       BYO Print will be at this year's Trenton Avenue Arts Festival on May 19th!  

Meet our members, and take a print home perhaps!

The Trenton Avenue Arts Festival is a neighbor-led arts festival celebrating the visual, culinary, and musical artists in the East Kensington section of Philadelphia (and beyond).  Held in conjunction with the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby, our festival is unique in that it features a kinetic parade of handmade sculptures that roll, spin, or hop through our neighborhood, starting and ending at the fest.  Local restaurants and food trucks come out to serve our finest foods, and local brewery, Philadelphia Brewing Company, is there to serve those of legal age their current brews.  Fresh and local live music anchors the festival, and hundred of artists, including us, will be there to offer their craft to you.  It's a ONE-OF-A-KIND event!

Last year, BYO Print members printed on site to raise funds for our upcoming move, and expansion to offer silkscreen studios.  We succeeded, and raised the funds to build our own exposure unit at our new home, right in East Kensington. Last year our five members: Katie VanVliet, Lauren Fischer, Lisa Imperiale, Ted Mosher, and Chad Lassin carved out special woodblocks to print, which we taught visitors how to print on our little press, Connie.

Now, we have twelve amazing members! Come our to TAAF to see prints from everyone above plus these awesome folks: Caroline Garcia Ziegler, Ellyn Wormelsdorf, Steve Streisguth, Donovan Phillips, Karen Powers, Hamidah McCorkle, and Madeline Adams!
