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 those who simply did not have a facility of their own.

 
 

Our press equipment includes four etching presses, one lithography press, a serigraphy vacuum table, Epson SureColor large format printer, screen station and a darkroom facility. Our newest offering is letterpress: we have over two hundred cases of type in a variety of typefaces, a Vandercook proofing presses, Chandler & Price platen press, stitcher, perforator, and drill press, which gives us the opportunity to offer the book arts.
