B&B + Regional Arts & Culture Council Calendar – February 2022

In 2022, B&B Print Source is proud to partner with the Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) to bring you a full-year calendar. Each month features works by renowned Northwest artists. Every page showcases a unique specialty printing process to illustrate the capabilities possible in digital and offset printing. You can order the calendar absolutely free by jumping on our list HERE.


Barbara Earl Thomas is an African American artist from Seattle, Washington. Her work encompasses a variety of mediums, often with the intention of carrying a narrative.

Thomas’ most recent imagery on the steel exterior panels of the Multnomah County Central Courthouse building that opened in October 2020 is no different.

This paper cut panel is the basis for 1 of 33 permanent stainless steel panels installed like postcards on the outside of Multnomah County’s Central Courthouse that take the viewer on a trip across Multnomah County. 

“Vista House and Gorge” reflects the river as a lifeline, a powerful symbol speaking to our responsibility to the land, natural resources, and each other.  

Read more about this project and the inspiration behind the art in this interview with Barbara.
