  • Marie Watt | Printing Circle with Marie Watt

    Growing out of the sewing circle gatherings that have been integral to the artist’s practice, this printing circle is an opportunity for community members to come together and create printmaking plates and prints that will be integrated into future works by Watt. Attendees can also contribute their prints to an emergent installation in the Center’s Leslie and Johanna Garfield Lobby that will evolve over the course of the exhibition.

    Important Notes
    No experience is necessary and all ages are welcome. Materials will be provided.

    While supplies last, participants will receive a small print from Marie Watt in exchange for their time and participation.

    RSVP is encouraged but not required; visitors may join at any time as space allows.

  • Gus Van Sant | Director "Feud: Capote Vs. the Swans"

    David Bianculli of NPR write
    "FX is promoting Feud: Capote vs. the Swans as "the original Real Housewives," but it's a lot deeper than that — and infinitely more watchable. Based on the book Capote's Women, by Laurence Leamer, this eight-part series tells of Truman Capote's friendships with, and betrayals of, New York's most prominent society women — the ladies who lunch."

  • Joe Rudko | Acquisition by The Morgan Library

    Joe Rudko’s work Stage has been acquired by the @themorganlibrary in New York City and will be included in Seen Together: Acquisitions in Photography, on view January 26 through May 26, 2024.

    “Seen Together showcases over forty previously unexhibited works acquired by the Morgan’s Department of Photography since its founding in 2012. The pieces selected, and their thematic arrangements, reflect the department’s two highest priorities: first, to build a photography collection that converses with other collections at the Morgan, including drawings, printed books, and literary manuscripts; and second, to draw from widely varied historical contexts and traditions for photographs that collectively tell larger stories about the medium.”

    Congratulations, Joe!

  • Marie Watt | PEM Awardee

    From the Peabody Essex Museum
    "Artists change the way we see and interact with the world.

    The PEM Prize is presented to artists from any field whose work explores the catalytic relationship between creativity and civic engagement. Reinvigorating and reimagining the communities in which we live, these artists are leaders, connecting us to the possibilities that exist for a more inclusive and understanding world.

    Along with a cash award, the PEM Prize recipient receives the opportunity to work with the museum on a project or series of projects that will be accessible to all. While each project will assume a different form, PEM Prize awardees will be individuals or groups who strive to deepen our global cultural connections, ignite our imaginations and inspire us to action.

    This year’s PEM Prize is awarded to artist Marie Watt (Seneca and German-Scots). She will be creating a piece to be completed onsite, creating a multisensory experience in collaboration with the museum’s community as part of the PEM Prize from November 2023 through June of 2024.

    The PEM Prize Awardee is selected by a committee of museum staff and leadership for their catalytic use of creative expression in civic engagement."

  • Heather Watkins | Sun Valley Museum of Art

    We are pleased to share that Heather Watkins work is included in Bodies of Work: Art & Healing at the Sun Valley Museum of Art. Bodies of Work: Art & Healing will be on view January 12 - March 23, 2024. Participating artists include: Katherine Shaughnessy, Heather Watkins, Renée Stout, Katherine Sherwood, Estelle L. Roberge, and Dylan Mortimer.

    “The notion that making and experiencing the arts can be healing has a long history. At the beginning of the 20th century, tuberculosis patients “taking the cure” at sanatoria often participated in structured arts and crafts programs. Wounded soldiers recuperating during World War II were taught “lap crafts,” such as beading and embroidery, as part of their medical therapy. The arts have served as powerful medicine for both mind and body for centuries.
When planning for this exhibition considering the connection between art and healing began, the Covid-19 pandemic was dominating headlines around the globe. How do the arts help us process and/or recover from medical illness? How can they help us navigate the complex experience of what it is to be a medical patient facing serious illness in the 21st century? And how can art help us heal from other kinds of social and emotional trauma?

    The exhibition features artwork by several contemporary artists who have used their practices as ways of exploring and processing their own experience of medical illness and also the experiences of others. Working in a range of media and from widely varying points of view and experiences, these artists have made art as part of their own healing and in order to enable the healing of others.”

  • Iván Carmona | Black Artists of Oregon — Portland Art Museum

    Iván Carmona is included in Black Artists of Oregon, currently on view at the Portland Art Museum.

    Black Artists of Oregon, curated by Intisar Abioto, highlights and celebrates the work of Black artists in and outside of the museum collection.

    “Considering both the presence and absence of Black artists is critical to understanding the breadth of Black artistic production in Oregon—even in the midst of historic exclusion—as well as how the impact of that history affects our understanding of American art history and the history of the Pacific Northwest. This exhibition serves to deepen our awareness of the talented artists who have shaped and inspired artists regionally and nationally, and it will be the first of its kind to consider the work of Black artists collectively in Oregon. Beginning in the 1880s and spanning through today, Black Artists of Oregon captures the Black diasporic experiences particular to the Pacific Northwest with 69 artists and over 200 objects…”

    The exhibition remains on view through March 17, 2023.

  • VOLTA New York Art Fair 2023 | Nick Blosser

    We are pleased to be exhibiting at VOLTA New York, May 17-21, 2023 with a solo booth by Nick Blosser.

    Nick Blosser works primarily in egg tempera and watercolor and paints from small study-drawings that he creates while out in the woods and fields. He chooses places that might look quite ordinary at a cursory glance, but are ripe with intrigue that he can explore in his work. After receiving the Rome Prize in 1984, he spent time studying the Classical masterworks in Italy, and this knowledge of the art historical past has deeply influenced his work in both form and material.

    Nick Blosser approaches the world quietly and carefully, observing and noting the patterns, colors, and magic of nature. His paintings capture the quivering aliveness of nature. The more time spent with a Blosser painting the greater the rewards as one notices the many subtleties of shading and abstract composition the trees, branches, brambles, hills, and sky make. The paintings continue to hold one's attention year after year.

    Since the beginning of Fall 2022, Heather Watkins has participated in a year-long residency at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at PSU, working with faculty and students in two Freshman Inquiry learning communities. Through workshops, guest lectures, studio visits, and other creative pedagogies, Watkins collaborated with students to create new avenues for understanding and experiencing Watkins’ two public artworks, located on the PSU campus: Score (2014), Lincoln Performance Hall; and Soundings: Opening, Fathoming, Grounding, Searching, Returning (2020), Vanport Building. In this artist talk, Watkins will deliver an overview of this initiative in community-engaged learning that has allowed her to reanimate previous artworks with special attention to artistic process and modes of interpretation. She will also talk about her role in the inaugural curricular exhibition Beautiful Questions, which is currently on view in the Broadway Gallery in Lincoln Hall. Finally, Watkins will discuss the development of a publication (which she received a RACC Arts3C grant to produce) that will encapsulate and archive this exciting and multifaceted project.

    Lecture will be held in Lincoln Hall, RM 225. This program is free and open to the public. ASL interpreting will be provided.*
