"Elements" Portfolio

The Northern Printmakers Alliance:
The Northern Printmakers Alliance was founded in 1999 to promote traditional printmaking techniques through exhibitions and educational opportunities for the public and its members. All prints in this portfolio were printed by artists of the Northern printmakers Alliance of Duluth, Minnesota. We, the portfolio artists, wish to express our sincere gratitude to Cecilia Lieder, the principle organizer for this project, and to Jonathan Hinkel, who hand-set and printed the portfolio title, statement, and colophon pages at his press, Tight Squeak Press, of Duluth, Minnesota.

The Portfolio:
The portfolio consists of 16 hand-printed original prints in the following media: lithography with blind-embossment, woodcut, linocut, etching, screen prints, Xerox transfer, collograph, and monotype with four prints on each of the elements of its theme: AIR, water, earth, and fire. Eight boxed sets are available for purchase ($1500). Below are the portfolio images.

The Traveling Exhibit:
This portfolio is also available as a traveling exhibit. The 16 prints are framed in a 16" x 20" format. This exhibit is available without charge. However, host exhibitors are asked to insure the exhibit while in their possession and to assume the cost of insured shipment (one wooden crate) to the next venue. Pamphlets and one-sided exhibit invitations are also available to host exhibitors.
