2017 and Beyond

The PIPEX cover exhibit may ride again in 2018!

I received a request from a member of the PIPEX committee to show the exhibit of PIPEX covers in the Court of Conor at PIPEX 2018. Hopefully the committee will discuss it and approve this display for showing.

If you would like to donate items (labels, covers or exhibition programs) or send scans that would fill gaps on these pages, please drop me a line at sheryll at sheryll dot net.

Club Showcase Exhibits


The PIPEX 2014 prospectus invited each Northwest Federation of Stamp Club member club to show a frame of one-page exhibit pages prepared by members. The idea for this initiative in exhibiting was taken from SEAPEX, as well as a few other shows around the country.


As the themed exhibit from Evergreen Stamp Society proved most popular in 2014, Oregon Stamp Society (OSS) members put together a themed exhibit on Oregon for the 2015 PIPEX. That year a cup was awarded to the most popular exhibit, which was themed "Oregon Country" and put together by the Pacific Northwest Postal History Society.

The OSS Oregon exhibit was aired again at SEAPEX 2015. 


It was expanded slightly for display in the Collins Gallery at the Multnomah County Library as part of the Stamps: Pathways to Our World exhibition held from July 9 till August 21.


We decided to use the idea of spelling out the phrase STAMP COLLECTING in 15 one-page exhibits for our PIPEX 2017 club showcase exhibits. Letters were selected and soon member exhibitors had made some quite colorful, fun and informative pages. When it was finally put in the frames at PIPEX 2017, it won the PIPEX Cup award for best Club Showcase exhibit.

It was displayed with the cup from May 15 till July 12 at Shute Park Branch Library in Hillsboro. It was shown again at SEAPEX 2017.


After a meeting of brainstorming 20 themes, we held a vote for a shortlist. The idea of Dead Countries was most popular, so it was selected.
