The Gallery at Tamarind Institute

Current Exhibitions

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.

Open to the public, the gallery is also home to a series of artist talks and serves as a gathering space for educational programs and special events, and is supported through print sales, donations, and project grants.
