The K. Caraccio Studio was founded in 1977. Established first on the Bowery with three Charles Brand presses, the studio relocated to Chelsea in1993. In July of 2005, the studio moved to its current building, in Chelsea. The studio has taken on dual roles as both printshop and gallery (closed in 2017), in addition, to housing a significant part of Kathy's collection.
The K. Caraccio studio focuses on collaborative platemaking and editioning to non-acid plate-making and monotype projects using non-traditional techniques, including pochoir, silk aquatint, and hanga (Japanese water-based woodblock printing). The studio is invested in non-acid techniques and green printing materials.
In addition to printing for established artists and publishers, the studio develops projects with emerging artists and first-time printmakers. Kathy fosters creative inspiration while utilizing her skills in a broad spectrum of stylistic trends and printmaking techniques. The studio also offers an apprenticeship program for artists.
