March 1st Friday & Lecture with Carol Novotne

5:00 PM17:00

March 1st Friday & Lecture with Carol Novotne

Please join us for our monthly First Friday!

This Month, local painter, carol Novotne will join us and give a lecture on color and value.

“The show is essentially a study of a single object, “The Granary,”  as it appears in different seasons of the year.  What the artist learns, is that the singular object remains the same while the wild and beautiful earth and sky change around it!  Nothing drab, wild shocking color!  Color most artists would not put in a painting because they do not see it as it really is.

 I compiled 273 images of this granary over the past 19 years, to learn about color and  value and how light and seasons effect the artist’s eye and therefore how they paint.” -Carol Novotne

The lecture will begin at approximately 5:30

Hope to see you there!

The History of Art and Social Change

The History of Art and Social Change

What is the role of the artist in society? An artist can lead, follow, uplift or provoke with their work. Creative thinking for social change can come from politicians, economists or business leaders just as it can come from musicians, journalists and visual artists. The arts provide pleasure and creative inspiration; they also foster dialogue and bring important issues to the public eye. Aside from documenting history, Do we believe artists provoke Cross-cultural understanding? Can they enhance community engagement? Do they have an important role in exploring creative solutions to social issues? Join us in this lively presentation and discussion about the role of art in history and current society.

On The Panel: Current Holter Museum Artist in residence Michelle Summersand Current long term Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts residents Jessica A Brandl and Benjamin Carter

Lisa Jarrett Artist Talk
Oct

6:30 PM18:30

Lisa Jarrett Artist Talk

In Conjunction with Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate, Join us for an Artist Talk with resident artist, Lisa Jarrett.

Lisa Jarrett was born in 1977 in Morristown, New Jersey. Growing up as a Black American who moved with her family to various, often conflicting political climates in cities in Texas, Minnesota, and New York, the influences of her upbringing in a post-Civil Rights and increasingly so-called “post-racial” America are apparent in her work, which confronts ideas of racial difference and perceptions of racial equity.

 

Though conflating comparisons of Self and Other within a racial context are surely not limited to the American Black Experience and can be examined in myriad global racial milieus, Jarrett’s work is typically centered upon deconstructing, defragmenting, and, in turn, reconstructing and reassembling her personal experiences as a Black woman in America into projects that ask viewers to consider their own roles in present-day race relations.

 

Jarrett lives and works in Portland, Oregon, where she teaches classes in art and social practice at Portland State University's School of Art + Design. She exhibits nationally and currently has work in the Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hateexhibition.
