Wayne Kline

     Wayne Kline was the Director of Rolling Stone Press, the first and only professional hand lithography atelier in Atlanta, and one of the few in the southeast. His facility provided regional, national and international artists with the opportunity to collaborate with Kline, a Tamarind Master Printer. Wayne Kline was an artist as well as a Master Printer. Kline began lithography while studying at the Atlanta College of Art in 1975. He then received a Master’s degree from Florida State University before undertaking the intensive two year program required to become a Tamarind Master Printer. The designation of Master Printer has been awarded to only 60 individuals since its inception in 1960. The Virginia native returned to Atlanta and organized Rolling Stone Press in 1984 with a commission from the National Business Committee for the Arts. Kline’s company vision and work reflect much more than his educational background. Embodied in his philosophy and design are the sobering lessons learned while serving in the Vietnam war.
