Atelier Meridian is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for our printmaking community. We are closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak. We are currently closed to all non-members until July. All workshops are postponed until October, at which time we will re-asses the timeline to reintroduce them. For our members, which we can count on one hand, please help us when you come in by:
Signing into the calendar before your session, and also use the paper calendar so we know how often members are in the shop. Only two members are allowed at one time inside the shop. We have a Google Calendar going so you can see who intends to be in the shop, and when. Contact Jane to be invited to join the calendar.
• Wearing an effective Face Covering. This is required.* Research is showing that between 6 and 60% of people who tested positive for the virus are asymptomatic and DON’T KNOW THEY ARE CONTAGIOUS and we want to protect our members’ safety. Do what you can to STAY 6 FEET AWAY FROM OTHER ARTISTS. If someone needs the big press, and your work can fit on the small press, please cooperate by using the small press so there is less chance for close contact.
Cleaning - with bleach solution, please clean the door handle, lock, and other commonly handled items, and of course, your workspace.
Washing your hands and using hand sanitizer often. Wear gloves if possible.*

* Atelier Meridian will provide face masks and gloves if need be.

Here's what you can do to help us:
Stay home if you feel ill. Reduce contact by working at home or your own studio if there is any question about your health.
Full-time Members are welcome to use the shop as per usual, provided they take the aforementioned measures.
Punch-pass holders may use the shop when Jane is present, but must arrange with Jane a time slot so that more than two artists do not overlap.
Purchase a membership as a gift for someone or for you to use later to help us survive the economic impact.

As always, the health, safety and well-being of our members, our students and our communities is of paramount concern. We continue to monitor this quickly evolving situation and are here to assist our members, customers and students as needed.

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.

ink-n-drink is on hiatus for now.

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. For details and to sign-up, visit Whiteaker Printmakers' Web site - www.whitprint.com/about/emerald-print-exchange-2019
