Series I:  Helen Plummer Gatch, 1882-1990,   (bulk 1882-1926) Return to Top

Helen Plummer was born in Alton, Illinois in 1861. Her father and her two sisters moved to Portland, Oregon in 1864. In 1885 she married Claude Gatch and the couple moved to Salem, where Claude was employed as a banker. Along with Salem resident Myra Albert Wiggins, Gatch was an important figure in pictorial photography. She was featured in several national publications and exhibitions over the course of her career. Gatch continued to volunteer at exhibitions after a 1912 move to Berkeley, California but did not pursue photography in the same way again.

Series III:  Charles Heaney, 1902-2006,   (bulk 1916-2004) Return to Top

Charles Edward Heaney (1897-1981) was born in 1897 to John and Elizabeth Heaney of Oconto Falls, Wisconsin--he was the youngest of eight children. Heaney's father died when he was six years old. In 1913, at the age of 15, Charles, moved west to Portland, Oregon with his mother and his sister. On arriving in Portland Heaney began operating box manufacturing machines for the F.C. Settler Company. Heaney began an apprenticeship with the Brandenburg Engraving Company as an engraver at the age of 18--developing skill that would later be shown in his etching. During this time he was encouraged by his employer, George O. Brandenburg, to attend courses at the Museum Art School (now the Pacific Northwest College of Art). Heaney began his studies in 1917 and continued them well into the 1920s. It was in 1929 that Heaney first gained notoriety as an artist during the First Annual Exhibition of Northwest Print Makers.

Heaney used his training as an artist working for the Oregon State Motor Association. For three years, beginning in 1929, it was his job to create and install directional road signs along Oregon highways. It was during these lengthy trips into the wilds of Eastern Oregon that Heaney would gather inspiration for many of his later paintings. His experiences with the Oregon State Motor Association translated into a position with the Works Progress Administration. Between 1937 and 1939 Heaney produced many paintings and prints for the WPA including,"The Mountain," a large painting created as a furnishing for Timberline Lodge.

Throughout his prolific 60 year career Heaney drew inspiration from the variety of experiences surrounding him including both natural and man-made environments. Though initially gaining recognition as a printmaker Heaney has established himself as one of the Northwest's premier painters by the 1950s.

Charles Heaney was diagnosed with cancer in 1980. He died in August, 1981.

Roger Hull's files on Charles Heaney also include research material donated by Marge Riley. To preserve this distinction materials on Heaney have been separated into two subgroups: Sub-Series A: Roger Hull Research Files and Sub-Series B: Marge Riley Research Files.

Series IV:  Manuel Izquierdo, 1931-2013Return to Top

Manuel Izquierdo was born September 26, 1925 north of Madrid, Spain. He was the eldest of three siblings. Izquierdo was 10 years old when the Spanish Civil War began in 1936. Due to the absence of both of his parents, Izquierdo, his brother José, and his sister Lucia were cared for by a children's refuge. In 1939, Izquierdo and his siblings were moved to Marseille, France in order to escape lingering tensions between Spanish Republicans and Pro-Franco groups.

In 1941 the Nazi occupation had begun to reach as far as the south of France. This prompted aid groups to arrange for the emigration of threatened children. In May of 1942, the three Izquierdo children set sail for New York City. Though it took one year for the children to find permanent residence, they were eventually placed with a family in Portland, Oregon. The Izquierdo and his two siblings made their cross country trip by train in 1943.

Manuel graduated high school in 1947 and enrolled that fall in the Museum Art School (Pacific Northwest College of Art). While at the Museum Art School Izquierdo focused on sculpture and printmaking. By 1951, he had finished his certificate program, and began teaching at the Museum Art School, attaining full time status by 1953. Izquierdo held his position at the Museum School for the next 46 years before retiring in 1997.

Over the course of his career Izquierdo came to be regarded as a distinguished sculptor, known for his welded sculptures. He died in 2009 at the age of 84.

