Lee-Zimerle is an assistant professor and currently teaches drawing and printmaking at Cedarville University.

The groups have been exchanging prints for simultaneous portfolio exhibitions in the Dayton, Ohio and Kyoto, Japan areas since 2003. Each year a theme is determined by one of the two groups.
