Welcome to Tiger Lily Press
Tiger Lily Press is a fine art printmaking studio in Cincinnati, Ohio, located on the grounds of the Dunham Recreation Center in West Price Hill. The studio offers workspace, exhibition opportunities, classes, and a community for printmakers and art lovers. Devoted volunteers with years of experience in the field of printmaking maintain and operate the studios. With over forty members, and growing each year, artists enjoy working with others who share their passion for the printed mark.
TLP memberships provide opportunities for projects, for networking in the field, and for ongoing development of artists’ career. Classes are available for beginners, artists looking for a refresher, or for teachers seeking continuing education. Collectors and arts supporters will find connections here with premier printmaking talent in the region.
Tiger Lily partners with the local community, museums, and universities to fulfill TLP’s mission to produce, preserve, and promote the art of printmaking. Visit an open studio session or contact us to schedule an individual or group tour.
Working Artist Program
Tiger Lily Press is pleased to announce that the 2019 Working Artist Program (WAP) residency has been awarded to Breanne Trammell of Cincinnati, OH.
Breanne Trammell is an artist whose practice is rooted in printmaking but by no means limited to traditional print media. She states: “I thrive on pivoting between print, graphic design, digital platforms, installation, sculpture, performance, participatory and public projects, as well as institutional archives as a site for artistic inquiry.” She earned a BFA in Studio Arts with emphasis in Printmaking at the University of Texas, and an MFA in Printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design. Since 2017 she has been an Assistant Professor of Fine Art at the University of Cincinnati. More about her various projects can be seen on her website: www.breannetrammell.com
Her residency at Tiger Lily Press in 2019 will allow her to continue work in an ongoing series of prints that she has created during residences at the Kala Institute (Berkeley, CA), the Women’s Studio Workshop (Rosendale, NY), and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts (Nebraska City, NE). About this work she says: “For over a decade, I have used Twitter as a digital record book where I post notes to self, puns, half-thoughts, dumb jokes, slang, celebrity sightings, bird sightings/identification, and more. Using the rich history of printmaking, my project TXTS IN THE AGE OF MECHANICAL REPRODUCTION (TXTS) transforms these digital entries into tangible objects. This project aims to honor the significance of the insignificant and the poetics of the everyday.”
She will utilize the letterpress equipment at Tiger Lily Press to expand on this series, and the other presses in the studio to create additional new work, as she prepares for a solo exhibition at the Weston Art Gallery in June 2020.
