2003 — Northwest Print Council Founders' Portfolio
April 15 – May 28
The Founders’ Portfolio
The Northwest Print Council
The Northwest Print Council is a nonprofit organization of professional printmakers, dedicated to promoting the artistry and appreciation of original prints. Founded in 1981, the Northwest Print Council includes the states of Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington and the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia.
This portfolio of original prints is a project executed by the founding members of the Northwest Print Council, or by the estates of founding members who are deceased, as noted on the dedication page.
The typesetting and printing of the Title, Colophon, and Dedication pages were executed by Linda and Daniel Pinkham at Pinkham Press. The portfolio design and construction were by Sandy Tilcock at Lone Goose Press. Production coordinators for the Founder’ Portfolio were Lyle Matoush and Barbara Davis.
Of an edition of fifty, this is print portfolio number 32.
This copy of the Northwest Print Council Founders Portfolio is owned by the Hamersly Library and is available for viewing by appointment.

For their permission to restrike images left in their care
A restrike is a print that has been pulled at a later date from the original image (matrix)
created by an artist. Most often this is done posthumously, as in the case
of those we wish to memorialize.
Acknowledgements of the printers who assisted in producing the restrike prints are
Glen Alps’ etching, printed by Joe Fedderson and Barbara R. Brunch, with Robert Graves and Iris Nicholas as facilitators;
Don Bunse’s etching, printed by John Saling and Margaret van Patten;
Laverne Krause’s aquatint, printed by Liza Jones; and
John Rock’s etching, printed by Jon Jay Cruson and Jani Hobert.
Prints produced in collaboration for the artists by professional printers are
