Olio Screenprinting Co-op | Grand Opening


Hello! I hope you're well & in good health.  It is with great excitement that we at the Olio Artists & Workers Cooperative at last announce the grand opening of our cooperative work and exhibition space.  You are cordially invited and encouraged to attend our Grand Opening!  We will be opening our doors to the public Saturday, March 21st, with free screen printing workshops for all levels beginning at noon, followed by an evening open house from 7:00pm onward.  Please find attached invite & press release.

Located at 614 1/2 Fisgard (2nd floor), the newly renovated studio is a publicly accessible work/exhibition space for artists of all disciplines.  Members of the Olio Cooperative are able to book studio time at a subsidized rate ($5/hour, $15/month for membership) which allows them dedicated studio time in a clean, quiet environment, as well as use of the extensive cooperative screen printing, print making and button press equipment.

The studio will be open from noon onward offering free screen printing courses throughout the day (introduction, advanced and poster printing courses), tours of the space and use of the screen printing equipment (when not in use by instructors) free of charge.  From 7:00pm onward, we will be hosting an advance viewing of Recent Works by Calvin Coles (opens March 27th) with ample refreshments and entertainment.  All for freaking free.
