The opening reception at The Arts Center in Corvallis was well attended this evening. The lovely, summer-like evening was probably a contributing factor. There was a wonderful selection of pieces chosen by the juror Johanna Seasonwein. The show includes painting, photography, basketry, mixed-media, 3D, furniture and one textile piece, my Rift Valley. Johanna's desire to include a wide range of media resulted in a beautiful, interesting show.
Here is my piece hanging in the stage area. Watch those appetizers, please!
The Arts Center is a lovely old Gothic Revival style church and is a beautiful venue for showing art. What I like about this place is that they never crowd the art. Each piece gets a chance to really shine on its own. Below is one of the winners of the four Juror's Awards. It is Silver Salmon by Analee Fuentes.
Here's The Art Center from the outside. Pretty cool building!
