Eunice Parsons at 100; is an exhibition celebrating her birthday at 12×16 gallery, 8235 SE 13th Ave. No. 5 through the end of August.
It’s a selection spanning 70 years with the work of her friends, contemporaries, and former students from Portland Museum Art School, where Parsons taught from 1957 to 1979.
“I’ve been a painter, a printmaker, and a tile-maker but when I discovered collage I said, ‘This is it; this medium is mine…’ I have enough paper for the next ten years.”, said Parsons ten years ago. Now at 100, she still has paper AND the creative energy to work for 10 more years.
The opening reception is Sunday, July 10 at 2 pm. First Friday reception is August 5, 5 – 9 pm. 503.432.3513. 12x16gallery.com
