Cycling through themes inspired by nature, Bill Colby has been creating art for six decades. His work is displayed in schools, museums, galleries and businesses throughout the Northwest. Permanent collections of Colby’s work are housed in the Library of Congress, the Tacoma Art Museum, the Seattle Art Museum, the Henry Gallery at the University of Washington, and many other locations. As a University of Puget Sound art professor from 1956-89, Colby has also made significant contributions to local art education.
Colby’s “Water and Rocks: A Journey” show will run June 25-August 14 in The Gallery at TCC. The Gallery is open Monday-Thursday from noon to 5 pm. A reception will be held July 17 (4-6 pm).
“Water and Rocks” includes woodcut prints Colby created in 2013-14.
“The joy of nature is within all of us and in my art work,” said Colby in his artist’s statement. “’Water and Rocks’ has been an evolving theme from 1956 to the present.”
The Gallery is located in Building 4 at the north end of TCC’s Tacoma campus. Access The Gallery from the college’s main 12th Street entrance. Visitor parking is available in Lot G.
