Documents Northwest: The PONCHO Series (DocsNW) presented 43 solo, 5 two-person and 14 group exhibitions at the Seattle Art Museum over a 21-year period (1983-2004). The series, supported by a local philanthropic arts organization, PONCHO (Patrons of Northwest Civic, Cultural and Charitable Organizations), highlighted predominantly mid-career artists born or living in the Pacific Northwest. For each exhibition, the Seattle Art Museum published a four- to eight-page printed brochure which included: introductory essays by curators and guest writers, photography, biographical and bibliographical information, along with an exhibition checklist. The physical collection of brochures is held at the Seattle Art Museum's Dorothy Stimson Bullitt Library.
The International Exhibition of Northwest Printmakers was an annual exhibition begun at the Henry Art Gallery at the University of Washington in 1929, that then transitioned to the Seattle Art Museum in 1934. The exhibition continued at SAM until the 1971 Seattle Print International: Northwest Printmakers 42nd Annual Exhibition, its final exhibition. Similar to the Northwest Annual Exhibitions (painting and sculpture) and the Northwest Watercolor Society Annual Exhibitions, the International Exhibition of Northwest Printmakers featured many prominent and upcoming regional artists, but also included printmakers from outside the region and around the world. This exhibition includes checklists, photographs, and other ephemera spanning the years of the exhibition, 1929-1971.
