Organized by the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in partnership with the Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts (CSIA), the exhibition chronicles the history of Crow’s Shadow over the past 25 years as it has emerged as an important printmaking studio located on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation near Pendleton, Oregon.

The exhibition features 75 prints drawn from the Crow’s Shadow Print Archive and focuses on themes of landscape, abstraction, portraiture, word and images, and media and process. Included in the exhibition are works by 50 Native and non-Native artists who have worked at CSIA, including Rick Bartow, Pat Boas, Joe Feddersen, Edgar Heap of Birds, James Lavadour, Truman Lowe, Lillian Pitt, Wendy Red Star, Storm Tharp, and Marie Watt, among others.

Leslie Katter graduated with a Master's of Music in Voice Performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and currently studies with Jane Randolph in San Francisco, CA. After graduating, Leslie made her professional debut as The Queen of the Night in Mozart's Die Zauberflöte with Waffle Opera, and sang the role of Gretel (Hänsel und Gretel by Humperdinck) with Portland Summer Opera Workshop. She recently performed scenes as Giulietta from Bellini's I Capuleti e i Montecchi, Muffin from Bolcom’s A Wedding, Lucia from Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor, Countess Rosina Almaviva from Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro, Philine from Thomas' Mignon, and Konstanze from Mozart's Die Entführung aus dem Serail. Leslie sang the role of Venus (Orpheus in the Underworld by Offenbach) with SFCM in the spring of her first year of graduate studies, and premiered the final version of the role of Belisa in Conrad Susa's The Love of Don Perlimplin during her second year. She sang the roles of Adele (Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss II), Omnipotent (The Descent of Man by Jonathan Hicks), and the title role of Suor Angelica by Giacomo Puccini during her undergraduate study at Willamette University.

Ms. Katter received the Encouragement Award from the Washington District of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions following her Master’s degree, and during her undergraduate study, was a winner of the Willamette University Chamber Orchestra Aria Competition, and two-time winner of the Salem Chamber Orchestra Aria Competition.
