The Archive Collection at Pyramid Atlantic is comprised of prints, pulp paintings, and artist made books created and acquired between 1981 and 2007. During this time, Pyramid offered a publishing program in which artists, many who were not printmakers, were invited to come to the studio to work with staff in the production of a body of work in print form. The edition (number of prints) produced would generally be split 50/50 between the artist and Pyramid. This collection was recently evaluated and digitized.
While some of these pieces will stay with Pyramid for historical and educational purposes, many prints are available for sale. To set up an appointment to see these works in person, email Kate at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Artist Talk – 40th Anniversary Panel Discussion

Artist Talk – A Conversation with Tom Nakashima and Helen C. Frederick
Tom Nakashima made several prints at Pyramid in the late 90s. One of the prints made at Pyramid, Death of a Samauri, can be found in the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s permanent collection, along with Nakashima’s large painting, Sanctuary at Western Sunset.
