This show of historic prints currently on view in our gallery, was organized specifically in support of efforts to establish January as print month in Portland. It's an eclectic show, featuring work by 23 different artists, juxtaposing prints by regional makers here in the Northwest, alongside work by their more famous American and European peers.

The artists featured in our print show include:
European: Seymour Haden and Francisco Goya.
American: John Sloan, Frederic Taubes, Gene Kloss, George Plowman, Lionel Barrymore, Ralph Stackpole, Thomas Hart Benton, Rockwell Kent, and Asa Cheffetz.
Northwest: Tom Prochaska, Charles Heaney, Richard Muller, Melville Wire, George Johanson, Sherrie Wolf, Jack McLarty, Milton Wilson, Alex Lilly, William Givler, Alfred Schroff, and Margaret van Patten.

The print making mediums include lithography, etching, monoprint, dry point, aquatint, embossment, woodcut, linocut, and wood engraving, and include both color and black and white prints.

One of the great things about collecting original fine art prints, is that they are generally affordable for any budget.
