Happenings at the Museum of Northwest Art

T he Museum Of Northwest Art will celebrate the work of Artist James B. Thomson, Professor of art at Willamette University with a lecture by the artist on April 2nd at 2PM. His topic, related to his paintings of “The Vanishing Landscape. Thompson’s work is in the small gallery on the first floor, which is usually a glass gallery

The main floor gallery is all glass this time! Pilchuck School glass students in this group refer to their group as “Act 2” because most of them have had other unrelated careers and came to art glass later in their lives.

The work is varied and much of it has been inspired by the Pilchuck philosophy which encourages students to focus on experimentation and not on end results. In working with glass many techniques are possible and many techniques are represented by the work of these artists.

The second floor gallery is devoted to the work of Jay Steinsmae (1941-1994).
