Photos and Story by James Hill
PORTLAND, Ore. – The Northview Gallery is getting into metal.
The Portland Community College art gallery will host the exhibit, “Metals Today,” from Monday, Jan. 8 through Feb. 7. The gallery is located in Room 214 of the CT Building of the Sylvania Campus (12000 S.W. 49th Ave.).
“Metals Today” is a collection of works by three metal artists and how they view their role in today’s art scene. Each artist is an accomplished metal smith or jeweler, and each has found new and unique ways of expressing their voices in traditional and non-traditional works that may include metal.
The artists include Heidi Schwegler and Junko Iijima of Portland, and Sarah Graham of San Francisco, Calif. The artists will host a talk and reception on Thursday, Jan. 11 from 3 to 6 p.m. in the gallery.
The Northview Gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, contact Gene Flores, gallery director, at 503-977-8315.
