Rick Bartow touring retrospective exhibition, High Desert Museum, Bend, OR

Conceived and organized by the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at the University of Oregon, in cooperation with Froelick Gallery, this retrospective exhibition represents nearly forty years of work. Rick Bartow: Things You Know But Cannot Explain features over 100 sculptures, paintings, drawings and prints dating back to 1979 that were drawn from public and private collections, including the artist's studio.  The exhibition affirms his regional, national, and international impact and culminates in outstanding examples of Bartow's most recent work, which evidenced a new freedom of scale and expression.
