Portland, OR-based artist, Paulette Kaskinen creates intricate charcoal drawings of animals and wildlife closely connected to Northwest agriculture. In her highly anticipated Strand Gallery solo exhibition, Woolly, Kaskinen worked closely with fiber producers in Oregon, Washington, Colorado and Missouri. Kaskinen writes:
"The animals whose portraits you will see have all produced high quality fiber due to thoughtful breeding, appropriate handling, and generally great care at their respective farms. The fiber is fascinating in its variations of texture, sheen, color, and pattern, but the peculiarities of anatomy and character of the individuals who produced it are even more compelling to me."
Paulette Kaskinen received the 2021 Carey L & Glen S Strome Memorial Art About Agriculture Purchase Award for the charcoal drawing on paper, March 13th, 7:13pm.
