An essay by Dr. Jennifer Sasser, gerontology program director, was published in the International Journal of Reminiscence and Lifelong Learning in January 2015.
The Art Gym's current artist, Heather Watkins, was interviewed on KBOO radio's Art Focus in March 2014.
Her new exhibition is called Recurrent Work and runs at The Art Gym at Marylhurst University until Wednesday, April 2.
Watkins talked about her process, her experimentation and her sense of what the viewer gets from looking at her work. Much of her work is created by soaking cotton cord in black ink and exploring the marks it makes on paper and acetate. There are also installations of the dried cord attached to the walls and other abstract drawings of silver and black pigment on paper.
The Art Gym is an integral part of Marylhurst's art program, which serves art and interior design majors, students preparing for graduate studies in art therapy, and interdisciplinary majors with a focus in art.
