Oregon Women Suffragists Portrait Series

We love it when art & history intersect, which is why we were excited to feature the work of guest artist Darrion Bowen on our social media channels (@oregonwomenshistory on Facebook and Instagram) between April and June of this year.

Darrion’s portrait series highlighting Oregon Women Suffragists created another avenue to commemorate the Oregon 2020 suffrage centennial and explore the history behind it, during a time when in-person gatherings were not a possibility due to COVID-19.

Scroll down for Darrion’s portraits of Harriet “Hattie” Redmond, Esther Pohl Lovejoy, Abigail Scott Duniway, Lizzie K. Weeks, and Eva Wilson Bailey (who was actually an anti-suffragist).

A note of gratitude to @darrion_bowen for lending OWHC his time and talents and helping us stay engaged during this year of social distancing!
