* Sometimes the quietest and most soft spoken people change our lives in ways that enrich us and our society as a whole. Thus is the story of the Washington artist, Jacob Kainen. We have included a very long interview with Kainen and Evis Berman of the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution from1982. When one reads this, one understands why Kainen was the major force that turned around the Washington DC area's slow-paced contemporary art scene.


* Seattle's Sam Davidson began collecting original prints when he was an undergraduate and he has never stopped. As a matter of fact his love of prints continued to grow into what is now one of the largest inventories of fine art anywhere. Davidson is a scholar and gentleman with a whimsical sense of humor. Read more about Sam and Davidson Galleries.
