In Platemark s3e23, host Ann Shafer speaks with Kimberly Henrikson, Executive Director, Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, CT. CCP offers myriad services from contract printing, to artist’s residencies, classes, workshops, and exhibitions. It really does it all. As CCP’s executive director and administrator, Kimberly not only makes sure the lights are on, but also runs the budgets, raises funds, organizes programming, and curates exhibitions. Managing human resources and staffing, finance, marketing, programming, fundraising, as well as curatorial is no small feat. With a staff of four full time and three part time people, it’s all hands on deck all the time. Small but mighty, CCP is a printmaking nexus in Connecticut.

Find out how she does it all while also acts as the president of the Print Club of New York.
