Jennifer Norman of Lincoln City, Ore., will exhibit her mixed media works and assemblages as the featured artist at Valley Art Center in Clarkston, opening with a reception from 4-7 p.m. Sept. 6.

Refreshments and light appetizers will be served.

Norman writes in an artist statement, “Preserving tradition and history is important in any culture and for me that means the Native American culture. Each one of my pieces has a connection with nature, whether it be in the materials used or a depiction of an animal that was significant to a specific region.”

The show will continue through Sept. 28 at the center, 842 Sixth St. Regular hours for the exhibit are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
