The Museum of Contemporary Craft presents Object Focus: The Book
, co-curated by Namita Gupta Wiggers and Reed College's Geraldine Ondrizek in collaboration with OCAC's Barbara Tetenbaum. "The artist's book is an object that extends work beyond the boundaries of a gallery setting. Through selections from the significant 20th century modern and contemporary artists' books in Reed College's Special Collections, this exhibition explores the book as an object which defies the boundaries between art, craft and design, and moves along a spectrum from a recognizable to a deconstructed form."

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University presents Form and Color

"Celentano is a highly regarded Seattle painter and professor emeritus from the University of Washington who explores issues of color, shape, form and structure in abstract, geometric works...Back in New York, Celentano continued to paint in an abstract expressionist style but gradually embraced the tenets of Op art, a movement that emerged in the 1960s and that makes use of optical illusions." Educators:
There will be a workshop on November 30 for teachers who want to bring their students to learn about Celentano. Read the news release
