Planet Art is the studio of Alice Dubiel. At Thunder and Lightning Press, a low toxicity studio, Barbara Bruch and Alice create print editions and offer workshops. Our press is a Glen Alps press designed especially for collagraph but etching and relief techniques can be employed. Its capacity for pressure is immense and its embossing qualities are impressive.

Join Barbara Bruch and me Saturday afternoon, May 7, 1-5 for an open studio of the press. Refreshments served and some demonstrations of polyester litho and collagraph prints will take place. Come by to visit, and enjoy the clean air, uncluttered profile of North Beach.
