The K. Caraccio collection is home to more than 5000 original prints
and handmade books, collected over more than 40 years by master printer, artist, professor, and collector Kathy Caraccio.
Kathy Caraccio started collecting prints while still in college. Very early in her career, Kathy apprenticed at The Printmaking Workshop, Inc. The witnessing of Bob Blackburn's approach to community making and mutual support decisively influenced the making of K. Caraccio's collection.
In 1977, Kathy started the the K.Caraccio Printmaking Studio.
Established first on the Bowery with three Charles Brand presses,
the studio relocated to Chelsea in 1993. Learn more.
