Biography

Originally, from Boston, Lucinda Parker received a BA jointly from Reed College and the Pacific Northwest College of Art, in Portland, OR, and an MFA from Pratt Institute, New York.  Her work has been exhibited at numerous one-person shows throughout the Pacific Northwest and nationally. The Portland Art Museum honored her with a mid-career retrospective in 1995, and the Boise Art Museum presented a one-person exhibition of her work in 2002. She was also included in the Bonnie Bronson Fellows twenty-year retrospective at Lewis and Clark College, Portland. Parker’s work is part of collections throughout the Northwest. Major public collections include the Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University, the Portland Art Museum and the Seattle Art Museum. Public commissions can be found at the Oregon Convention Center, Portland City Hall, and a new federal courthouse in Bakersfield, California, among others. 

 

In 2013, she was among the first artists-in-residents selected by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation to work for a month in Captiva, Florida. The resulting painting is now in the collection of and on permanent public display at Reed College in Portland, purchased with the support of a grant from The Ford Family Foundation.
