MARVIN OLIVER:

On Paper

        

"Sea & Sky" Limited Edition Serigraph.

 

 

Opening Reception,

First Thursday, May 1st, 6-8pm

 

We are honored to present an exhibition of prints by renowned Quinault/Isleta Pueblo artist and educator Marvin Oliver. Marvin Oliver has built a remarkable career in the Northwest and Alaska over the past 40 years. A working artist, Oliver is also a professor at the University of Washington and University of Alaska Ketchikan, and adjunct curator of contemporary art at the Burke Museum of Natural History at the UW.

  

       

 

Oliver has produced some of the most iconic prints in the Pacific Northwest Coast vernacular. His prints, often created to gift to each year's graduating seniors in the UW's American Indian Studies Department, have established Oliver as one of the region's foremost printmakers.

Using techniques such as embossing and foiling, his prints have a movement, dynamism and range of media that make them instant classics. They grace the collections of many museums, and are on view onboard many of Washington's ferries.

Oliver, who is Quinault and Isleta Pueblo, attended high school in San Franciso in the 1960s. His art is a magnificent blend of Pacific Northwest Coast mythology and themes, Southwestern Pueblo pottery, and a Haight Ashbury zeal for color.

The exhibition will feature a rare, hard-to-find serigraphs from the artist's personal archive available to purchase, as well as brand new works from 2013 and 2014.
