Children show their art in Beaverton
Local children have their artwork displayed at Beaverton City Hall in a professional art show through the guidance of an All Saints parishioner and artist.
When artist and art instructor Joanne Radmilovich Kollman was setting up an opportunity to display her own work, a series of oil-on-canvas paintings called “Northwest Neighbors: Who Are We?” she inquired about the possibility of hanging some of her students’ art as well.
Eleven of Kollman’s paintings are exhibited in the City Hall lobby through Aug. 30. People who visit the third floor of City Hall can also view art created by All Saints students and children who live at Catholic Charities’ housing at Kateri Park, as well as Groner Elementary School students from Hillsboro.
Kollman works with students, teaching art workshops and residencies. Her goal is to bring a glimpse of her studio practice into the classroom.
Kollman drove a group of Kateri Park children on a field trip to Beaverton so they could see their art on display. At the exhibit, Kateri Park’s Samikchhya Pokhrel discovered that her pizza box painting sold for $15.
Kollman’s series was funded in part by a Regional Arts and Culture Council grant. Additional paintings from the series can be seen at Portland’s Northeast Community Center through Aug. 31. Future shows include the North Portland Library in November and the West Linn Library in December, which will include a portrait of Msgr. Tim Murphy.
