A Professional Printmaking & Book Arts Center
Based on the centuries-old tradition of the atelier, Atelier 6000 is a center for an energetic community of artists, working collaboratively, sharing ideas, technique and process – it’s a place for learning and inspiration; a studio-workshop where students from all lifestyles, from absolute beginners to professional artists learn directly from master artist teachers.
A well-equipped studio, A6 has 2000 square feet with three presses for plate lithography, etching, and monotype. Dedicated to sustainable practices, A6 prints with less toxic and “green” materials using soy-based water-soluble inks; no caustic chemicals or acids usually associated with printmaking are used during the print process.
Artist Residencies and Community Classes
Sponsored by Atelier 6000, guest artists participating in the Artist in Residence program travel from throughout the northwest to present workshops in bookarts, print techniques, encaustic printmaking and more. Community classes are open to the public and college courses are offered through COCC and Oregon State University in the open studio environment of Atelier 6000. Instructors include full-time studio artists as well as professors from colleges and universities.
Contemporary Presentation Gallery and Exhibits
The Atelier 6000 presentation gallery emphasizes a 21st century multimedia approach to contemporary printmaking and book arts, while preserving and honoring reference to 15th – 21st century process. The gallery is dedicated to presenting six contemporary edge and theme-based exhibits per year. Onsite and outreach classes, art talks, lectures, demonstrations and educational workshops facilitate creative and interpretive experiences that enrich artists, the community and the region.
