About the OGS Gallery
"I love the community of artists and printers at Open Ground Studios. I instantly felt at home in the printshop. This feeling was strengthened when I spent a day printing in the beautiful facility, as people came by and offered friendly support." Cindy Davis
“I am continuously and deeply rewarded by the environment here and my personal art practice has become infinitely richer as I've been encouraged by both new friends and relative strangers, and have been mentored by amazingly talented artists. This place is a wellspring not just of art, but of inspiration and belonging." Corinn Hillstrom
