Portland Area Art Events

Richard Diebenkorn - Prints
Lee Kelly - Six Decades

First Thursday Reception: June 6, 6 - 8 pm

On view in the back gallery, and shown concurrently with The Portland Art Museum’s exhibition, Richard Diebenkorn: Beginnings, are etchings and lithographs made by the artist in the 1960s and 1970s. Richard Diebenkorn was one of the most renowned West Coast painters of the 20th century and the selection of prints are being exhibited in Portland for the first time.

Lee Kelly is one of the most revered artists in the Pacific Northwest, best known for his monumental public sculptures throughout Oregon and the surrounding region. Elizabeth Leach Gallery is pleased to present Six Decades, an exhibition that highlights a special selection of artworks from 1958-2018 on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Kelly’s first show at Marylhurst College, Oregon.

The show highlights Kelly’s prolific career and a persistence of vision through form and material. The exhibition features early and recent works that represent recurring stylistic themes through paintings, works on paper, wall sculptures, freestanding sculptures, and intimately sized, editioned maquettes.
