Myra Wiggins: Still Lifes

Myra Wiggins (1869-1956) was a nationally recognized Salem photographer with ties to Alfred Stieglitz and the Photo Secession. In addition to her photography, which encompassed landscapes, genre scenes, and portraits, Wiggins was an accomplished still life painter.

A small exhibition of Wiggins' still lifes will open on May 29 and continue through Aug. 14 in the Study Gallery at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University. Organized by Professor Roger Hull, the exhibition will feature a range of still lifes executed over several decades and will be supplemented by a number of props from the artist's studio.

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is located at 700 State Street (corner of State and Cottage Streets) in downtown Salem near the campus of Willamette University. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The galleries are closed on Sunday and Monday. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for seniors and students. Children under 12 are admitted free and Tuesday is an admission-free day.
