Meet our new IC Press Co-op Program Coordinator, Emily Jalinsky

We are pleased to introduce Emily Jalinsky as the new Iowa City Press Co-op Program Coordinator at PS1. This is a new position that was created via support from the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, through a Capacity Building Grant.

Emily has been integrally involved in making great things happen at PS1 over the past four years as an organizer, instructor, and collaborator (check out her extreme dedication to printmaking!) and we're excited to have her on board as a staff member!

"I feel fortunate to have worked with all the fun, talented people who have been a part of the IC Press Co-op over the years. Being involved in this community, the ever-evolving shop space, and its programming has been the highlight for me as an artist in Iowa City. I am so excited about this new chapter for our organization and the opportunity to invest in our membership and future print possibilities!"

meet Emily:  Addressing the state of mind in which art is made and how art affects a viewer’s mental state is one of Emily Jalinsky’s main objectives with her delicate works on paper, assemblages, and printstallations. She engages with mindfulness as a meditative act in the studio and as a way to visually bring hyper-awareness to body sensations and surrounding spaces through organic forms and repetitive patterns. Emily received a BFA in printmaking in 2012 with an emphasis in intaglio etching from the University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS. She has lived and worked in Iowa City for the past four years and was selected for the 2017 Iowa Women’s Art Exhibit at the State Capitol. Emily is incredibly passionate about working alongside other artists and contributing to supportive arts communities and outreach. She is a member of the art collective, Bluestockings, has served on the board for Public Space One, and is a member and teacher at the Iowa City Press Co-op.­
