Liz Shepherd, an artist who ran a popular South End (Boston) printshop, has joined forces with Rebekah Lord Gardiner and Maudsleigh Editions to form Shepherd & Maudsleigh Studio. They have relocated to West Newton and are taking the studio into dramatic new creative territory. In addition to continuing to be a resource for printmakers to make etchings, woodcuts, monotypes and silkscreen prints, Shepherd and Lord Gardiner are thinking big: when fully established, there will be enough space for a textile makers space and painters’ studios.
The 2500 square foot space provides a spacious place to work. The studio is equipped with three etching presses, aquatint airbrush, ferric chloride etching tank, photo etching exposure unit. It is also one of the few places in the Boston area where artists have access to a fully equipped and spacious silkscreen studio.
The studio provides most of what an artist needs to get started including all clean up supplies, a basic supply of inks, small tools, grounds and brayers as well as squeegees, scoop coaters, photo emulsion etc. A flat file drawer is provided as well lockable cubbies for monthly renters. Artists are responsible for their paper and plates.
Artists and the public are invited to explore the new space by appointment. Please email us to schedule a time.
