Chronicle: Selections from the City of Lake Oswego’s Permanent Collection

The Arts Council of Lake Oswego (ACLO) is pleased to present Chronicle: Selections from the City of Lake Oswego’s Permanent Collection. For over two decades, the annual Chronicle exhibition has documented life in Lake Oswego utilizing a myriad of media. From pastel and acrylic to photography and linoleum block printing, artists both emerging and established have brought their unique interpretations of the visual impact of Lake Oswego.

Work included in this year’s Chronicle represent the best of the best—those works selected to be purchased for the City of Lake Oswego’s visual art collection. This collection greets you in public buildings around the City—including City Hall, the Adult Community Center, and the Library—and provides a glimpse into how Lake Oswego is interpreted through the eyes of an artist.

Selections includes work from local and regional artists including Theresa Andreas-O’Leary, Marla Baggetta, Phil Bard, Jonnel Covault, Robert Dozono, Greg Gabel, Amanda Houston, Scott Loy, Deborah Marble, Martha Pfanschmidt, Michael Southern, Helen Trayle, and Trudy Wolf-Jacobs.

This look at the past compliments the current exhibition at the Arts Council of Lake Oswego’s 510 Museum & ARTspace, Chronicle: Plein Air. Plein air is a French expression meaning open air that refers to creating a work of art outside. Artists from all over the area and region joined together for a Plein Air paint out held earlier this month. All of the works on display were created between June 8-10th in public spaces around Lake Oswego. New this year, the beautiful Marylhurst University campus served as a paint out location.
