Marylhurst faculty received "excellence and innovation" grants supporting work in business, interior design, art, sustainability and music therapy.
Art alum Andrea Schwarz-Feit will be featured in an exhibition at Butters Gallery through October 27, 2012.
The exhibition, titled Full Circle, features Andrea's works inspired by nature and spirituality.
The Butters Gallery website says:
Schwartz-Feit finds inspiration in the Columbia River Gorge where she resides. Combining wax with paint, she creates velvety-rich surfaces with extraordinarily complex color arrangements to reflect her sacred notations of her environment.
Andrea will give a talk at the gallery's Afternoon with the Artists on Saturday, October 20, from 1 to 3 pm. Butters Gallery is located at 520 NW Davis in Portland.
In addition, Andrea is launching a new website, made possible through a generous grant from the Regional Arts Culture Council.
