Atelier Meridian is a working print studio and artist community at the River Street Studios, right on the Willamette River just off Interstate Avenue, near Widmer Brewery. 820 N. River Street, Studio B-1. (Turn West onto Tillamook from Interstate Ave. Take 3 rights and a left and drive behind the building. We are facing the river in Studio B-1 on the North corner.) It is a spacious art studio with 24 hour access to the presses for members, and goodwill to artists and the curious who drop in for the occasional workshop, monotype session, or cup of tea.

Behind the wall of accordion garage doors live two big Takach etching presses; an Ettan etching press; a Kelsey letterpress; and shelves of all those other pins, brayers, rosin boxes, rollers, and smushers helpful for pulling woodcuts, collographs, etchings (there’s acid), solarplates, screenprints, letterpress and monotypes.

Jane making monotype

Anchored among the worktables and inks is master printer and co-founder Jane Pagliarulo. Good to have on hand either in the backcountry or at the wheel, Pagliarulo brings years of experience in monotype, etching, and lithography from the plateaus of Santa Fe and the valleys of the Cascades.

If you would like to stop by to tour the studio, call Jane at 503-729-9013.

Atelier Meridian offering Printmaking Residencies

Whether you are seeking uninterrupted studio time to focus on a project, or inspiration during a transitional time in your career, Atelier Meridian can tailor an experience to suit an artist’s individual needs. Residencies provide established and emerging artists opportunities to realize printmaking projects through 24/7 access to equipment, and creative support. Master Printer Jane Pagliarulo is able to offer collaborations or help with editioning. Contact Jane to set up a paid printmaking residency lasting from a week to a month.


Atelier Meridian is thrilled to announce an exciting collaboration between WhitPrint and Print Arts Northwest [PAN]. Together, we have created a brand new print exchange project: Emerald Print Exchange!

The exchange is open to fine art printmakers across the country -- spread the word! Participation is limited to the first 200 registrants so don't delay. For only $35, you receive 10 original prints from other artists in exchange for your edition of 12. WhitPrint and PAN will each retain 1 print from every edition, which will be used for raising awareness and funds for both non-profit organizations. The collections may be exhibited and available for sale at venues in Eugene, Portland, and/or nearby areas. For details and to sign-up, visit Whiteaker Printmakers' Web site -

Ink & Drink.

Join us for a free semi-monthly social gathering at Atelier Meridian - Ink & Drink.
A good print studio runs on comraderie as much as its fine presses. On the occasional Friday everyone is invited – members and gawkers alike – to come in and have those conversations you'd meant to have during the week but found your head too deep in the acid to engage. There will be drinks and snacks and Someone Special coming in to show and tell something you’d been wondering about anyway. Stay tuned for the next event!
Ink & Drink
- despite its moniker - is kid-friendly!
