Visiting Lecturer

Carolyn Muskat owns and operates Muskat Studios, a professional printmaking studio in Somerville, MA where she creates her own work and collaborates with artists to produce original fine art prints. The Studio recently celebrated 25 years of collaboration and artistic creation with the publication of a portfolio of prints: “25 Artists, 25 prints, 25 years”. The 20th anniversary of the studio celebrated with an exhibition at Somerville’s Brickbottom Gallery. Carolyn has worked with more than 50 artists to publish over 400 prints in the past two decades. A full-color catalog was produced, including all of the work created at the studio, plus a history of the founding of the studio and an overview of printmaking in the Boston area. Ms. Muskat has been invited to several international arts festivals as a representative of the United States, as well as to teach lithography workshops. She has been invited to speak nationally and internationally about printmaking and lithography. She has been invited to teach at several New England colleges and universities.
