Coming up fast on the heels of a fantastic SOLD OUT H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival is the annual Portland Open Studios tour! This will be my 2nd year participating in the tour, and it is your opportunity to visit my studio for a first-hand look at the work that goes into creating woodcut prints. Of course this is also a great chance to get a look at my entire range of work including unique artist proofs and pieces I don’t currently offer online.
I’ll be carving a new block and printing a limited edition of Death and the Printmaker throughout both weekends. Carolyne Landon will also be showing a selection of her work as well as demonstrating various printmaking techniques and her portrait work. We’ll also be a Gateway Studio for the tour and as such will be a raffle entry drop-off point.
Our studio, Atelier Meridian is located at 665 N Tillamook Ave, Portland, OR 97227 Please click for a map view and note our section of N Tillamook is easily accessible via Interstate Avenue (but not much else).
Atelier Meridian is both wheelchair accessible and friendly to all ages — though we do recommend keeping an eye on little ones as it is a working group studio and not toddler-proofed.
