Art museum honors Siler and his career

The Museum of Art/ Washington State University will present the works of nationally renowned artist and WSU professor Patrick Siler between Oct. 25 and Dec. 19.

“Not only has Pat influenced countless WSU students as a teacher, but he is one of a handful of Palouse artists who have made a significant impact on the art of the Northwest,” said Chris Bruce, museum director. “He is our great pop expressionist — edgy, funny, innovative and incredibly prolific.”

The exhibition will consist of 24 gesso and acrylic paintings and also will include woodcut-framed paintings (wood frames with images carved into them). Half of these paintings will be exhibited publicly for the first time.

A WSU fine arts professor for 32 years, Siler has instructed students in many different subjects. He has taught ceramics and drawing and is coordinator of the drawing curriculum.
