May 17, 2018 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
Sherrie Wolf graduated from Pacific Northwest College of Art in 1974 and began exhibiting her work in the mid 1970s while teaching art at PNCA. Her exquisitely detailed paintings play with the fact that all art is artifice and explore the contrived or discovered relationships between seemingly unrelated objects. Join us for a conversation between Sherrie and Bonnie Laing-Malcolmson ‘78, former Curator of Northwest Art at Portland Art Museum.
This Evening With An Artist is presented with support from Russo Lee Gallery.

ABOUT THE EVENING WITH AN ARTIST SERIES
Throughout Portland, you can see the influence of PNCA’s student, alumni, and faculty artists and designers on the cultural landscape of the city. You can encounter their work in galleries and artist-run spaces, in exhibitions and permanent collections, and as public art on streets and along transit corridors.
In this new event series, PNCA presents intimate conversations with emerging and established artists who share a deep connection with PNCA. We hope you will join us for an Evening With An Artist this spring.
