Before opening 10 Grand Press, Marina Ancona worked in print shops in Santa Fe, Paris, and New York. She has studied at the Boston Museum School and taken master classes Helen Frankenthaler, Ken Noland, and Susan Rothenberg at the Santa Fe Institute of Fine Arts.
Marina Ancona’s publishing and collaborative projects have been exhibited internationally, including the Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Leo Koenig Gallery, Art in General, and Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. She has conducted lectures and workshops at Bard College, Sarah Lawrence College, SUNY Purchase, and Pratt Institute, among other institutions. Ancona has collaborated with a range of artists, such as Nicole Eisenman, Jose Maria Sicilia, Jeff Gibson, Karen Heagle, Nicola Lopez, Carrie Moyer, Emily Roysdon, and Harmony Hammond.
“Marina Ancona is a dream to work with. Like a great conductor, she is a keenly observant and intuitive collaborator who has a talent for facilitating the best work in the artists she prints with. After I do a series of monotypes with Marina, I know I will return to the studio with a whole bunch of new ideas and methods for my paintings — not to mention a pile of gorgeous prints."
"Working with Marina is a wonderful process. She knows what I want before I do and has taught me everything I know about monoprinting."
- Susan Rowland
"With Marina's intuitive help and thoughtful nudging, your work is allowed to emerge. It is a great collaboration."
- Joan Brooks Baker
