Recurrent Work / Book

Images of Heather Watkins – Recurrent Work, recently published in conjunction with my one-person exhibition at The Art Gym at Marylhurst University. The book features two exquisite texts – a spatialized poem, and an essay – by Stephanie Snyder, Director and Curator of the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery, Reed College, Portland, Oregon. The book's design, beautifully executed by Adam McIsaac / Sibley House, includes over one hundred work examples, with emphasis on ink- and fiber-based works created over the past five years.

The book is available for purchase ($20) through The Art Gym, by emailing bshell@marylhurst.edu. A lo-res downloadable pdf of the book is available here.

This publication was made possible through the help and generosity of Jane Beebe of PDX Contemporary Art in Portland, Oregon; the Harold & Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation and Linda Hutchins and John Montague, contributors to The Art Gym Publication Fund; and collectors and art advocates Dorothy Lemelson, Sarah and Andrew Meigs, Mary Caulkins, Thomas Cody, Anne and James Crumpacker, Mary and Spencer Dick, JoAnn Gonzales Hickey, Deneen King, Carol Smith-Larson, David Lessoff, Sarah Dougher and Nathan Overmeyer, Travers Hill Polak, the Shipley Family, Jonathan Snyder, Andrea and Jon Walker, Nell Warren and Greg Misarti, and anonymous donors.
