Photography Brown Bag Talk: Grace Weston

May 15, 2019 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Every third Wednesday of the month at noon, photography enthusiasts gather at the Museum to hear talks by regional photographers, gallerists, historians, curators, and collectors.

Join Grace Weston for a presentation of her work from the last several years – from her photography of detailed staged miniature scenes to her first large-scale multi-media installation debuted at Nine Gallery. She will address changes to her work prompted by her relocation to Seattle and her eventual return to Portland, and as always, she will share a peek at the behind-the-scenes process. There will be time for questions.

About Grace Weston

Based in Portland, Oregon, Grace has spent the last twenty-plus years photographing small worlds.  Although never depicting actual people in her photographs, the psychological landscape, our search for meaning, and the contradictions of human existence are undeniably at the center of her work.

Grace’s artwork has been recognized internationally with numerous exhibitions, publications, public acquisitions, and awards. She has also created work in her unique style for the editorial market.

Free to the public.
