"The collection on view at the Missing Peace Art Gallery entitled "Crossing Borders" comprises linoleum cut relief prints from work that I have created over the last decade or more. Using images from African-American and Latino experience, Shamanistic and indigenous religion, and contemporary life I create images that viewers associate with dreams. Individually and together they suggest narratives of suffering, liberation, and consolation. Crossing borders suggests new ways of being, seeing, and ways to tell the story. The diverse and common iconography is deeply connected both to my own personal journey of struggle and understanding and to the paths of many others and of many different communities." 

Mary Woodworth

James H. Weigle works in printmaking (litho and relief) as well as papermaking, letterpress and book arts.  He explores landscape and pattern using monoprints and plein air oil painting. Often with concerns for the environment, Weigle expresses the beauty of landscape from microscopic detail to panoramic vista, from outright politics to sublime nature.  


James is a certified professional printer at the Tamarind Institute, and holds degrees from Carnegie-Mellon University (BFA) and Penn State University (MFA). His work is collected in Ohio and Massachusetts, where he has a Cape Cod beach studio.

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.


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.
