Before retiring after 30 years as a designer and hand letterer for Hallmark, Calvert Guthrie founded the Kansas City Center for the Ink and Paper Arts, a membership-based community printmaking studio. With his long, gray hair and goatee, Guthrie looks a little like a wizard. And he has created a bit of magic in the nearly 5,000-square-foot basement of the Hobbs Building in the West Bottoms. Though the KCCIPA has occupied the space just seven years, it seems as though it has been there forever, with dozens of sturdy printmaking presses ready for intaglio, lithography, relief, screen-printing and letterpress processes, spread out among paper cutters, shelves of reference books, prints hanging from lines or drying on racks, jars of ink and drawers full of old letterpress type. The center hosts workshops on letterpress, calligraphy, monoprinting and etching led by local artists, and builds community among its members with potlucks and regular Saturday-night printing sessions.
