The Press offers an Open Studio membership for local artists. Memberships provide access to a fully-equipped printmaking studio and a multidisciplinary work space for member artists. the open studio was created for individuals seeking a community in which they could create, collaborate and cultivate their work, or for those who simply do not have a facility of their own.
