FRIDAY, JULY 15, 6:00 - 7:45 PM
Portland Art Museum
1219 SW Park Avenue
Join Contemporary Northwest Art Award recipient Megan Murphy for a discussion and tour of her work in the exhibition. Seattle artist John Grade will also discuss and give a tour of his work.
Megan Murphy’s paintings can be found in public collections including the Yale Art Museum Collection, Boise Art Museum, and the Microsoft Collection. Her concern for our fragile natural environment is literally reflected in the media she chooses to employ. Combining photographs with mirror and layers of paint and text that she repeatedly applies and rubs away, Murphy creates a surface that is partially reflective, opaque, and transparent. Her work has been exhibited across the country. Murphy holds a BFA from Marylhurst University and an MA in theology from Mt. Angel Abbey, Saint Benedict, Ore.
