Specializing in screenprinting and archival pigment printing, Norman Stewart, masterprinter, and his partner, Susan Stewart, a graphic designer, have invited artists to create fine print editions in their studio since 1980. Stewart & Stewart prints are noted for a painterly approach to screenprinting; the skillful use of vibrant, transparent inks; and comprehensive print documentation. In recent years, many print series have resulted in monoprints combining archival pigment printing with the addition of the artists’ unique mark-making and narratives. Stewart & Stewart involves the artist in every creative step of the printing process, transforming the image as it develops. Resulting in fine art editions and monoprints retaining each artist's unique style and painterly "hand."
The Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit, Michigan, recently acquired the fine art print archive of the printer/publisher Stewart & Stewart. The acquisition adds over 200 fine art prints to the museum’s current collection of Stewart & Stewart prints. This year, 2022, marks Stewart & Stewart’s 42nd anniversary of printing and publishing fine art prints in collaboration with artists across the country. In 1992, the Bloomfield Hills, Michigan studio became one of the first printer/publishers inducted into the IFPDA. The prints may be viewed by appointment in the Ina M. Clark Study Room at the Detroit Institute of Arts and online in the near future at www.dia.org.
