OUR MISSION

Paper Circle is dedicated to educating and enriching the culture and economy of southeast Ohio through the preservation, advancement and celebration of the paper and book arts. We are a non-profit committed to arts learning in order to provide studio mentoring for interns, teaching opportunities for artists, learning opportunities for community members, and holistic arts-based enrichment and wellness opportunities for children.

Paper Circle is a non-profit paper, print and book arts organization located on the historic, starbrick-lined square of Nelsonville. We house a gallery with 12 professional exhibitions a year, shop where we sell an assortment of handmade papers and other objects of art, and a creative studio which is located in the rear, in which we make paper by hand - and where offer community workshops. Downstairs we have a screen printing shop and our O-Gami papermaking operation. Our major outreach program, Circle for Kids, takes place in the summer. In response to the lack of art education in the school from grades K-8,  Circle for Kids provides the undeserved area youth a summer of enrichment and learning through the arts.
