The Schneider Museum of Art will be extending its part of Portland2016: A Biennial of Contemporary Art until Saturday, October 15. This summer, the Museum was one of 25 venues across the state participating in this exhibition organized by Disjecta Contemporary Art Center and artist-curator Michelle Grabner. The Portland Mercury proclaimed Portland2016: A Biennial of Contemporary Art as “Oregon’s Biggest Art Show Ever.” At the Schneider Museum of Art venue, the exhibition features five diverse, contemporary artists working in Oregon. The artists exhibited in this show – Mike Bray, David Eckard, Giles Lyon, Brenna Murphy, and Storm Tharp – work in a variety of mediums and have created rich work that will engage visitors.
Later in October, the Schneider Museum of Art will present Art on Paper – 10 Women Artists from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation, featuring the works of ten internationally renowned female artists. This exhibition will show prints by Polly Apfelbaum, Jennifer Bartlett, Louise Bourgeois, Ann Hamilton, Louise Nevelson, Judy Pfaff, Kiki Smith, Pat Steir, Sarah Sze, and Barbara Takenaga.
