In her talk, Retter takes us through the history of creating Flying Adventures, and how the quest to bring a single handmade book to a larger audience not only continues to shape the project's trajectory, but also transforms its creator. While told from an artist's perspective, Retter touches on universal themes that inspire audiences to see their own projects' successes and failures as part of a bigger picture. Read more

Mission Statement

Phoenix Rising Printmaking Cooperative is dedicated to promoting the art of printmaking by providing a well-equipped studio, educational opportunities and an environment of mutual support, camaraderie and inspiration for artists and students, and the community.

History

Phoenix Rising Printmaking Cooperative was formed in 1996, and began renovating a 1904 building into a studio facility that opened its doors in September 1998. From its beginning the studio was equipped with a Takach etching press, a Vandercook relief press and materials to accommodate a variety of printmaking techniques. Later, Phoenix Rising acquired a second etching press and added additional mobile work tables so that more printmakers could work at the same time.

Phoenix Rising had always operated as a nonprofit organization, and in June of 2010 was officially granted 501(c)(3)status. The cooperative moved to its present larger venue in December 2011. The current facility is on the ground floor of a vintage factory with a full wall of north facing windows and is ADA compliant.

Phoenix Rising's artist members offer a variety of workshops and classes that highlight their particular skills and guest artists are invited to give special presentations. The artists of Phoenix Rising provide outreach programs demonstrating and teaching printmaking techniques in a variety of venues - public and private schools, art groups, colleges, artist's residencies, in-service workshops, etc.
