Harry Widman: Image, Myth, and Modernism

January 31 – March 29, 2009

Harry Widman is a Portland painter and professor emeritus from the Pacific Northwest College of Art. The exhibition surveys Widman’s career over a 60-year period in works that explore the possibility of a “meaningful shape” in abstract painting, the role that myth can play in contemporary expression, and the interplay between the physical strength of the athlete and the intellectual delicacy of the poet or philosopher in expressionist modern art.
