Six students of Simon Kogan exhibit work in the University Gallery

On Wednesday, October 15 the University Gallery opens “Students of Simon Kogan,” which includes works from artists Roger Cummings, Jennifer Lauder, Rose Nicholas, Sophie Stimson, Cathy Wiggins and Heather Grob. The work will be on display October 15 – November 12 with an opening reception on October 15 from 5pm-7pm.

In a warehouse in downtown Olympia, the exhibiting artists meet each Thursday with a small group of students to sculpt and paint from a model. Many students have been attending Simon Kogan’s Thursday afternoon classes for more than a decade. Students come from a broad range of backgrounds — from full-time artists to those with careers in other fields and variations in between. This exhibit includes pieces students have made in class and work students have created on their own.”

Simon Kogan is an internationally known sculptor, painter, printmaker, and teacher.

The University Gallery is located in Ingram Hall on the campus of Pacific Lutheran University. It is open Monday – Friday, 8am – 4pm, or by appointment. Admission is always free.
