Cawein Gallery hosts Ashland artist
Pacific University's Kathryn Cawein Gallery has an upcoming exhibit featuring Ashland artist Betty LaDuke.
LaDuke is a regionaly celebrated artist whose work is topical to today's political climate. Her intricately carved and painted wood panels document the stories of Latino farm workers in the Pacific Northwest.
This exhibit comes at a time when issues of immigration are at the forefront of American politics. LaDuke's show, "Bountiful Harvest: From Land to Table" provides a space to contemplate race, immigration and social justice in America today.
The public is invited to attend an opening lecture by the artist, a screening of an award-winning short documentary on the LaDuke, and book signing and community social with free tacos from Don Pancho's taco truck.
At 2:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 11, LaDuke will give a talk, followed by a short film screening at 2:30 p.m., at Marsh Hall, Taylor Auditorium 216, on Pacific's Forest Grove campus.
From 3:30 to 5 p.m., view the exhibit in the Cawein Gallery and enjoy free tacos.
LaDuke's exhibit will be on display through Nov. 21.
