Have Press. Will Travel.

Have Press. Will Travel.

Drive-By Press is a completely mobile printmaking studio built to promote the growth and democratization of art through printmaking.




Drive-By Press was created to bring the practice of printmaking to schools, groups, and communities with out the facilities or printmaking backgrounds. This fall our journey across America begins on the East coast where we will be printing with Peter Gorfain, Cannonball Press, and Dennis McNett at the Pratt Institute in New York. Later, we are also set to print with Jenny Schmid in Minnesota, Michael Krueger in Kansas, John Hancock in Texas, Kurt Kemp in California, and hopefully you! We will promote the artists work we print with on both local and national levels. Drive-By Press will support artistic education in the communities we visit while traveling across America by working with students and showing them various printing techniques. Our plan is to exhibit the prints we pull at the Southern Graphics Conference in Kansas City in 2007.
