The Ink Shop Printmaking Center
BIG INK facilitates large woodblock printing in Ithaca, NY.
The Ink Shop Printmaking Center is a not-for-profit that promotes fine art prints, works on paper, and artists’ books. Founded in 1999, The Ink Shop is operated by artists who offer a professional, open access, community-based printmaking facility and gallery. As a regional resource for printmaking, The Ink Shop offers five program areas: exhibitions related to prints and works on paper including artist books, a “Talk Print” series in which artists present and discuss their work and techniques, Olive Branch Press, which publishes invited artists’ prints or artist books, workshops for established and emerging artists, and a year-round studio facility for printmakers and bookmakers. Below is a selection of prints, created by BIG INK participants, at The Ink Shop Printmaking Center.
