History

Print Arts Northwest was formed in 1981 by a group of about 20 printmakers and educators in the Pacific Northwest who wanted some type of professional organization where they could meet and encourage each other and possibly find venues to show their work. Originally called the NW Print Council, the name was changed to Print Arts Northwest in 2001. The organization realized they had grown and changed from a group of artists who supported each other to an educational organization.
