Craft Biennial:
A Review of Northwest Art & Craft

As an educational institution committed to intellectual inquiry and
craftsmanship, the "Craft Biennial: A Review of Northwest Art and Craft"
exhibition provides a unique opportunity to examine the state of modern
craft in the Northwest. The "Craft Biennial" seeks to provoke a dialogue
between the viewer and object, as well as one between the objects
themselves.

The fifth in the juried biennial series devoted to handmade work in 
Oregon
and Washington, the exhibition runs August 2-September 27, 2007, with an
opening reception on Thursday, August 2 from 4:00-7:00pm at the 
College's
Hoffman Gallery at 8245 SW Barnes Road in Portland, OR. Anne Amie 
Vineyards,
our featured local vintner, will pour specially selected wines during 
the
opening event. Visit www.anneamie.com for more information on the 
Vineyard's
offerings.

Out of 320 submitted entries, 58 pieces were selected for the 
exhibition.
Selected works investigate and redefine the traditional form of the 
object,
and question the current status of "Art and Craft". Four individual 
Awards
of Merit were awarded to participating artists: Mary Wells, Portland, 
OR;
Scott Schuldt, Seattle, WA; Kate MacDowell, Portland, OR; and Amy 
Johnston,
Beaverton, OR.

Exhibition jurors include Sharon Marcus, a Portland, Oregon educator,
writer, and artist who works in textiles and mixed media; Linda Tesner,
Director and Curator of the Ronna and Eric Hoffman Gallery of 
Contemporary
Art at Lewis and Clark College and Chair of the Art Advisory committee 
for
Tri-Met in Portland, Oregon; and Margo Jacobsen Greeve, owner of Margo
Jacobsen/Art Dealer/Gallery in Portland, Oregon.

Background:
For one hundred years, Oregon College of Art & Craft has been dedicated 
to
