EUGENE, ORE.- "Celebrating Oregon Artists: Recent Additions to the Collection” is on view June 18 – September 15, 2013, in the Artist Project Space at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art. Featured in the exhibition are works acquired in the past five years by artists working in Ashland, Eugene, Newport, and Portland.

“From the large-scale paintings of Rick Bartow and Whitney Nye to the intimate ambrotypes of Susan Seubert and the blocky, geometric sculptures of Mel Katz, these works demonstrate the breadth and depth of creativity, imagination, and skill that flourish in Oregon,” says assistant curator June Koehler. “These artists also represent our commitment to exhibiting works by living artists from our state and community,” she adds.

Featured in the exhibition are works by Michael Allred, Rick Bartow, Michael Brophy, Tom Cramer, Mel Katz, Betty LaDuke, Whitney Nye, Lucinda Parker, Dan Powell, Jim Riswold, Susan Seubert, Kenneth Bruce Shores, Ken Standhart, and Gary Tepfer. While some artists were born in the state and others moved to the Pacific Northwest later in life, all of them have become integral to Oregon’s artistic landscape.

“Celebrating Oregon Artists” is part of the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art’s 80th Anniversary Celebration, which includes “Living Legacies: The JSMA @ 80,” an exhibition of more than 250 works on loan from private collections, on view through September 1; “JSMA @ 80,” a museum-wide installation of works the JSMA has acquired in the past five years;; and the West Coast premiere of “Light Journey: An Odyssey in Paint,” a retrospective exhibition of the art of Su Kwak.

The Artist Project Space was created in 2012 by generous funding from The Ford Family Foundation, Bank of America Foundation, Inc., and the William C. Mitchell Estate.
