LAST BEST PRINT FEST

Since 2014 the ZACC’s Last Best Print Fest (LBPF) has been an annual celebration of printmaking like no other. With a rad portfolio exchange for Montana and regional printmakers based on a theme, an art opening and auction featuring every print submitted, a featured and honored printmaker, and tons of free printmaking demonstrations – LBPF is an incredible month-long educational printmaking extravaganza. Serving as the only annual fundraiser for the ZACC’s 100% Public Print Shop,  The Last Best Print Fest engages our community and creates greater awareness of this unique artform,  all while raising money for more printmaking programming throughout the year.

We LOVE Printmaking and we want to share the love with you! 

2022 LAST BEST PRINT FEST DETAILS

The 2022 LBPF Featured Printmaker is Missoula’s own Jace Laakso. Jace grew up in rural Connecticut in a house his father built on a few acres of hardwood and pine trees. He finally found his way to Montana in 1972, and received a BFA from the University of Montana in 1983, with an emphasis in metal working and printmaking. Jace’s work has been featured in the UM UC Gallery, Radius Gallery, the Plymouth Center for the Arts (MA), Viewpoint Gallery (NY), Courage Kenny-Alina Health (MN), Bryn Mawr (PA), Spokane Print Fest (WA), Brinton Museum (WY), and of course, the ZACC.
