Mixit Print Studio is an open access professional printmaking studio owned and operated by Catherine Kernan, Jane Goldman, and Randy Garber. Although privately owned, the studio fosters a supportive and interactive community of printmakers/artists.

Over the years Mixit Print Studio has sponsored many group exhibitions, produced several portfolios of prints, now in important collections, and published or co-published two substantial books about the studio to accompany exhibitions. We have mentored a number of young artists, and we offer workshops on a range of printmaking topics.

The studio is fully equipped for making and printing large-scale intaglio, monotype, monoprint, relief, and photo-intaglio plates.

Features that make Mixit Print Studio one of the premier printmaking studios in the Boston area include:

  • Our convenient location to public transportation
  • A limit on the number of artists using the studio at any one time
  • Intelligently and flexibly organized space
  • An emphasis on safer and sustainable printmaking processes
  • Quality equipment that can accommodate large plates
  • A vibrant and supportive community of artists / printmakers
  • Participation in exhibitions, portfolios, and Somerville Open Studios
  • Generous sharing of technical information and feedback on work
  • Opportunity to participate in workshops given at Mixit
