March General Meeting: Lillian Pitt: A Retrospective of her Art

  • Multnomah Arts Center Auditorium 7688 Southwest Capitol Highway Portland, OR, 97219 United States (map)

About the program

Lillian Pitt is one of the most highly regarded Native American artists in the Pacific Northwest.  Primarily a sculptor and mixed media artist, her lifetime of works includes artistic expressions in clay, bronze, wearable art, prints, and most recently, glass.  Her work draws on more than 12,000 years of Native American history and tradition of the Columbia River region, and is aimed at giving voice to her people. 

The meeting will open at 6:30 p.m. with library and social time.  We will call to order at 7:00 p.m. for Guild announcements, member sharing, and the monthly program.
