We are a small family-based printmaking operation in a scenic little coastal town in northern Minnesota.

We make woodblock prints by hand, pictures of recognizable scenes mostly from the northwoods. Many of these appear as illustrations in books for children and adults.

The printmaking studio and gallery is housed in a historic church, selling the current editions of hand-printed woodcuts, as well as the work of local and regional artists.

The web store is open all year.

Seasonal Studio hours are listed under "News and Events," (right). 

Calendar of Upcoming Events for 2019
We are open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday 11-5 all through the winter.  
This is the time of year that we work on new woodcuts, and some freshening up to the space before spring. 
Do come see us!  There's plenty of time for good conversations and looking around.
