SSH Gallery Hosts Watercolorist Elizabeth Zimmerman

An exhibit of watercolors by artist and LBCC alumna Elizabeth Zimmerman, entitled “Western Gold,” will be shown November 9 through December 4 in the South Santiam Hall Gallery of Linn-Benton Community College, 6500 Pacific Blvd SW, Albany, OR.

A reception and gallery talk will be held Thursday, November 19 at 2 p.m. in the Gallery.

Zimmerman is a watercolorist in the western art tradition. Her work tells tales of characters, both human and equine, that she has met and interacted with over her time as a horse wrangler and camp counselor in Oregon and New Mexico.

Zimmerman's work has been featured in galleries and exhibits around Oregon, including the Rogue Gallery in Medford and the Hoffman Gallery in Portland. She won Best of Show in Watercolor at the St. Paul Rodeo Wild West Art Show for the last two years.

A 2009 graduate of Linn-Benton Community College’s Fine Art program, Zimmerman went on to complete a BFA in Drawing and Painting from Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland. Her portfolio of work is available to view online at www.westernrosestudios.com.

The South Santiam Hall Gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
