4 p.m., Feldenheimer Gallery, Studio Art Building
Heather Watkins speaks about her work in conjunction with the exhibition Gradual Instant; a reception in the gallery follows, 5:30–7:30 p.m.
Additionally, we invite you to see Heather's solo exhibition, Movements of Objects at Rest, in its last week here at PDX Contemporary Art.
"Watkins' show is dominated by a series of poured ink works on paper … sumptuous pools of ink, which fork into thick bands and slinky rivulets … reveal[ing] her openness to chance, her willingness to permit the ink a voice in the collaboration. In that sense, Watkins' project take its cues from John Cage's methodical use of chance in creating his artworks, as well as the poured canvases of second-wave Abstract Expressionist painters such as Kenneth Noland, Helen Frankenthaler and Morris Louis."
