Founded by Susan Hover Oehme in 2010, Oehme Graphics is a fine print publisher, working with nationally recognized artists to collaborate in a state-of-the-art printmaking facility. Contract printing, private artist collaboration, artist residencies, internships, apprenticeships and educational workshops round out the programming at the studio. Located in an 1800 square foot workshop in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, the large studio has full etching capabilities, including photo/solar-etching processes, steel-facing, and an artist studio. Above the main workshop is a 700 square foot gallery space and an elegantly appointed artist apartment. The mission of Oehme Graphics will be dedicated to producing intaglio prints and monotypes of the highest caliber in collaboration with a small number of artists each year, and awarding artist residencies each year to applicants who successfully demonstrate their work would benefit from a month-long uninterrupted stay at the studio.
Ms. Oehme, the director and master printer, was the director and master printer of Riverhouse Editions, Steamboat Springs, CO for fourteen years and a master printer at Tyler Graphics in Mount Kisco, NY for six years prior. She has worked as a master intaglio printer for the past twenty-five years at numerous fine print studios, including her first press, Susan Hover Editions, in New York City. She has taught printmaking workshops at Northwestern University, Denver University, the Women’s Studio Workshop, Brandeis University, and Kozo Fine Art, and has juried and curated numerous print exhibitions throughout her career.