Series VI:  Mark Sponenburgh, 1940-2006Return to Top

Mark Sponenburgh was born in Cadillac, Michigan on June 15, 1916. After undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan in 1939, Sponenburgh was granted a scholarship at Cranbrook Academy to study sculpture. In early 1942, Sponenburgh volunteered for the U.S. Army and was assigned to Combat Intelligence Training; he later transferred to the Corps of Engineers.

Following the German surrender in 1945, Sponenburg was assigned to the art retrieval unit. He was tasked with recovering materials from the salt mine where the Nazis had hidden confiscated European art. In the spring of 1946, Sponenburgh joined the faculty of Architecture and Allied Arts at the University of Oregon to teach sculpture. In 1957, he assumed the role of Mayo Professor of Fine Art and Principle of the National College of Art in Lahore.

When he returned to Oregon in 1961, Sponenburgh was hired to help establish an art history program at Oregon State University. Sponenburgh held this position until 1983. In his later years Sponenburgh retired to Seal Rock--near Newport, Oregon. He died at the age of 96 in 2012.

Series VIII:  Jan Zach, 1929-2003Return to Top

Jan Zach was born in 1914 in the town of Slaný, Northwest of Prague. At the age of 15 he left home for Prague and soon began apprenticeships with several well known painters. Despite his skill in painting Zach was drawn toward civic sculpture and was greatly impressed by the work of Czech native Zdeněk Pešánek.

Zach was in New York City, decorating the Czech Pavilion for the 1939 World's Fair, when Nazi's invaded Czechoslovakia. He never returned to his home country. After briefly residing in New York City, Zach moved to Brazil where his drawings and paintings were exhibited at the National Museum of Fine Arts and the Institute of Brazilian Architects. In 1947 he married Canadian Judith Monk. Four years later the Zachs moved to her hometown of Victoria, British Columbia. Zach established an art school in Victoria and helped introduce contemporary art to the city's conservative scene.

In 1958 Zach was hired to teach sculpture at the University of Oregon in Eugene where he would teach for the next 21 years. Zach retired from the University of Oregon in 1979 at the age of 65.

At the time of his death, in 1986, Zach was working on several projects some of which were completed after his death by close friends.

Series IX:  Henk Pander, 1948-2013Return to Top

Henk Pander was born, in 1937 in The Netherlands 12 miles west of Amsterdam in the city of Haarlem, the eldest of ten children born to Jacob (Jaap) and Hendrica Pander. Jaap Pander was a well received artist known primarily for his biblical illustrations. From a young age Pander would join his father on drawing and watercolor painting expeditions in the area surrounding Haarlem. This practice, and the emphasis of its importance, meant that by the time Pander entered post-secondary art school in 1956 he had a firmly established skill-set in drawing and painting.

In 1963 Pander met Marcia Lynch, a student from the Museum Art School (now the Pacific Northwest College of Art) while she was traveling in Europe. The two were married in Amsterdam and had their first child in 1964. Later that year having secured a temporary position with the Museum Art School the Panders moved to Portland, Oregon. Pander would teach as a member of the art school staff for only two years, through the spring of 1967. Other than this brief experience in academia Pander has supported himself entirely through the sale of his artworks. In the summer of 1967 Pander's second child was born in Holland. The family of four stayed for a time in Amsterdam, returning to the United States during the summer of 1968. Shortly after their return to Portland Pander and Lynch divorced.

In 1969, a solo show at Portland State University brought Pander a wealth of criticism. His artwork, which heavily drew upon themes of sexuality, death, and violence was dismissed as pornographic and depraved. It was around this time that Pander began working in live theater set design, an artistic outlet that would remain open from the early 1970s until the early 1990s.

Among his many successes Pander can count several high-profile portrait commissions including a posthumous portrait of C.S. Price, portraits of Governors Tom McCall and John Kitzhaber and Storefront Theater director Ric Young. Pander currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
