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.

You may work independantly or hire a printer to teach you privately or semi-privately any form of printmaking you’d like to learn. Or ask us to print an edition for you. Bring a friend or two and make art together in a pre-arranged mini-workshop! Maximum 3 students and one or two printers allowed in the shop at one time.

FRIDAY, December 3 - 5 to 9 pm
Diane Jacobs: "Owed to the Mountain"
New Artist Book & Solarplate etchings

Owed to The Mountain cultivates a powerful story that inspires knowing a place deeply, sharing Indigenous wisdom, and building a community that turns its love for a mountain into action. Artist Talk at 7 pm
Diane Jacobs will talkin-depth about her print collaboration with Jane Pagliarulo at the Atelier, and she will likely elaborate on why we owe it to the mountain.

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. Ink & Drink.

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.
