Portland Prints Artist Residency: IPRC Artists
This city is home to one of the most energetic, thriving, and innovative printmaking scenes in the country. From art schools, artist collectives, entrepreneurs, makers, and suppliers to collectors, galleries, and museums, Portland has become a creative hub for making prints. In conjunction with the current exhibitions featuring artists Andy Warhol and Corita Kent, the Museum is partnering with the Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC) to host a series of artist residencies.
Jillian Barthold is an illustrator and printmaker originally from nowhere. She studied art in Chicago where she went on to develop an affinity for screen printing and book binding among other forms of craft. Jillian’s work is heavily inspired by the Japanese world view or aesthetic of wabi-sabi, travel, and child-like wonder. Her work acts as a magnifying glass to explore the everyday objects that surround us. Her other enjoyments include, but are not limited to, staring at the moon, sitting in the ocean, and playing fetch with her cats. She is based in Portland, OR.
Walker Cahall is a wily fox of a man who loves to draw, go on adventures, and make things. He went to the California Institute of the Arts and studied printmaking and animation.

He runs on burritos and high fives and loves to collaborate.
