Dear Tamarind Friends,

For the next several weeks, Tamarind will be operating virtually. We will follow the same precautions instated by The University of New Mexico, and the same social distancing practiced by many of you who are also working from home. The Tamarind gallery remains closed to the public through April 6. During this time you may contact us by email at, online at, or via social media.

Please join us online for inspiration, education, amusement, and a bit of community. Our newly designed website encompasses educational videos on lithography, and documentary short video profiles collected over the past several years from our student printers. Browse the flat files and discover an overlooked gem, or read up on new releases by recent guest artists. You can now peruse and purchase online from our complete print inventory. Let us know what is on your mind, and what we can share in the way of distraction and solace from Tamarind’s vast archive.

Stay healthy, and for the short term anyway, enjoy the pause.

Diana Gaston
Director, Tamarind Institute
