Join us for a community tour and evening of storytelling with Lillian and Jolene Pitt on Thursday, November 16th from 6-8pm. Guests will have a chance to view their artwork, hear their stories, and purchase a piece to take home.

Lillian Pitt is one of the most highly regarded Native American artists in the Pacific Northwest. Born on the Warm Springs Reservation in Oregon, she is a descendent of Wasco, Yakama, and Warm Springs people. Primarily a sculptor and mixed media artist, Lillian’s lifetime of works include artistic expressions in clay, bronze, wearable art, prints, and most recently, glass.

Jolene A. Pitt (Lillian’s niece) works primarily with beads and also weaves. She followed her traditional arts as a child in Warm Springs, Oregon and continues the traditions of her grandmother. She is a Clatsop, Nehalem, Tillamook descendent on her paternal side and Warm Springs, Yakama, Wasco on her maternal side.

*Lillian and Jolene will have artwork and jewelry on display and available to purchase. Only cash or check will be accepted for any purchases made.
