We dropped in to the Hallie Ford Museum of Art today to see the progress on the installation of the exhibition of Lucinda Parker’s paintings. R’s cousin Lisa was visiting overnight and though she has her copy of R’s book on the work of painter Lucinda Parker,
she won’t be able to be at the opening of the exhibition and Parker’s lecture on Saturday, January 19th. (Lisa teaches in the Law School at Rutgers in New Jersey and the cousins grew up together in Wallace, Idaho…) Lisa was delighted to have the chance to see the exhibition as it was being installed…
The earliest work in the show is from Parker’s high school years including this self portrait, and a fully confident river painting foreshadowing later work…
The paintings are large and vibrant and look great in the museum’s varied set of spaces…
A few explanatory comments from the curator…
Everything isn’t up yet,
but the show is gorgeous
Lucinda Parker’s lecture will be at 5:00 p.m. January 19th, 2019, in the Paulus lecture hall in the law school at Willamette University, with the opening to follow at the museum. Hope to see you there! The exhibition is up until the end of March though so you have plenty of time to come visit.
Bye bye Lisa…great to see you…
bonnie, what a preview! your photos are fabulous. thank you! and “force fields” is one perfect title for parker’s work.
the woman is a force of nature for sure…like you guys!
Very exciting! I have my copy of the book and look forward to seeing the show..
Can’t wait to see it and hear her speak!
She speaks interestingly about her work…(not ALWAYS true of artists…)
A really fine posting, Bonnie. It’s a shame that Al and I will be in Centralia on the l9th for the delayed Christmas gathering with family. But I sure do want to see this show. Compelling! Ginny
Roger would love to walk through with you and Al when yoou get back…show up until March 31st!
Bonnie, I will not be able to attend the lecture on the 19th. Will the Ford Museum be recording the
It’s fun to have the opportunity to preview the exhibit as it is being installed.
