July Relief Printmaking Workshop
Jennie Hanzlik, Craig Kehl and Jeremy Gates proudly display their successful single and two color relief prints created during the 3 session relief printmaking workshop held in July.
“The instruction for this class was great, and I liked how we learned from each other’s successes and challenges. We received many tips and tricks for creating a successful print. We also had many changes to tweak our designs or try things a new way to see how it affected our finished project. It was a great learning experience!”
We got to practice the carving techniques on linoleum block plates in the first class and apply them in the other classes.
"I enjoyed the experience of learning to prepare art for a printing press, of being given exposure to previously unknown techniques and tools, and of being given the opportunity to mix and roll inks, and ultimately, to operate the press."
The Monotype Happy Hour Workshop the evening of August 9th was a great success. Core Member Donna Jacobs led the session and provided a demonstration to inspire our guests’ creativity.
"This workshop was a wonderful experience. Everyone was so helpful and encouraging…and the food was delicious!"
"This experience was the most fun that can be had outside of space exploration to mars or mud volleyball. Thank you."

This is a continuation of the annual meeting of the printmaking cooperatives in Ohio. Phoenix Rising Printmaking Cooperative in Columbus will host the artist printmaking groups for the 2012 gathering. A coming together of these print shops provides for networking, discussion, open portfolios, and exhibition opportunities for printmakers throughout the state. The exhibition and other events of the gathering will be open to the public and printmaking students are encouraged to participate. It provides a great opportunity for people to see and learn about the many varied processes of the printmaking medium.
The first gathering, exhibition and panel discussion took place at the Massillon Museum in 2009 prompted by the exhibition, Collective Ink, curated by Christine Shearer. The next two meetings of the Ohio printmaking groups were funded by OAC in 2010 at Zygote Press in Cleveland and in 2011 in Dayton with the Dayton Printmakers’ Cooperative. The upcoming 2012 meeting in Columbus has also received funding through a grant from the Ohio Arts Council. Thank you for your support.

Read the reviews:
It was a wonderful experience. I enjoyed learning about the cooperative, and the workshop was straightforward and fun. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the staff was engaged in each of the projects and offered help when needed. The time flew by! It was great that everyone was able to make at least two finished prints. I think that everyone had fun making "art."
I wanted to thank you. I had such fun on Saturday. I really appreciated the nurturing environment. I love talking about art and it was great to actually make something myself! Good luck in your new workspace!
Today was special. I haven't watercolored since I was in the first grade. It's fun! I don't allow enough time for play, and I'm grateful I got to play this afternoon. I noticed everyone was smiling. Priceless. Thank you, Bob, Judith and all the artists at Phoenix Rising for encouraging us to play with the paints and experience printmaking!

As you walk through the gallery you will notice that the work of each member of the printmaking cooperative is unique. Each printmaker has developed a working style that expresses their own path, the way they see the world, and their visual commentary on that world.
As part of this exhibition, this talented group of artists will each share their particular "view" of Columbus in celebration of the city's bicentennial.
Additional works by each artist will also be on display.
Starting with images of her family and remembered locations, Ms. Calle Saari creates black and white woodcuts that are both memories and visions.
This exhibition is on display through May 20, 2012

Phoenix Rising Printmaking Cooperative is dedicated to promoting the art of printmaking by providing a well-equipped studio, educational opportunities and an environment of mutual support, camaraderie and inspiration for artists and students, and the community.
Phoenix Rising Printmaking Cooperative was formed in 1996, and began renovating a 1904 building into a studio facility that opened its doors in September 1998. From its beginning the studio was equipped with a Takach etching press, a Vandercook relief press and materials to accommodate a variety of printmaking techniques. Later, Phoenix Rising acquired a second etching press and added additional mobile work tables so that more printmakers could work at the same time.
Phoenix Rising had always operated as a nonprofit organization, and in June of 2010 was officially granted 501(c)(3)status. The cooperative moved to its present larger venue in December 2011. The current facility is on the ground floor of a vintage factory with a full wall of north facing windows and is ADA compliant.
Phoenix Rising's artist members offer a variety of workshops and classes that highlight their particular skills and guest artists are invited to give special presentations. The artists of Phoenix Rising provide outreach programs demonstrating and teaching printmaking techniques in a variety of venues - public and private schools, art groups, colleges, artist's residencies, in-service workshops, etc.
