FAB and WhitPrint Go Out On A Limb

Fine Arts Brigade and Whiteaker Printmakers are partnering with Tim Boyden's Out On A Limb Gallery in downtown Eugene to add another exhibit space for fine arts.  FAB is now sponsoring a large portion of OOAL's south wall to display a monthly rotation of prints, paintings, photography, and other art forms.  WhitPrint will also be using a portion of the wall to extend their own gallery exhibits from their studio location into the downtown area.

The opening exhibit for the month of September is a selection of works by WhitPrint studio members. The exhibit includes two pieces by local painter Robert Canaga, shown in conjunction with his Smaller Works at the Whiteaker Printmakers studio gallery though October 11.

Each month will bring a new display, ready to view before the First Friday Art Walk.

Call for printmakers: BIG INK is back!

BIG INK brings its large woodcut revolution back to Whiteaker Printmakers for two days of printing, Saturday and Sunday, July 21 and 22, 2018. Selected artists will work together with BIG INK's Lyell and Carand to pull prints on WhitPrint's massive Trayle press.  Artists are invited to submit a proposal before May 14, 2018 to participate in the event.

Whiteaker Printmakers Goes Non-Profit

Whiteaker Printmakers is now a project of Fine Arts Brigade, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As Executive Director, Heather Halpern still takes excellent care of the studio, members, and programs. Paul Halpern and Laura Wingerd continue to perform magic behind the scenes. We look forward to including volunteers in future activities! We welcome donations to help us keep providing workspace and specialized equipment to artists, and to keep bringing important events to the community. Our non-profit status also allows us to apply for grants, which will help fund exciting activities — stay tuned for news. We appreciate the continued support and participation!
