Kenneth O’Connell, reinvents himself in many art forms

For the last 20 years people associated Ken with Sketchbooks and 
Workshops along the Oregon Coast and in Italy. But he was also a 
painter, photographer, printmaker, animator, potter, and pastel and 
charcoal artist. He worked and taught all these art forms and was Head 
of the University of Oregon’s Fine and Applied Art Department for 12 

Ken’s sketchbooks are amazing and he’s filled over 94, but the focus of 
the current exhibition at the Karin Clarke Gallery features his other 
abilities to explore and give ideas form in many media. There are 
watercolors done in Long Beach while in the US Navy; Brush ink drawings 
done while teaching at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, 
Washington; brown sepia figure drawings; black and white photos of a 
pottery in Japan, farmland near Salem, and an old ranch in Eastern 
Oregon; woodcut, silkscreen prints and a tiny beautiful brown ink 
drawing of the Ponte Vecchio Bridge in Florence, Italy; plus many other 
interesting works to discover.

Most people only know a part of Ken’s work as an artist and viewing this 
exhibition will show you a creative mind in many phases of development.
