Ink for Alaska
In this exhibit, Portland, OR artists, Barbara Mason and Alex Prentiss, use their talents to help raise awareness and money for the Alaska Wilderness League. Believing in the effort to preserve Alaska’s wild lands and waters, they developed a project using their life experiences in printmaking and invited others to participate in a juried printmaking exhibit showcasing the Art of the Print, with work inspired by Alaska and the northern wilderness. 


Main Gallery Exhibit:
June 10 - August 20
Richard Sierra: Prints
Richard Serra is well-known for his monumental steel sculptures which arc and spiral, altering a viewer’s experience of space as they move around them. In Richard Serra: Prints, the Kimball Art Center offers a fresh look at this artist’s practice. Moving back and forth between these two mediums, he explores the complex relationship between his large-scale sculpture, the body, and surrounding space. His pared-down black and white prints are highly evocative of this physical experience and, with new approaches to traditional techniques, represent 45 years of compelling experimentation in the medium of printmaking. This exhibition is drawn from the collections of the Jordan D. Schnitzer Family Foundation.
