Some 240 people packed the Hult Center’s Studio this evening to hear artist Rick Bartow and his Portland gallerist, Charles Froelick, talk about Bartow’s work — which is the subject of not one but two shows in Eugene this month. Afterwards, the two headed over to the Schrager-Clarke Gallery, which is showing an exhibit of Bartow’s prints. The other exhibit — a career retrospective — opens April 18 at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.
