Platetone: Many hands make light work.


Blend Studio will be hosting new work by members of Platetone Printmaking during the month of September. Members will be available on the opening night of the First Saturday Art Crawl.

Platetone Printmaking, Paper, and Book Arts is a non-profit fine art studio, established in 2004. Platetone’s members have been drawn to our studio in search of a supportive communal space in which to create prints, artist’s books, handmade paper, and mixed media works. Keyholder members have 24 hour access to our spacious studio, which includes etching and lithography presses, silkscreen equipment, a paper making studio, and more.

Throughout our existence, part of Platetone’s mission has been to share our love of art with the larger Nashville community. We work in schools, at national printmaking events, and host monthly open studios. Please visit us on the third Thursday of every month, where we open our studios to the public to take part in a demonstration and hands on project!

At Platetone, we have found that many hands make light work…

In this exhibition, you will find works by our diverse members, including printmaking, book arts, paper arts, and mixed media. You will also find illuminated pieces created by Platetone artists individually, in collaboration with one another, and in collaboration with community participants in our open studio sessions.
