Coast Salish Wool Weavings on exhibit at LCC beginning November 6

Susan Pavel weaving a wallhangingEUGENE, Ore.— The Lane Community College Art Galleries are pleased to present the work of Dr. Susan Pavel and her students in an exhibition titled “The Weavings of Nature: Coast Salish Wool Weavings” opening November 6. An artist talk with reception to follow will be held Wednesday, November 6, from 4-5:30 p.m. in the Roger Hall Gallery, building 11, main campus, 4000 E. 30th Ave., Eugene.

Dr. Susan Pavel—sa’hLa mitsa—weaves for ceremonial reasons, both when the spirit moves her and when an occasion arises, such as a wedding, birth, death or life passage. She creates educational exhibits in community spaces because she believes strongly in instructing the public. She weaves because she was entrusted with the sacred obligation to pass on the teachings to the next generations, resulting in classes and presentations. And she exhibits her weavings as an art form to share the deeply woven beauty that is the Coast Salish.  The exhibit will be shown in the Roger Hall Gallery from November 6 to December 6.

The LCC Roger Hall Gallery is located in building 11 on main campus, 4000 E. 30th Ave., Eugene. The galleries are open Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. For more information contact Ellen Osterkamp at or 541-463-3432.

For accommodations to attend these events, contact the LCC Center for Accessible Resources at 541-463-5150 (voice), 711 (relay), or email
