Found and Formed: Solo Exhibition by Brenda Mallory

January 6 - 29

Gallery talk with the artist: Wednesday, January 22, 4:30pm. Corvallis Arts Walk Thursday, January 16, 4-7pm. Both events are free and open to the public. 



Brenda Mallory’s work addresses ideas of interference and disruption in long-established systems of nature and human culture. The Portland-based artist works in mixed media sculpture, using a variety of materials, including cloth, fiber, beeswax and found objects. She creates multiple forms joined with crude hardware that imply tenuous connections or repairs.


Mallory grew up in Oklahoma and is a member of the Cherokee Nation. She holds a bachelor’s degree in linguistics and English from UCLA and a bachelor’s in fine arts from Pacific Northwest College of Art. She has received grants from the Oregon Arts Commission, Ford Family Foundation and the Regional Arts & Culture Council. She is a recipient the Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship, the Native Arts and Culture Foundation Fellowship in Visual Art and the Ucross Native Fellowship.
