Art As Refuge
Feb
2
to Feb 28

Art As Refuge

This exhibition aims to start a conversation in our community about the themes of connection and isolation, regret and hope, angst and acceptance. Artists were asked to consider how art can create a space for dialogue about issues – social, political, and personal -- that affect us all. Some of the artists use nature as their inspiration, finding solace and hope in the great outdoors. Others seek out community connections, creating fellowship among shared experiences. Still others express their individual experiences with PTSD, infertility, cultural boundaries, and the current political climate.

There will be a diversity of media represented including photography, collage, sculpture, painting, and mixed-media.  

The exhibition runs: Feb. 2 - Feb. 28

First Friday Reception: Friday, Feb. 2, 5-7 p.m.

Lunch & Learn Artist Talk and Demo: Friday, Feb. 16, 12-1 p.m.

PechaKucha Style Artist Talks: Friday, Feb. 23,  12-1 p.m.

Drink & Draw: Spotlight on Monet

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST.  THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.  YOU ARE WELCOME TO CALL OUR OFFICE AND GET ON THE WAITING LIST.  503-675-3738.

 

Imagine yourself in the south of France, enjoying a crisp fall evening with the scent of lavender and freshly cut hay filling the air. Surveying the harvest landscape and seasonal light, we will study and paint in the style of Impressionist master Claude Monet.

Never painted? Don’t worry, we will guide you through the entire process. Using acrylic paint on canvas we will explore Monet’s study of light using his “Haystack” painting series as a guide. Along with a brief history of Impressionism in art and music we will learn a little about the French countryside in the time before the end of the 19th century.

This evening is designed to enrich, relax, and delight you.

Join us for this evening of artistic exploration on Friday, November 2 from 6-8pm. $50 secures your spot for the evening and includes inspired drinks, food, painting, and fun! Only 25 spots are available, so buy your ticket today.

Our guide for the evening will be artist Laura Janes, a fine artist specializing in painting natural forms. Her work is informed by the raw, organic beauty of mountains and deserts. She draws inspiration from elements found in the natural world, including plants, trees, water, and rocks.

Lunch & Learn with Artist Emily Miller

12:00 PM12:00

Lunch & Learn with Artist Emily Miller

Join us this Friday from noon to 1 p.m. for Emily Miller's demonstration on the process and technique of encaustic painting. Feel free to bring your lunch-we will provide beverages and dessert.

Encaustic painting is a spontaneous and intuitive process. Watch and learn how Emily begins with a general concept for each painting and how it flows into a work of art. Witnessing the unique effects of each stroke of the iron along with the addition of color keeps the process fun and exciting. Random results and accidental patterns are an integral part of the work.

The demonstration will be held in the gallery with attendees able to walk though and see the wonderful pieces in the Water & Form: Clay, Fiber and Encaustic exhibition.

No need to sign up.  Drop in format!

Water & Form - Clay, Fiber, and Encaustic by Emily Miller
Oct
6
to Nov 17

Water & Form - Clay, Fiber, and Encaustic by Emily Miller

Emily’s encaustic paintings use layers of colored wax melted together with heat, creating a velvety, luminous surface. Her work focuses on water forms and nature studies incorporating found objects, all inspired by the Pacific Northwest.

Emily's ceramics highlight the utility and beauty of natural forms through tradition wheel-thrown and hand-built stoneware and porcelain. Reflecting and responding to place and space, Emily will present work in media from clay to fiber and wax.

GALLERY HOURS - Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and by appointment.
