Bonnie Hull: Memory as Myth
August 20 – October 17, 2020
Study Gallery and Print Study Center
Salem, Oregon artist Bonnie Hull (American, born 1944) has been making drawings, paintings, and quilts in Salem for 50 years. In Memory as Myth, Hull brings together new work in combination with examples of her earlier production, intertwining forms and ideas to demonstrate that "Memory is a complicated thing, a relative truth but not its twin," as author Barbara Kingsolver observes in her book Animal Dreams."
The exhibition features new work created specifically for the exhibition as well as a variety of other work spanning her life as an artist and includes a selection of her drawing books from over the years.
This exhibition has been supported by general operating support grants from the City of Salem's Transient Occupancy Tax funds and the Oregon Arts Commission. Advertising support has been provided by the Oregon ArtsWatch Full Circle Fund.
