Sitka Invitational 2014 at the Forestry Center in Portland wrapped up Nov 9th with another impressive exhibition and sale of Northwest art.
Many Rowboat artists were represented again this year. For a list of participating artists and for general information about Sitka and the programs and workshops offered, visit the Sitka Center for Art & Ecology website.
Bonnie Laing-Malcolmson, Curator of Northwest Art at the Portland Art Museum, guided a group of Museum members on a visit to the gallery recently, inspired in part by our collection of paintings and sculpture by John Stahl (e.g. Cascade, painting and collage, above).
Stahl taught at the Portland Museum School in the 70’s, when Ms. Laing-Malcolmson was was earning a BFA in painting, sculpture, and printmaking.
