Jo Hamilton

  August 28 – September 27, 2019

  Heuser Art Gallery

An exhibition featuring the work of artist Jo Hamilton will be on display in Heuser Art Gallery August 28 – September 27. Hamilton’s crocheted portraits are a fascinating combination of traditional technique with contemporary subject matter. A native of Scotland, Hamilton earned a degree in painting and drawing from the Glasgow School of Art, but after moving to Portland, she translated her artistic vision into the medium of crochet, which she had first learned as a child from her grandmother. She has made large-scale cityscapes as well as larger than life portraits, ranging from matriarchs to masked women, to giant male nudes, to commission subjects. Her work has been widely shown in the U.S. and Europe as well as in China and South Korea and belongs to museums and private collections in the US and worldwide.
