Who is Maude Kerns?

Picture of Maude Kerns

An avante-garde artist. A regal victorian lady. A bold pioneer in the field of art education. A devoted Oregonian who travelled internationally. And a major donor to the Eugene Art Center, later named in her honor.

In the world of the creative artist, Maude Irvine Kerns experimented with a variety of styles, from realistic landscapes and portraits to abstract exploration of color and form. Her work was noted for its rich color and dynamic composition, at a time when such art was scarcely known on the West Coast.

In the world of art education, she was an innovative teacher. Mentor to a generation of art teachers at the University of Oregon, she used imaginative teaching techniques -- such as painting to music -- to convey the latest ideas in color theory and to introduce her students to new painting styles.

An exhibition catalog about Maude Kerns is available from the Center.
