Australian aboriginal art on display in Winslow gallery

Jeffrey Moose Gallery will host a holiday gift extravaganza featuring prints from several artists, including Oregon’s Lillian Pitt, Yup’ik carver and printmaker Jennifer Wood, and assorted aboriginal artists from Yeundemu in Central Australia this month.

The exhibit opens with a reception on First Friday, from 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 6.

Pitt is a Northwest Art legend whose work has been collected by the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., the cities of Portland and Seattle, and collectors nationwide and internationally.

She is known for her ceramic and cast glass sculpture, including masks and totemic figures, as well as for sterling silver jewelry and a huge variety of printmaking media.

Wood, of Indianola, is half Yup’ik, the Alaskan coastal group whose objects heavily influenced Picasso, Miro and many surrealists of the early 20th century.

She will show some off her 3-D work later next year as part of the 25th anniversary year of Jeffrey Moose Gallery, but will start by showing some prints and a couple of masks in this holiday exhibit, according to gallery officials.

Wood has exhibited at Stonington Gallery in Seattle and shown her work in events at the prestigious Heard Museum in Phoenix and the Autry Museum in California.

For more information about the exhibit, contact Jeffrey Moose at 360-598-4479 or jmoose@jeffreymoosegallery.com.
