Flatbed Press and GalleryFlatbed Press and Gallery
Flatbed – founded in 1989 by Katherine Brimberry and Mark L. Smith – is located at Flatbed Press and Gallery, an 18,000 sq. ft. warehouse which was redeveloped in 1999 as a community of creative professionals. Visitors have compared the aesthetics of the space to New York City’s Chelsea-district warehouse galleries.
Flatbed comprises two divisions: Flatbed Community Press is a publishing workshop which collaborates with artists to produce limited editions of original etchings, lithographs, woodcuts and monoprints. Flatbed also does contract, collaborative printing for other publishers, dealers, artists, and institutions and is available on a limited basis for open shop work by experienced artists. Flatbed Gallery is a private art gallery which specializes in original prints.
