As Central Oregon’s only publicly-accessible printmaking and book arts studio, Atelier 6000 (A6) offers year-round artist workshops, hosts school groups during the academic year, and provides a workspace and exhibition opportunities for its members. A roster of exhibits featuring print and book arts showcase these underrepresented art forms for broad audiences.
