Membership in Collectors Club directly supports Tamarind’s students and educational programs.

Tamarind’s Early Years

Tamarind Lithography Workshop opened its doors in the summer of 1960 on Tamarind Ave in Los Angeles. With this bold experiment, June Wayne and co-founders Clinton Adams and Garo Antreasian started a movement around collaborative printmaking that continues to this day. This unique program is widely credited with revitalizing the creative medium of lithography, and continues to provide the only printer training program of its kind in the world. Representing this founding decade is a Louise Nevelson edition from her first collaboration with the workshop.

Pattern Language

This grouping highlights artists who work with their own unique systems, creating a formal language based on repeating patterns, invented volumes, and color structure.

California Connection

Tamarind began in Los Angeles as Tamarind Lithography Workshop, under the creative and industrial influences of the 1960s. Over the decades Tamarind Institute maintained this connection to its West Coast founding, bringing many artists from Northern and Southern California to collaborate with the New Mexico workshop.

Classic Litho

The medium of lithography has the capacity to capture a great range of mark-making and drawing styles. The selection here highlights traditional lithography, with its transparent layers, fluid areas of tusche, deep velvety blacks, and the individual character of pure drawing.
