1.0 SUMMARY

 

Within The Old American Can Factory is a new, bright, spacious rental intaglio print studio set up by Lothar Osterburg, a masterprinter and renown teacher of printmaking and photogravure. This studio is intended as a private platemaking and editioning studio for individuals in need of a professional and quiet workspace. Lothar Osterburg has operated his own etching and photogravure studio since 1993, and has helped design the current print studios at Crown Point Press, CA;  planned and renovated the new print studio at the Lacoste School of the Arts, currently operated by the Savanna College of Arts; and is working on a substantial renovation of the print studio at Bard College. Lothar's own studio is adjacent to the rental studio, and he will be involved in its operation. For more information on Lothar Osterburg please visit, < WWW.LOTHAROSTERBURGPHOTOGRAVEURE.COM >
