The Printmakers' Network of Southern New England (PNSNE) is a group of artist/printmakers, at various stages of their careers; many of whom are respected educators as well as award winning artists. The PNSNE seeks to preserve and incorporate the tradition of printmaking while encouraging creative expression and experimentation. Founded in 1992 as a result of the coordinated efforts of local artist/printmakers and the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, the organization's mission is to advocate traditional printmaking and provide a resource for regional artists working with the transferred image.
