OREGON ART BEAT remembers some of the artists featured on the show who have passed on. This special program along with every ART BEAT broadcast preserves a permanent record of Oregon and Northwest artists’ work and their unique voices. Tune in to the stations of Oregon Public Broadcasting Television on Thursday, November 26 at 8pm for a special tribute to the following artists:

Mary Catherine Lamb - We remember Mary Catherine Lamb. Her home is as interesting as her amazing modern quilts. In fact, an esteemed collector says she created some of the most-original and spirited work in the quilt medium today.

Leroy Setzoil - Called the “father of woodcarving,” Setzoil’s work can be found all around the state. We take a closer look at the delightful man behind the carvings and why he said he hoped to die holding a carving tool.

Charles Reynolds - This painter was going strong into his 90s. Many of his works from 50 years ago are just now being appreciated.

ART BEAT repeats Sundays at 2am and 6pm. Video of the stories featured on ART BEAT can be viewed online immediately following the broadcast at opb.org/programs/artbeat.
