About Whiteaker Printmakers
The Whiteaker Printmakers studio resides in the Cox Cannery in Eugene's eclectic Whiteaker neighborhood. With a ground floor main studio and an upstairs annex, it combines to provide 2400 square feet of workspace with high ceilings, lots of natural light, and plenty of parking.
Our facilities accommodate a variety of printmaking techniques such as etching, woodcut, monotype, collagraph, screenprint and letterpress. Please take a look at the growing list of presses and other equipment available at the studio. We provide many inks and supplies for communal use and offer plate materials for sale at cost. Our studio work environment supports the latest in sustainable, non-toxic printmaking practices.
The WhitPrint studio was opened in 2015 by Heather and Paul Halpern. Heather, an artist and printmaker, was motivated by the desire to do printmaking. Paul was motivated by the desire to get Heather's presses out of the garage. In 2017 the Halperns formed Fine Arts Brigade, the non-profit organization that now operates WhitPrint.
The success of WhitPrint can be credited to all the printmakers, artists, and other community members who have not only shared the vision but seriously jump-started the launch by loaning equipment and tools, donating supplies and time, shlepping very heavy things, getting the word out, painting and decorating, designing graphics and web pages, and by encouraging us with their technical expertise, business advice, and moral support.
Euzine is proud to present one of our five artist talks of the day! Lawrence Lindell is giving a presentation titled : Comics as Therapy and Self Expression! Check the schedule posted at the fest for Lawrence's time slot! Can't wait!!!!
Lawrence Lindell is a cartoonist, educator and musician from California. He created the books From Black Boy With Love pt 1&2, Couldn’t Afford Therapy So I Made This, Both and Then Some: Tales of the Inbetween and a whole roster of mini comics. Lindell’s comics focus on Blackness, Queerness, and Mental Health. In his own words he likes to say he makes comics for Black Women, Black People, People of Color, Queer Folks and Folks With Mental Health Issues.
