Our biennial art calendar is here and available for purchase! The 2019 calendar features prints & paper by thirteen artists & printmakers, 12 months, and letterpress covers. This year, we printed an edition of 120 calendars, with each month page by a different artist. The calendar includes relief prints (linocut), screenprints, marbled paper, and handmade paper in a variety of colors. There are three variations on the letterpress cover: black, a blue split fountain, and a red & black split fountain roll.
(Split fountains, also known as rainbow rolls, feature a gradient of color applied in one printing pass!)
Please review this entire page for all purchasing and shipping options.

As ever, thanks to the Cincinnati Recreation Commission for support & giving our studio a home at Dunham Recreation Center.
One of the favorite features of our calendar is that each print can be trimmed free of the grid when that month is over, matted in a standard 11×14 inch mat (with 8×10 cutout) and framed! Above is Mary Woodworth’s linocut with framing demo by Susan.

(Above is a series of proof/test prints. Note that some were extra grids from previous projects, so not all the months are correct in this image! This is a small sample of the artwork inside, along with ink tests for various colors.)
