Roz and I went to Oregon Fruit in Salem, Oregon to prepare the cans for our 100 Artist Show that is scheduled for February 2010. The show is titled "Nourish & Sustain" and will benefit Marion Polk Food Share.
We had a great time until after around the 75th can the machine decided to crush everything that we set on the line. Lucky for us we had experienced people with crowbars and screwdrivers to remedy the problem (no pictures showing Roz and I on our hands and knees praying to the canning God). Sad to say a few cans were sacrificed for this project.
just opened her "installation" show at the Salem Art Association. Kristin has been working a full year in planning, going on location and doing extensive research. Kristin's body of work was inspired by her experiences in the Zena Forest – a local model for sustainable forestry practices and site in which she has explored the complex relationship between harvesting and artistic practice. The resulting exhibit invites reflections on human relation to landscape and the natural world. A must see if you are in Salem.
We represent Northwest artists working in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, works on paper, ceramics, jewelry and mixed media.
Our second gallery features exhibitions on a monthly basis, as well as selected group shows and special exhibitions. To arrange an appointment, please call 503-581-3229 or email; firstname.lastname@example.org
During our years of operating, we have successfully encouraged the broadening and blossoming of the Salem art scene. We are dedicated to serving our clients as well as our artists. The relationships that we cultivate with our clients and our artists have been and will continue to be long and rewarding. We encourage you to take the time to be acquainted with us and take the time to appreciate the art we enjoy so much.
