Plate Tone Printshop Tour - May 11, 2008

Do you want to see Plate Tone Printshop?

On Sunday, May 11, we are hosting a Tour of the Printshop. This will be an informal thing where people can drop by and look at the shop, and learn more about what we offer. The Printshop is a membership organization usually closed to the public, so this is a good chance to see the presses and our workspace. It's not an art show type open house, just a tour of the shop. We'll be there from 1-4, you can come by at your convenience.

Plate Tone Printshop
5124 Charlotte Pike
Nashville, TN 37209

We are a printmaking studio with current membership openings. Basic knowledge of printmaking is required in the context of a fine art practice. Members of the Printshop create work including but not limited to etching, monoprint, monotype, polyester plate lithography, relief processes and marbling. Through hands-on workshops, demonstrations and group exhibitions, members increase their knowledge of printmaking and connect to other working artists. Our goal is to foster a vibrant, local printmaking community.

The Printshop provides the opportunity for artists to have 24-hour access to specialized equipment. Our facilities include two etching presses, a large inking table, a low toxic etching bath (Ferric Chloride as opposed to Nitric Acid), a Solarplate exposure unit, a
large paper soaking sink, and more. We use exclusively non-toxic and
low toxic printmaking materials.

The studio is conveniently located right off of I-40 in a storefront space on Charlotte near the Italian Market and Southern Thrift, in the hip Sylvan Park district.

Look for the the gold dome roof Amsouth bank. We are next to Zigns sign store, with the orange plaid curtain. There is a parking lot behind the building.
