Announcing the Micro-Grant Recipient…

First, sincere thanks to everyone who helped spread the word about our first-ever Printeresting Micro-Grant. And an even bigger thank you to everyone who applied. We were blown away by the quality of the applications. There were requests to fund creative projects, supplement equipment purchases, and more. From etchings and installation to zines and letterpress, there were many deserving submissions reflecting a huge array of print media. But ultimately, we could only choose one.

We weighed a lot of factors: overall merit, apparent need, and number of people benefited by the project, to name a few. With so many qualified applications, ultimately, we had to rely on our gut. So without further ado, the grant recipient is Aimee Lusty.

Aimee Lusty is an artist, writer and curator based out of Brooklyn, NY who’s been a volunteer gallery director for non-profit bookmaking organization called Booklyn. Aimee initiated a program dedicated to providing artists who generally share their work through self-published printed matter with a platform for exhibition, experimentation and exploration outside of the printed format.  These exhibitions have included drawings, paintings, installations, printmaking and book arts. For each exhibition, she’s produced a zine including each artists work in the respective exhibition. Exhibition photographs can be found here.

Aimee has proposed using the grant to fund zine production and an upgrade to the online store component of the project to make it sustainable. We’re looking forward to reports from Aimee on the new developments on the project.

Thanks again to everyone who applied. Keep an eye out in the future – this won’t be the last Printeresting Micro-Grant!
