Cara Tomlinson, visiting artist

Dec 1 2011

Cara Tomlinson lives and works in Portland OR where she serves as Chair of the Department of Art for  Lewis and Clark College.  She earned her undergraduate degree from Bennington College and her MFA from the University of Oregon.  Recently, her studio practice has expanded to include not just painting, but drawing, video installation, and sculpture - 'work she undertakes with a shared material and philosophical approach taken from painting.'  Ms. Tomlinson's visit is made possible through the Jim and Jane Dew Visiting Artist Fund.  Please join us December 1, 5:10 p.m. in Social Sciences rm. 356 for her lecture, followed by a reception in the Gallery of Visual Arts.  Ms. Tomlinson is hosted by School of Art professor Kevin Bell.  For more information contact
