Anchor Press, Paper & Print (AP3) is a non-profit community-based printshop. Our mission is to advance the fine art printmaking tradition by providing education and studio access. We provide a place for artists to make prints using our equipment for a monthly fee. Workshops on printmaking are offered here, as well as various public events like artists talks, lectures, and gallery shows.
For 25 years, the previous iteration of AP3, Anchor Graphics, Chicago (1990-2015) published editions and offered workshops, shop access, artist-in-residence programs, internships, exhibitions, free lectures, and other community outreach programs. Now, with a new studio, new community, and new city, AP3 is open in the Riverwest neighborhood of Milwaukee, WI.
