ArtOrg?s 2000 square foot Printmaking Studio will celebrate its Grand Opening with printmaking demonstrations on Friday, Jan. 13 from 6 to 10 p.m. and Saturday, Jan. 14 from noon to 4 p.m. Scott King of Red Dragonfly Press will be demonstrating letterpress techniques and local artists, including Rick Swearer and Kari Alberg, will demonstrate many of the available presses.
The community studio was created so that working printmakers and those who want to learn about the process have a place to create and use specialized equipment, including one of the few surviving large lithography presses in the country. ArtOrg?s Printmaking Studio is located on the lower floor of 314 Division St. S., accessible by stairs near The Art Store entrance. For more information, call (507) 645-2555.
