Our Artists

The artists of the the Northern Printmakers Alliance are an eclectic group, and diversity has always been one of the strongpoints of the Alliance. The common thread is that our printmakers either live and work in this northern region or are closely tied to it in some way (for example, Gendron Jensen spent most of his life in Grand Rapids, MN and maintains enduring friendships and family ties here; Anna Marie Pavlik is a Minnesotan by birth, education, and family connections and returns often to explore the northern Minnesota wilderness she depicts so sensitively). However, this is not always reflected in the content of their work, which evidences a wide range of expressive forms. Some NPA artists work out of small home workshops, while others have established large professional studios. All of the artists create their own printing plates -- carving, etching, or processing the plates themselves. Most of these printmakers also print their own work. All prints represented by the Northern Prints Gallery are hand printed in relatively small editions, and are signed by the artists. The artists produce their prints with archival materials for maximum longevity.

Several artists of the Northern Printmakers Alliance have participated in three portfolios produced by the group. The first portfolio, "Elements", contains 16 original prints. Eight of these beautifully boxed portfolios are still available for sale. This portfolio is also available for traveling exhibits. For further information on the portfolio, see Elements portfolio.
