The Gallery at Tamarind Institute
Tamarind Institute’s gallery is dedicated to the sale and exhibition of contemporary prints, specifically lithographs made in our workshop by emerging and established artists in collaboration with our highly-skilled printers.
In addition to publishing fine art lithographs, Tamarind hosts a myriad of artist talks, educational videos, special features highlighting prints from our flat files, and more. Much of Tamarind’s programming and resources are now distributed digitally, and we encourage you to sign up for periodic emails announcing new editions and upcoming events.
Proceeds from print sales directly support Tamarind’s students and educational programs.
With hundreds of prints available for purchase, we have created several online exhibitions to simplify your browsing. All online exhibitions can be found under Purchase Prints, or you can begin with one below. In addition to our vast selection of available prints, Tamarind’s gallery program includes a series of virtual artist talks and conversations, accessible under Tamarind Talks.
Tamarind is supported through print sales, individual donations, and project grants. Your purchase contributes directly to Tamarind programs and artist residencies.

Later this fall Tamarind will be presenting new editions by New Mexico artists Eric Garcia, Gabby Hernandez, Szu-Han Ho, Jane Lackey, and Zahra Marwan, who took part in the Tipping Points project, presented in partnership with Albuquerque Public Art Urban Enhancement, a division of the City of Albuquerque’s Department of Arts and Culture.
