LS KK RS 480

ArtOrg operated a fine-art printmaking studio in several locations over the last ten years, but the Cannon Falls facility will put the best of that equipment and acquired know-how to permanent use. ArtOrg is a general-purpose arts group, and we focus on education and artist collaborations. Printmaking, however, has found a special place serving our collaborative mission.

Our printmaking studio equipment is extensive and unique, and represents a significant resource for ArtOrg projects, artists, and print students. We anticipate offering memberships to a printmaking studio co-op, and residencies when combined with our living quarters.
