The Ruth and Seymour Landfield Atrium
Hannaher’s Inc. Print Studio is one of a handful of printmaking studios around the nation located in an art museum. In its history, the Studio has hosted a national professional residency program and has been a collaboration with Minnesota State University Moorhead School of Visual Arts. Thanks to Studio Manager Amanda Heidt and a community of artists, the Studio has been reinvigorated beginning in 2013. This most recent Studio programming includes community printmaking classes and opportunities for regional artists to produce prints using a variety of intaglio, relief, planographic, and screenprinting techniques. Hannaher’s, Inc. has taken on the mission to bring artists and printers together by creating a space based around traditional and contemporary printmaking education.
Recent Work from Hannaher’s Inc. Print Studio is an exhibition in the Museum’s atrium containing pieces from the artists who have participated in the exchange of creating collaboratively in the print studio. Artists represented include Dan Jones, Wayne Gudmundson, Star Wallowing Bull, Jessica Matson Fluto, Laura Youngbird, Anna Johnson, Peter Kelly, Keith BraveHeart, and Studio Manager Amanda Heidt.
