SWMP Suites & New Prints



Virtual Exhibition 

coming in May 2021

Begun in the late 1970’s, the Southwest Michigan Printmakers (SWMP) is a diverse and informal group of regional artist/printmakers dedicated to the creation of hand made and fine art prints. Meeting bi-monthly, the group encourages artists working in printmaking and promotes excellence in the various print mediums. Through exhibitions of their works, SWMP helps to encourage public knowledge, understanding, and support for printmaking.
