Opening reception for Color and Shape, an exhibition, featuring new contemporary art of regional artists Bill Baily, Diane Copenhaver, Tanya Gardner, Renée Hafeman, Mike Mason, Emily Miller, Zifen Qian and Jorjett Strumme, as well as introducing new artists Donna Sanson and Candy Swartz. The show covers every aspect of art, textures, materials and finishes, highlighting the quintessentially colorful fall season.
“Color and Shape are key elements in the language of abstract art. Both of these elements of design offer infinite possibilities to communicate visually. Both have the power to create an energy that is almost palpable. Whether cool and calming, warm and energizing, light or dark, color can transport us to another place or time. Shape can create an illusion, a feeling, or sense of something. In my current art work, I have used both of these elements of design incorporating colors inspired by the beautiful Oregon coast and explored the continuum of abstraction through shape,” Diane Copenhaver.
Fall habitat lecture by naturalist and wildlife photographer Neal Maine at 6: pm. Live music by Shirley 88. Light bites and beverages.
