Muskat Studios is a professional lithography studio and gallery, owned and operated by Master Printer Carolyn Muskat. Anchored within a 200 year old tradition of collaboration and artistic creation, the studio provides a center for artists to explore lithography. Muskat Studios prides itself on its ability to offer artists an open, professional atmosphere in which to develop their images.
Muskat Studios specializes in the creation of original lithographs in collaboration with regional and national artists. We provide a significant resource to artists looking to produce exceptional prints. The studio offers special programming throughout the year, including artist talks, workshops, open houses and printmaking demonstrations to present work to the public that broadens the definition and scope of printmaking and art.
PHILOSOPHY: “This is a small shop with an emphasis on personalized collaboration. I strive to help artists who are new to printmaking, as well as those with experience, to work with confidence and enthusiasm. The focus is on the artwork and the artist’s experience. The quality of the work is critical. I want to do everything possible to enable the artist to do his or her best work.” CAROLYN M. MUSKAT
