At its core, printmaking is the craft of disseminating fine art. And for decades, the Northeast Ohio scene was spotty at best. That is until the cooperative, fine art printmaking workshop Zygote Press started up in 1996. Soon its organizers discovered what began as a zygote of an idea was warmly embraced by an arts community starving for a collective vision where artists were encouraged to produce fine art prints. Today, this nonprofit is an epicenter of creative expression for printmakers and artists in its E 30th St. location, as well as throughout Cleveland neighborhoods. Zygote Press celebrates its 20th anniversary with the “Lovin’ Spoonful” fundraiser taking place Thu 3/10 at Tastebuds Restaurant next door to its workshop, as well as with retrospective exhibition ReUNITE, which opens a day later and features artworks by Christi Birchfield, Reverend Albert Wagner, Laurence Channing and Audra Skoudas.
