Marie Watt: Everything Is Drawing

Marie Watt (Seneca), Willamette University '90, is a highly regarded Portland mixed media artist who teaches at Portland Community College. A small exhibition of Watt's work will open Jan. 8 and continue through March 5 in the Study Gallery at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University.

Organized by Professor Rebecca Dobkins, the exhibition is a continuation of Watt's blanket project, which explores the complexities of, and the human stories wrapped within, this everyday object. The exhibition includes prints and woven samplers from a solo exhibition at the National Museum of the American Indian in New York, where Watt was recognized as one of the most talented contemporary artists of her generation.

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is located at 700 State Street (corner of State and Cottage Streets) in downtown Salem near the University campus. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The galleries are closed on Sunday and Monday. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for seniors and students. Children under 12 are admitted free and Tuesday is an admission-free day.
