This Is From That by Tom O'Day

The Alexander Gallery is pleased to announce "this is from that," a solo exhibition of work by artist Tom O'Day, which opens in the Alexander Gallery Jan. 6 and runs through Feb. 7, 2020. In this mixed media exhibition, O'Day explores the many processes an idea of artwork experiences from its initial inspiration to decay. These processes include material organization and chaos, installation, exhibition, storage and destruction. Tom O'Day is a Washington state artist and educator.

This exhibition is free. For further information about this show please contact Kate Simmons at 503-595-3032 or
