DURHAM PRESS
Est.1988

Durham Press produces and publishes limited edition fine art prints and multiples. Each year, owners Jean-Paul Russell and Ann Marshall invite artists from around the world to come to the Press to create original works of art for print. All works are made by the artists in the Durham Press studios, in collaboration with owner Jean-Paul Russell and our highly skilled staff of printmakers. Durham Press is well known for its complex and often large-scale screenprints, woodcuts and mixed media projects. Located in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, the facility houses a gallery and two printmaking studios, with silkscreen, hydraulic, and etching presses, as well as a large wood shop and metal shop.

“Printmaking requires much more commitment than people imagine. In order to make a print, an artist must break down a work into discrete stages and states. This requires a great deal of concentration and effort, but it also creates the opportunity to rethink – and reinvent – technique, order, structure, color and surface. Prints often open up artists’ vocabularies and allow them to see their work in a new light. It is our hope that the prints made at Durham Press will not only be incredible artworks, but that they will leave the artists inspired.” – Jean-Paul Russell.

Durham Press produces between five to eight new projects every year. Artwork on this website is for sale, unless otherwise noted. The prints can be viewed at our gallery in Bucks County, at art fairs in New York and Miami, and at galleries throughout the country. Visits are welcomed year round by appointment and we hold an open house once a year.  For more information about the Press, or to inquire about a print, please contact Gwyneth Fearnhead [email protected].
