Mel Katz

Museum of Northwest Art, La Conner, WA - To Jan 7

by Matthew Kangas

A companion show to his recent Hallie Ford Museum of Art retrospective in Salem, OR, this survey, Choices, chronicles the Brooklyn-born artist’s long sojourn in Portland first as a painter and then as a noted modernist sculptor with myriad public art commissions and museum acquisitions. Colorful, organic and amoebic, Katz’s sculptures echo nature but improve on its irregular vegetal appurtenances.
