The exhibition begins with the story Oregon’s pioneers of modernism and moves through the present day. On view are works created in the 1930s by artists such as C.S. Price, Charles Heaney, Amanda Synder and Constance Fowler, Willamette Valley and Central Coast artists Carl Hall, Nelson Sandgren and Ruth Dennis Grover, along with well-known mid-century Oregon modernists such as Michele Russo, George Johanson, Louis Bunce, Lucinda Parker, Lee Kelly and Manuel Izquierdo. The gallery also includes a rotating selection of works by contemporary artists from Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana.
This gallery is named for Carl Hall (1922-1996), who taught at Willamette University for nearly 40 years and painted a luminous record of his response to the region.
