Lucinda Parker Gallery Showing at Rock Creek Campus
Photos and Story by Meryl Lipman
The Rock Creek Helzer Art Gallery is showing Lucinda Parker’s fire art glass, drawings and collages. The gallery is in Building 3, room 106, and will show Parker’s art Oct. 4 through Nov. 12. The exhibition will consist of approximately 25 drawings and collages that trace Parker’s thoughts and ideas, as she moved from small, early drawings to scale models of the actual piece. Viewers will be able to understand Parker’s decisions on motifs, lines and colors and how she translated them from paper into a vocabulary suitable for glass.
This exhibition, the first of the Helzer Art Gallery’s 2010-2011 season, is a behind-the-scenes look at one work of art: Parker’s “Evening Sun,” a fused-glass relief sculpture commissioned by a private client.
Parker, who has traditionally worked in paints, will hold an artist’s talk at noon, Thursday, Oct. 14 in Room 128, Building 2. The exhibit and artist’s talk are free and open to the public. Parker has had previous showings at the Portland Art Museum, PNCA and one of her alma maters Reed College. She is represented by Laura Russo Gallery and her work hangs in the Oregon Convention Center and Lower Columbia College.
