In honor of Women's History Month, a collection of artist books by 11 female artist-storytellers will be on display in the Kathrin Cawein Gallery of Art at Pacific University in Forest Grove, beginning Tuesday, March 4 and continuing through Friday, March 21.

Artists who will share their own stories through their handmade artist books are ShuJu Wang, Susan Collard, Laurie Weiss, Helen Hiebert, Diane Jacobs, Nancy Pobanz, Laura Russell, Andie Trams, Trisha Hassler, Claire Carpenter and Patty Grass.

Gallery hours are 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. 

The artists will discuss their work at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, March 5. A reception will follow and conclude at 1 p.m.

Admission to both the exhibit and reception are free.

Located in the heart of Pacific University, the Kathrin Cawein Gallery of Art is integrated into the southeast corner of Harvey W. Scott Hall (2125 College Way). 

The gallery is named in recognition of the late Kathrin Cawein of New York, who, beyond being an accomplished printmaker and contributor to Pacific University, established an endowed scholarship for students of the arts at Pacific.

The fund was established through the sale of her intaglio etchings and engravings during exhibits at Pacific, as well as from the proceeds of her estate after death in 1996. 

The gallery’s north-southdirectional orientation, track lighting, and textural wall surfacing contrasted with brick walls provide a wonderful space in which to view art. 

Outside window views bring natural light and a sense of warmth from the campus environment into the gallery. Adequate storage and an exterior south entrance facing the center of campushave made the gallery known as one of the best university galleries in the state of Oregon. 

Exhibits change throughout the academic year and are provided at no cost to the public through the university’s Art Department

Receptions with exhibiting artists at the openings of their showings provide an opportunity for community enrichment and cultural growth.

At times, artist talks are alsoscheduled to coincide with the exhibit schedule, to give the artist a chance to share his or her creative inspirations and motivations related to the works on display.
