PENDLETON -- An exhibit of miniature works by Jennifer Ishimatsu opens today at the Pendleton Center for the Arts, 214 N. Main, with a reception for the artist from 5:30 - 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Ishimatsu is the Director of the E. L. Cord Museum School at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, Nevada.
Her work, ranging in size from 3-inch by 3-inch to 8-inch by 10-inch canvases, describes places seen from the perspective of riding in a car or views obstructed through windows, doorways or other infrastructure. Ishimatsu's artwork has been included in shows in Nevada, California, New York City and Italy.
The exhibit runs through April 9. Also on view in the gallery will be sculpture by Walla Walla artist Dawn Forbes. A concurrent exhibit of paintings by Evan Hilliard will be on display in the Lorenzen Board Room Gallery. Admission to both exhibits is free and open to the general public. More information can be found on the Arts Center's Website, www.pendletonarts.org or by calling (541) 278-9201.
