CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: TEACHERS AS ARTISTS

Have you heard the saying “the cobbler’s children are often the ones with no shoes?” In many ways, art teachers exemplify this adage, working long and hard to bring out the best in their students, often at the expense of their own creative pursuits.

Working in partnership with Oregon Art Education Association and Washington Art Education Association, we invite art teachers (who are current members of either organization) to participate in a juried exhibition in our MJ Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center Gallery. Washington teachers will be featured March 15 to April 26, 2017, and Oregon teachers from October 6 to November 15, 2017.

Walking in Two Worlds: Prints by Nixya’awii Students

Nixya’awiil Community School is a charter high school located on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation in Pendleton, Oregon.  A collaborative print project, now in its third year, has enabled a select group of Nixya’awiil students to work in the professional print studio at Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts, an organization using art as a transformative tool within the Native American community. Through this opportunity, students work with Tamarind Master Printer Frank Janzen, learning all aspects of printmaking, publishing and exhibiting their work. The nuanced, sophisticated and detailed lithograph prints they have created are featured in this exhibition.
