About the Founder's Portfolio

The Founder's Portfolio is a collection of seventeen original hand pulled prints by the Founding Members and included Charter Members of the NWPC. Available for purchase and in a range of media and printmaking techniques, this historic document includes significant premier printmakers of the region. Among those included is perhaps the best known of the Founding Members, Dr. Gordon Gilkey.

As a young man in World War II, Gordon Gilkey was commissioned to recover and restore to their rightful owners the many works of art pilfered and hidden by the Third Reich. In honor of this work, he was promoted to the rank of Officer in the French Legion of Honor. First MFA graduate in printmaking at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Gilkey was also the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Oregon State University. After a long and distinguished career at the OSU he moved to Portland, Oregon to teach printmaking at Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA), and\ to share his knowledge and passion for prints. Upon his retirement, Dr. Gilkey established the Vivian and Gordon Gilkey Center for the Graphic Arts at the Portland Art Museum. Dr. Gilkey's influence in the world of art and printmaking cannot be overstated. He was an active member of the Board of Directors of the NWPC until his death in 2000.
