Hallie Ford Museum of Art Focuses on Work of Harry Widman
January 29, 2009
A retrospective exhibit of paintings and works on paper of former Pacific Northwest College of Art professor Harry Widman will be on display January 31 – March 29 at the “Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University”:http://www.willamette.edu/museum_of_art/index.htm.
“Harry Widman: Image, Myth, and Modernism” surveys Widman’s works over the past 60 years, including works created during his over 35 years of service at Pacific Northwest College of Art. Widman studied at the University of Oregon in the ‘50s and taught at the Museum Art School (now the Pacific Northwest College of Art), from 1961 to 1997. He served as Acting Director of PNCA from 1978 – 1981 and returned to give the College Commencement address in May 1996.
The exhibition, curated by Willamette University’s art history professor Roger Hull, will feature 38 paintings and 17 works on paper drawn from public and private collections. Hull also has assembled a full-color, 112-page book that attempts to contextualize Widman’s work within the artistic events of his time.
The Center for Contemporary Art & Culture at Pacific Northwest College of Art is excited to invite the public to the October First Thursday Art Walk in the North Park Blocks for a series of exhibition openings, performances, live music, drop-in activities and refreshments!
