Cleveland Print Room Opens In Artcraft Building: NE O’s Home for Hand-Processed Photograhy

Founded in April 2012 by Shari Wilkins, a dealer in vintage found photographs, Cleveland Print Room (CPR) is a community darkroom, studio workplace, education center and photographic gallery. With a focus on black-and-white,  hand-processed photography, we are dedicated to engaging students and community members in the techniques of  shooting, processing and printing film manually.

Be sure to look for our gallery opening in January 2013, along with upcoming workshops, alternative process classes, shoot-outs, CRIT night portfolio reviews, and salons for artists, students and collectors.


Join us on January 11 2013 from 5–9 p.m. for the opening reception of our inaugural exhibition, Welcome to Hard  Times. Using a large format pinhole camera, Vaughn Wascovich tells the stories of the Eastern  Texas landscape and it’s  rich past and uncertain future. With ties to Northeast Ohio, Wascovich understands the transition of the landscape and  the shifting future of our environment. The exhibition runs through February 24, 2013.

Cleveland Print Room aspires to build awareness and foster appreciation for fine art, hand-processed photography. We are a workshop-based educational organization devoted to offering accessibility to an affordable workspace where you can get your hands wet with fix and also have the opportunity to exhibit your work in a collaborative environment.

We are dedicated students in the techniques of shooting, processing, and printing film manually.

CPR will fill a void in Cleveland’s thriving arts community by providing darkroom facilities, studio space, education and exhibition opportunities.Keep in touch for updates on upcoming workshops, shoot-outs, and symposiums for artists, students, and collectors.
