​Please join us for a free curator talk with MoNA Northwest Legacy Projects Curator, Kathleen Moles, and celebration of the life of Clayton James and Barbara Straker James.
 
This Summer, MoNA celebrates the life and work of Clayton James (1918 - 2016), with an exhibition of art and photographs from the permanent collection and selections from archives recently donated to the museum. Clayton’s sculptural works in clay, bronze and wood and his abstract and landscape paintings will be featured, along with notes, letters, exhibition announcements and reviews documenting his 60-plus-year artistic career. An essential part of the exhibition also involves Barbara Straker James (1918 - 2007) -- artist, writer, Clayton’s wife, MoNA’s first curator and the archivist of their lives as individuals and together.
