The Chamber of Graphic Art

The Chamber of Graphic Art is the largest and the most significant center of printmaking techniques in Latvia. It is founded in 1994 and is based on technical resources and traditions of the Experimental Print Shop, partly taking over also the functions of the Graphic Department of the Artists' Union of Latvia - through building international reputation of printmaking and organizing exhibitions.

The Chamber of Graphic Art has succeeded not only in strengthening the unique creative and experimental nature of manual engravings, but also in finding many new forms of activities. Of vital importance was the project aimed at improving functions of experimental print shop, as well as the major exhibitions “Overcoming the Plane� (2000) and “Face of Grapgic Art� (2001).

At the end of 2001 there was started a new programme: “Open Workshops�. Within this project, etching and lithography workshops offer an opportunity for a wider public to participate at the process of unique printmaking, as well as share views on theoretical issues.

In the studios of the Chamber of Graphic Arts it is possible to learn etching and lithography techniques under the guidance of professional artists. The studios accept commissions, as well as offer works for interior design.

The Chamber of Graphic Art is also collaborating with comprehensive schools and art schools/colleges offering its premises, equipment and knowledge to improve professional skills of students.
