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 a big Takach etching press; 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.

PAN Emerging Printmakers
Residency Show

Once a year, we get a new crop sent to us from Print Arts Northwest. Some are fresh out of art school, where they were taught techniques that only take them so far. Some are in their 70s, but they sought a mentor to nurture their talents. Printmakers are known for their propensity to share. They share tools, knowledge, and time with their fellow printmakers, and you can see the passion and work ethic in every etched line and mysterious grey mark. Come see what a community of printmakers can produce.

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.
Ink & Drink
- despite its moniker - is kid-friendly! Kids are invited to come and make art with wreckless abandon in our spacious, warm and cozy cement-floored studio.

FREE FRIDAYS: If you take a workshop from Atelier Meridian then you get to come in and print unassisted, free every Friday for the next two months. Includes brown & black ink, solvents & newsprint. Click here to find out about upcoming workshops.
