The Gallery at Tamarind
Tamarind Institute gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary printmaking, featuring 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.
Public Hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-4pm

We love to show off our prints but many are tucked away into flat files. Give us some notice and we’ll pull prints to show you at your convenience. It’s a wonderful way to experience Tamarind.
