Portland Prints Artist Residency: Roger Peet
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.
Roger Peet is an artist and printmaker based in Portland, Oregon. His current work in graphic art addresses issues of extinction, biocultural diversity and environmental disaster with an emphasis on conflict between culture and nature. He is a founding member of the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative, a group of North American artists producing socially and environmentally engaged works. He creates his imagery by hand, using analog methods of paper and film cutting, linoleum block-printing and stencil to create emotionally expressive, information-rich narrative images. He is also a muralist, writer, installation artist, and puppeteer. He has organized international collaborative printmaking projects and installations, developed artistic tools in the service of conservation, and collaborated with activists, artists and scientists across the globe. He is the president of the board of directors at the Flight 64 print studio in NE Portland.
