Greetings from the Northwoods!

May 2022.

We are beginning to thaw out!  The days are longer and some are sunny.  48 degrees feels so warm this time of year.  The trees are budding out.

Meanwhile inside, Jeremy is printing the first stage of a new Birch Tree woodcut.

The 2023 calendar will be almost ready for our Season Opener, May 27.  A Year of Trees, all new acrylic paintings.  Here’s a preview of the Tamaracks.

WELCOME TO BETSY BOWEN STUDIO

Located in Grand Marais, MN

Open 11-5 Fridays and Saturdays through the winter’ and by chance or appointment.

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.

In addition to the hand-printed woodcuts, we have books, cards, calendars, t-shirts. We are shipping weekly.  Please do browse !
