Riverbed Press Free Printmaking Sessions
The Winona Arts Center’s (WAC) Riverbed Press is once again available to the community for printmaking. In advance of the WAC September 12, 2021 exhibit “Art in the Time of Covid”, the Riverbed Press offered free 2-hour sessions each day from August 16 through August 20. (See photos below.)
The “Art During the Time of Covid” exhibit, printmaking sessions and performance events are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from MN States Arts Board thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts & Cultural Heritage fund.
The Winona Arts Center lower level is home to RiverBed Press. Equipped with a 24” wide Conrad etching press since the spring of 2014, the printmaking facility is available for experienced printmakers to use for a nominal fee in the areas of intaglio, relief and monotype. WAC also offers classes in various types of printmaking so that inexperienced printmakers can gain the skills to make them qualified for RiverBed Press memberships. Press Studio hours are 3-8pm on Thursdays; check the WAC Facebook page for availability of printmaking classes.
