Tugboat Printshop: Woodcut Prints

January 9, 2016 — January 29, 2016

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 9, 4-6pm


We are Paul Roden & Valerie Lueth, and together we are Tugboat Printshop. We are 2 artists and printmakers, a husband & wife team. We began collaborating on artwork together in 2006, specializing in fine art woodcut editions. Our studios are in Pittsburgh, PA.

Tugboat Printshop makes authentic, traditionally hand-crafted prints in exclusive limited editions, available direct from the artists (us).

Quality is important to us. We take exacting care drawing, carving, printing, handling & shipping our original woodcut prints. Tugboat's editions are published by the artists with top-shelf inks onto fine, archival papers.
