Papermaking and Printing at Pyramid Atlantic

Saturday, May 11, 11 am - 12 pm
4318 Gallatin St, Hyattsville, MD 20781

Pyramid Atlantic welcomes the James Renwick Alliance for a hands-on tour of its studios. After a brief overview of Pyramid's unique printmaking, papermaking, and book arts equipment and capabilities, guests will enjoy a tour of the space and get a hands-on tutorial in papermaking and letterpress printing and walk away with the fruits of their labors.

For guests who would like to extend their time in the area, the Gateway Arts District Open studios begin at 12 pm. These self-guided tours include the 17 artists studios located at Pyramid Atlantic as well as nearly 100 additional artist studios in the Gateway Arts District (note: some require transportation, a map will be published closer to the event).

About Pyramid Atlantic: Pyramid Atlantic Art Center was founded in 1981 by noted artist and teacher Helen C. Frederick (JRA 2015 Distinguished Artist) to provide a setting for artistic collaboration and dialogue. Today, Pyramid Atlantic is a nonprofit contemporary art center fostering the creative disciplines of papermaking, printmaking, and book arts within a collaborative community. The facility features a papermaking studio, print shop, letterpress studio, bindery, darkroom, and private artist studios.
