PORTLAND, OR – During the month of October, galleries throughout Portland will collaborate to present a large-scale display of work by dozens of Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) faculty, alumni and faculty emeriti. In honor of the College’s centennial academic year, Portland’s urban core will overflow with this significant recognition of PNCA’s long legacy by some of the foremost retail art galleries in the city.

Participating venues include Augen Gallery, Beppu Wiarda Gallery, Butters Gallery, Charles A Hartman Fine Art, Elizabeth Leach Gallery, Froelick Gallery, Laura Russo Gallery, Pulliam Gallery and Mark Woolley/Anka Gallery.
PNCA artists included represent a broad scope of the College’s history from Louis Bunce, faculty member in the 1940s, to alum Miles Cleveland Goodwin ’07. Other notable featured artists include alumnae Sally Cleveland ’81 and Linda Hutchins ’88, as well as former faculty emeriti Manuel Izquierdo ’50 and Lucinda Parker ’66. Several group shows will be involved, including a collection of 13 PNCA artists’ work curated by Mark Woolley for Anka Gallery, while Laura Russo Gallery features 18 individual PNCA artists. View the most up-to-date listing of participating galleries and artists here.
An additional related program takes place the first weekend of October, in conjunction with PNCA’s annual Alumni Weekend October 2 – 4. Friday, October 2 at 6pm in PNCA’s Swigert Commons, alumnus Lee Kelly ’59 delivers the 2009 Homecoming Lecture, in conversation with Bruce Guenther, Chief Curator at the Portland Art Museum.
