Zygote Press, Inc. says
Zygote Press RE/UNITE marks the press’s 20th anniversary and features prints by over 25 of the regions most acclaimed artists. Some, such as Gloria Plevin, Margaret Yuko Kimura, Michael Loderstedt, have returned to the press throughout their careers; others, including Dante Rodriguez, Amy Casey and, countless other national and internationally known resident artists, are more recent additions to the roster. All share an enthusiasm for expanding their artistic practice by making prints.
When the four founders established Zygote Press in the Saint Clair Superior neighborhood, they expressed a commitment to creating a space where a community of makers could work together and collaborate that was remarkable for the time. Most workshop-based ventures were not part of the city’s fabric at that time. Zygote offered an alternative and welcomed artists who were new to print the opportunity to explore an alternative studio practice that gave possibility to both newcomers and seasoned printmakers.
Witnessing the evolution of artistic movements happening in Cleveland the press has applied a constant level of innovation to the region’s contemporary art scene while working with visiting artists, regardless of style, to realize complex ideas. From the late 1990s, Zygote and their team of staff members, printers and artist residents have developed ways in which projects can evolve and prosper.
