Join the Alternative Gallery to celebrate graphic arts with the Official Grand Opening of Inkhound Press - a communal print shop & division of the Alternative Gallery, a non-profit organization. The new exhibition space will focus on print based works. Inkhound Press was founded with the emergent printer in mind and our first ever exhibition will feature works which fit this theme.

The Grand Opening is also the official kick-off for the campaign to raise funds for a lithography press. Lithography (or litho) is a technical yet efficient form of printing which makes it possible to print directly from drawings, paintings & even photographs! Prints and patches will be for sale as incentives to support the cause. With your help, we can offer litho in workshops, kids classes and in our facilities to benefit the local artist community!

The Main Gallery will feature the “Art of Inkhound”, an exhibition of prints created by the artists which make up the crew of Inkhound Press.

Be sure to stick around for the awesomely talented Orlando’s Devil Pit Blues serving up some tasty licks in a musical performance that is sure to get those toes-a-tappin’!!
