James B. Thompson | Water is Sacred: Water is Life

April 14 – May 13, 2018

Atrium Gallery

Each spring, the Hallie Ford Museum of Art pairs its annual senior art majors exhibition with a small solo exhibition of recent work by one of the faculty members in the art department at Willamette University. This year, the exhibition will focus on recent work by Professor James B. Thompson (American, born 1951), who teaches courses in painting, printmaking, drawing, and design. 

In this new body of work, Thompson explores the themes of water and water waste through mixed media paintings on paper, mixed media prints on paper, kiln-formed glass panels, and mixed media sculpture on panels.

Opening Reception
April 13, 2018 | 6-8 p.m.
Hallie Ford Museum of Art
Free and open to the public

RSVP ONLINE BY APRIL 9 (acceptances only)

Financial support for the exhibition was provided by general operating support grants from the City of Salem's Transient Occupancy Tax funds and the Oregon Arts Commission.
