10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Sherrie Wolf is a Portland painter and printmaker whose work juxtaposes traditional still life subjects (bowls of fruit, floral arrangements) with Old Master themes. Organized by Director John Olbrantz, the exhibition features paintings, prints, and other works on paper by the artist drawn from private collections throughout the region. Wolf's work will also be featured in the upcoming Stilleven: Contemporary Still Life exhibition opening Sept. 12 and continuing through Dec. 20 at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art. The exhibition explores the work of 27 artists and their diverse approaches to still life through a variety of mediums including paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, glass and mixed media.
