for May.

The studio is 1100 sq. ft. on the ground floor of Neumann. It is a good studio for sculpture or similar work. I am looking for an artist, not somebody who wants to run a welding service or cabinet shop, but I would consider it it if the company does creative work. Access is 24 hours and the back door to the studio will allow for big materials to go in and out.

Physical Studio Features:

1100 sq. ft.
Concrete floors
Brick and cement walls with some sheetrock
No windows
Florescent and spot lighting with switches
12 ft. ceiling
Front and back door (back door is a sliding factory door that opens to a garage space with an overhead door)
Numerous grounded electrical sockets with a few 20A circuits
Two-way exhaust/intake fan
220V single phase power in a new panel with 100A capacity

Additional Features:

Wifi is included
Security cameras record the interior of the space. This can be kept or removed.
Modifications or improvements can be made to the space such as a wider front door, etc..
All utilities are included
