Liberal and Phenomenal are two exhibits affiliated with the inaugural NW5 Painting Colloquium. Linda Besemer, the James Irvine Distinguished Professor of the Arts at Occidental College, will be the colloquium's keynote speaker.
Liberal features work by the five painting professors who teach at the NW5 colleges: Michael Knutson (Reed College), Richard Martinez (Whitman), Cara Tomlinson (Lewis & Clark College), James Thompson (Willamette University), and Elise Richman (University of Puget Sound).
Phenomenal involves five painters, Eric Elliott, Anne Gale, Emily Gherard, Ron Graff, and Jan Reaves, whose work exemplifies painting’s phenomenal potential to represent and reveal subjective experience through its shared language.
The exhibit is free and open to the public from Monday, Oct. 2–Saturday, Nov. 4.
No registration required.
Kittredge Gallery hours: Mon.–Fri., 10 a.m.–5 p.m.; Sat., noon–5 p.m.
