Mokuhanga Sisters is a print collective of nine artists: Katie Baldwin, Patty Hudak, Mariko Jesse, Kate MacDonagh, Yoonmi Nam, Natasha Norman, Mia O, Lucy May Schofield, and Melissa Schulenberg. This international group bonded while studying mokuhanga in Japan and has continued to work together to promote exhibitions and educational projects involving mokuhanga. www.mokuhangasisters.com

THE KENTLER FLATFILES have been an essential element of Kentler International Drawing Space since its founding in 1990. A collection of over 2,000 artworks by 270 local, national and international artists, this living archive represents the incredible breadth and diversity found in contemporary drawings and works on paper today. The Kentler Flatfiles Digital Archive provides full online access to the collection, thanks to an ArtWorks grant (2015) by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).  
"Focus on the Flatfiles" is a rotating selection of works on view in our front gallery space. Selections from the Flatfiles are regularly presented in guest-curated exhibitions at Kentler and in traveling shows.

Special thanks to the Japan Foundation for their grant in support of the Between Worlds: Mokuhanga.
