Pacific Northwest College of Arts is turning 100 This Year and the art department at Portland Community College has produced a series of videos profiling PNCA faculty.
This historical film will debut as part of Portland Art Museum’s “PNCA at 100” exhibition that will run through the summer at PAM.
The film will screen for the first time on Thursday, 7.16.09 at 7pm
VISITING ARTIST—IN THE STUDIO, a series of films produced by Portland Community College, documents three former Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) faculty members, all established Northwest masters with accomplished bodies of work and distinguished teaching careers, at work in their studios. Former Portland Art Museum Curator and co-producer Prudence Roberts places these three artists within the cultural history of Portland. At age 90, Eunice Parsons is making the strongest work of her long career—collages created from scratch in a process as spontaneous as it is methodical. (26 mins.) Harry Widman brings a non-objective painter's perspective to the mystery of the image, whether it be the figure, creature, or pure abstraction—each work an existentialist arena of activity. (28 mins.) Painter and printmaker George Johanson works on large paintings of bathers and jazz musicians, and shares his working drawings and pages from his sketch books while he gives an intimate account of his creative process. (38 mins.)
Please take advantage of this exciting opportunity to participate in PNCA’s milestone and better understand the art of the Pacific Northwest.
