The Dayton Printmakers Cooperative is unique to Dayton, and is one of four independent printmaker cooperatives in the state of Ohio. Founded in 1983, making it the second oldest facility of its type, the Cooperative was developed by artists to fulfill a creative need in our community and provide an accessible artistic environment. The facility is used by trained artists and printmakers, and offers all four of the main printmaking techniques—intaglio, lithography, relief printing, and screen printing. In addition, the Dayton Printmakers Cooperative hosts several workshops annually in a variety of print media, and participates in portfolio exchanges, group exhibits, and exchange collaborations with national and international studios.
