Portland University Buckley Center Gallery has an incredible exhibit of Sister Corita Kent's prints from three private collections. The works range from her more complex serigraphs in the 1950's up to her more simple and colorful prints of the 1980's. Her artwork chronicles the turbulence of the 1960's. Call the center for location and hours at 503-943-7792. This is a rare exhibit of her artwork.
Corita's US 1985 Love Postage Stamp is probably her most familiar piece of art. During the 1960's, I became aware of Corita's graphic artwork and messages. She created serigraphs or silk screens with bright colors and hand written quotes from authors who expressed her social consciousness. Her prints make one confront the issues of civil rights, war and peace, feminism and spirituality. We deal with these same issues today. This jubilee is a wonderful celebration of her art.
