Sutinen and King Featured as Influential Artists

The Hoffman Gallery at Lewis & Clark College will debut a major collection of new art from some of the Pacific Northwest's most influential contemporary artists.

Opening September 7, 2011, the exhibition will feature the work of 20 past fellows of the Bonnie Bronson Fund, including Marylhurst's Paul Sutinen and Carolyn King.

Bonnie Bronson Fellows: 20 Years is the first gallery event to bring these artists together in one exhibition.

The Lewis & Clark exhibition is the centerpiece of a multi-part tribute to the legacy of Bonnie Bronson, a powerful force in the regional art community who died in a climbing accident in 1990.

Linda Tesner, director of the Hoffman Gallery, said the exhibition of new and retrospective work will offer art enthusiasts a rare look at the progression of artistry in the Pacific Northwest.

"No art or artist exists in a vacuum; the way art history scholarship evolves is through the examination of work over time," Tesner said. "Examining regional trends over an extended period, or an artist's work over decades, is a way of ascertaining how the visual art intersects and overlaps other cultural signifiers—politics, literature, and popular culture."
