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.
Some media in Bradley University's current print, video and online materials was acquired before the COVID-19 pandemic. Media acquired after the pandemic began was done so in compliance with Bradley's COVID-19 safety protocols at the time. The ongoing safety of our faculty, staff and students is of the utmost concern during these unprecedented times.
