Tamarind Summer Season at Los Poblanos Artist Talk


This summer we are honored to present the second annual collaboration between Los Poblanos and the Tamarind Institute. This special exhibit in the La Quinta Gallery features fine art lithography from the Tamarind collection including works by Paula Wilson, Fritz Scholder, Ellen Lesperance, Rose B. Simpson and many others. There are a variety of opportunities to view the exhibit and learn more about Tamarind’s essential role in the world of lithography. 

Monday, July 24th, 5:30pm

Los Poblanos is proud to partner with the Tamarind Institute again this summer for an exhibit in the La Quinta Gallery showcasing a selection of fine art prints from the institute’s collections over the past 60 years. This year’s artist talk will feature a conversation between the Tamarind Institute's Master Printer, Valpuri Remling, and Portland-based painter, Ellen Lesperance. The discussion will touch on Tamarind’s Frederick Hammersely Residency program of which Lesperance is a current participant. Diana Gaston, Director of the Tamarind Institute since 2016, will be facilitating. Drinks are available for purchase from the Library Bar. 

Tickets for this event are $20.

About Ellen Lesperance: Ellen Lesperance lives and works in Portland, OR. She has exhibited widely in the United States and internationally. She employs the visual language of knitting patterns in her work to pay homage to female activism. Inspired by actions of protest that have shaped the twentieth century such as the Greenham Common Peace camp, the artist sources archival images of protesters’ hand-knitted garments which she first translates into American Symbolcraft, before turning them into meticulous gouache paintings on paper.
