GOLDENDALE, WA.- American Andy Warhol (1928-1987), one of the most celebrated artists of the 20th Century, is coming to Maryhill Museum of Art in the spectacular Columbia River Gorge for a four-month exhibit in the form of his famous prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation.

During the 1960s Warhol began to explore the iconic status of everyday objects such as his images of Campbell's soup cans and his portraits of such notable personalities as Marilyn Monroe and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The work he produced established Warhol as the rising star in what was to become known as the Pop Movement. In the 1970s his fascination with portraiture grew and he began producing dozens of vibrant portraits that had a lasting effect on popular culture and art.

"Andy Warhol bridged the gap between popular and high culture and made it easier for succeeding generations to participate in fine art," said Maryhill Museum Curator Lee Musgrave. "His approach shattered earlier conventions of portraiture and other artist shared his enthusiasm for this new art."

Opening on Saturday, July 19, the Andy Warhol & Other Famous Faces exhibit includes portraits by Warhol of The Beatles, Sitting Bull, General Custer, Geronimo, Queen Elizabeth II, Jimmy Carter, Marilyn Monroe, Liza Minnelli, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the emblematic Campbell's Soup Can (Tomato), and others.

Also shown are portraits by artists Jennifer Bartlett, Chuck Close, Osvaldo Salas Freire, Red Grooms, Jasper Johns, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, Mel Ramos, Robert Rauschenberg, and Tom Wesselman. They portray Elvis Presley, Charlie Chaplin, Vincent Van Gogh, Ernest Hemingway, John and Robert Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, Mona Lisa, and others.

On July 24, at 7 p.m., noted art critic Sue Taylor will present Andy Warhol, Postmodern Persona in a public lecture that will highlight Warhol's impact on pop culture. The talk is free with museum admission.

All work in the exhibit is on loan from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation. Schnitzer began collecting art at the age of fourteen and it has become his lifelong pursuit. He is a connoisseur whose contemporary print collection exceeds 5,000 works.

On Saturday, August 2, at 3 p.m., the public is invited to meet Jordan Schnitzer and hear him talk about his collections. The talk will be followed by a walk with Lee Musgrave through the exhibit. From 1 to 4 p.m., visitors will be encouraged to join the museum's education staff to create a free self-portrait using Andy Warhol's "blotted line technique". For those with a serious interest in printmaking, noted master printer Frank Janzen will lead a mono-print workshop, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cost of the workshop is $60 and advance registration is required.

Andy Warhol & Other Famous Faces marks the third exhibition of works loaned by Jordan Schnitzer that Maryhill Museum of Art has organized. The exhibit and related programs are sponsored in part by Puget Sound Energy, the Jordan D. Schnitzer Family Foundation, Bill and Cathy Dickson, Diane Plumridge and Art Dodd, and Windy Point Partners LLC.

Related Events: Mono-Print Workshop with Frank Janzen: Mono-printing is a painterly method of printmaking that is essentially a printed painting where no two prints are alike, and the beauty of it is in its spontaneity. This in-depth workshop is taught by master-printmaker Frank Janzen from Crow's Shadow's Institute for the Arts. Crow's Shadow's first full-time resident master printer, Frank, is an artist in his own right, working mainly in printmaking and painting, and has collaborated with numerous artists of note throughout the United States, Canada and South Africa to create limited edition lithographs. Founded by artist James Lavadour and a group of supporters in 1992, Crow's Shadow's Institute for the Arts is a non-profit art facility designed to bring technology, instruction and cultural exchange to artists on the Umatilla Indian Reservation in Eastern Oregon. The workshop is Saturday, August 2, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Reservations are required and the cost is $50 plus a $10 materials fee.
