2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

In conjunction with the exhibition Tom Prochaska and Christy Wyckoff: In the Footsteps of Charles Heaney the Hallie Ford Museum of Art is pleased to present an conversation with Oregon artists Tom Prochaska and Christy Wyckoff. 

In September of 2014 Prochaska and Wyckoff set out to follow in the footsteps of artist Charles Heaney (1897-1981), who was a significant mid-20th century Oregon artist known for his paintings and prints inspired by the landscape and settlements of Central, Eastern, and Southern Oregon as well as Nevada.

Prochaska and Wyckoff will share more about their recent road trip where they traveled, camped and made their own art at various places identified in Heaney’s works. 

“Although Heaney was on our minds as we worked at sites connected to him,” Wyckoff explains, “we primarily responded in our individual ways to the landscape in front of us rather than making ‘art about art.’”
