Deb Stoner Exhibit

Deb Stoner’s show, A Closer Look, comes to Pushdot Studio Friday, April 7-Friday, May 26 with a 6-8 pm reception on opening night. People may be familiar with Stoner’s work through its display as part of the permanent collection at the Portland International Airport, which includes 12 large scale photographs from her “A Year in the Willamette Valley” series. Her exceptional fine art photography process involves growing and collecting indigenous plants, flora and insect specimens.

Stoner came to Portland in 1989 to take an artist-in-residency position at the Oregon School of Arts and Crafts, where she taught jewelry and metalsmithing classes. She is known for creating innovative approaches to making handmade eyewear through material and design research. Since then she has taught workshops at craft-based schools and universities, and lectured widely at symposia and conferences. Her deep exploration of the design and making of eyewear has brought praise from the fields of design, fashion and art, and continues to inspire.

Soak in Stoner’s work at Pushdot Studio, 2505 SE 11th Ave., Suite 104, Monday-Friday 8:30 am-5 pm. Admission is free.
