In 2012 the Center for Contemporary Graphic Art (CCGA), a facility dedicated to activities relating to prints and graphic design, opened a print studio open to the general public. The new �gCCGA Print Studio�h is located, together with CCGA itself, in the lush green foothills of Mt. Utsumine in the city of Sukagawa, in Fukushima Prefecture.
Sukagawa is the birthplace of Aodo Denzen (1748-1822), a painter of the Edo Period who was among the first Japanese artists to produce copperplate prints in Western style. In 2012 Aodo�fs works were designated by the Japanese Government as Important Cultural Properties.
With the opening of the CCGA Print Studio, small in scale but fully equipped, in this location with strong associations with prints, our aspiration is that it will serve as a welcome venue both for printmaking workshops attended by the general public and as a studio open to experienced print artists.
