Photos and Story by James Hill
SYLVANIA CAMPUS – Portland Community College’s Northview Gallery is featuring the work of the late well-known Northwest painter and muralist William Dyas Garnett. The long-time PCC faculty member’s "A Retrospective" exhibit will be on display from Monday, March 28 through April 25. Spanning a period of 30 years, the exhibit includes Garnett’s earlier pop-influenced paintings, works from the "Cape Disappointment Series" and a sampling of his numerous, exquisite sketches and drawings. The Missouri native taught at almost every major school in Portland including Portland State University, Clackamas and Mt. Hood community colleges, and Oregon College of Art and Craft. He also helped to establish the Artist-in-the-Schools Program, which he received the Governors Award for the Arts in 1978. The Northview Gallery, located in Room 214 of the CT Building of the Sylvania Campus (12000 S.W. 49th Ave.), is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information on this exhibition, contact Marie Watt, gallery director, at 503-977-8017.
