Grow your art collection and support the Atlanta Printmakers Studio!

Hand-pulled Original Prints are the perfect and economical way to build an original art collection!

We are trying new format for our annual fundraiser this year – a lottery that enables every ticket holder to walk away with an original handmade print from a curated group of local and national artists. All prints are worth more than the standard ticket and many are worth 2-3 times more than that, so it is a great deal for you!

The artwork is included in the cost of your ticket, and there are ONLY 51 tickets for sale! Part of the fun is a lottery that determines when you get to choose.

Host Tickets are $300 and Standard Tickets are $150 and there is also one Golden Ticket available for $1000 that guarantees first pick.


How does Collector’s Choice lottery work?

All tickets are sold in advance. Each person who purchases a ticket is entered into the lottery. Everyone is guaranteed to win a print.

On September 23rd you and a guest are invited to the lovely Different Trains Gallery in Decatur to view the prints on display. At 3pm, the lottery draw begins, with tickets drawn at random. Host Level Tickets will be Round 1, and Standard Tickets will be Round 2.

As your ticket is drawn, you choose your favorite print from the available selection.
If you are picked first, you choose from the full range of 60 prints on display. There are a maximum of 51 tickets sold, so everyone will have a great choice.

If you are unable to attend on the 23rd, you can either send someone to the event to pick for you, or you may choose at a later date from the remaining prints.

Ticket Options:

Golden Ticket: $1000 – Only 1 available. This special ticket holder gets first pick among all the art! Entry to the event for four people, one art pick, and a take home gift.

Host Ticket (Round 1): $300 – Only 10 available. Entry to the event for two people, one art pick. Hosts are part of Round 1 picks with a greater selection of art. Hosts also receive recognition on our website and at the event, and a take home gift.

Standard Ticket (Round 2) $150: – Only 40 available. Entry to the event for two people, one art pick. The standard art pick will be Round 2.  Note: there will be about 60 prints available and a maximum of 51 tickets sold, so everyone has a good selection, no matter when you pick.


Since its founding in 2005, Atlanta Printmakers Studio has established itself as the only non-profit, open access print studio in the area, with year-round classes and workshops for all levels. We have also created a successful residency program, the annual Print Big steamroller event, the Atlanta Print Biennial international exhibit, and numerous programs working with children. In addition to these ongoing programs, we have received a generous grant from the Community Foundation that is enabling us to work with a consultant to refine our strategic plan this year and set goals for the future, including our needs for staffing and a new studio space. As many of you know, we thought we were moving last year, and even though that ended up not being the right place for us, a studio move is still part of the plan.

You are an important part of our fundraising efforts and make it possible to maintain the leading professional printmaking facility for artists in the Southeast. Your contribution is essential for the development of the Studio's education activities, purchase of necessary equipment, and upgrade of our facilities. All proceeds go towards APS’s programs and activities.APS is a 501c3 non-profit.
