Joanne Kollman Featured in Central Catholic Magazine

Art alum Joanne Kollman and her paintings were featured in the Spring 2013 issue of Central Catholic magazine.

An excerpt of the article follows:

Last summer, artist Joanne Radmilovich Kollman brought in a wonderful painting of someone we hold dear in our community. Titled Fr. Murphy's Reply, the oil-on-canvas painting features Msgr. Murphy caught in a moment of playful conversation. Perhaps the most remarkable element of the painting is the attention paid to Msgr. Murphy's trademark smirk.

Joanne's Northwest Neighbors: Who Are We? series, for which she has received a Regional Arts and Culture Council grant, features local figures portrayed in casual, unguarded moments.

After working as a commercial artist for most of her career, Joanne returned to oil painting and made a commitment to finish her college education. In 2012, Joanne graduated with honors from Marylhurst University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Fr. Murphy's Reply was one of the pieces that she included in her thesis exhibition, and the painting is due to be shown later this year as part of the Northwest Neighbors: Who Are We? series.

Joanne teaches at her studio in Southeast Portland, as well as at local schools and libraries. She has been invited to present a special program for Multnomah County Library's centennial anniversary on June 29, 2013.
