Zygote Press hosts artists from around the globe through collaborations with national and international partners. We work closely with these partners and artists in an effort to foster a robust and diverse network of opportunities for both artists and curators to exchange knowledge and experiences in the Cleveland community and beyond.

Find out more about our current resident artists.

Artists that participate in these programs are selected through an internal process. Therefore Zygote Press does not accept applications or nominations. However, all are welcome to attend the exhibitions.  For other open opportunities at Zygote, please consider applying for an open-call residency.

OPEN CALL — Winter/summer Fellowship Residencies

Zygote accepts applications for two 14-day residencies per year, one in summer and one in winter. Qualified artist residents should be established printmakers in the U.S. or abroad with the aim to work on a special project in Zygote’s Northeast Ohio facilities.

The next deadline for Zygote’s residency (winter& spring 2018) is June 15, 2017.

Another option … Stay at ZPASS for an independent residency

Depending on availability, the ZPASS apartments are occasionally available for non-residency individuals to rent. Visit the Zygote Press Artist Share Space (ZPASS) loft apartment page or email Liz Maugans at: liz (at) for more information.
