Show dates are February 7th to March 3rd, 2023
Also showing are featured members Rayne Pelham, Alison Hennes, and Edward Teague.
Rayne Pelham is showing beadwork with painted acrylic backgrounds.
The theme of this series is "Native In Oregon." These detailed pieces are all works designed and created by Rayne, a native, artist, and retired educator living in Lane County. Her works are themed around her heritage and growing up in the Pacific Northwest. The most exciting part of her artistry is that these works are almost entirely done by hand stitching beads that are about a millimeter in width to canvas! Hours of time and attention go into every piece to create marvelously detailed works of art! Website: grandmotherspiderdesign.com
Alison Hennes' subjects are primarily animal and nature scenes, representational and whimsical art of ink drawings, ink and watercolor pens, and watercolor. She hopes her art stirs your imagination, gives you a feeling of joy and perhaps awakens a little bit of the child in each of us.
"Frozen Roses," by Edward Teague. When the bloom season of roses nears its end, and an early frost occurs, roses transform to a different kind of beauty. Edward has often photographed the rich variety of shapes, patterns, and textures that emerge in the final stages of the blooms, quite different from the cultivated blossoms of the flowers in their prime. In the past year, using acrylic mediums, Edward has employed 13 of these photographs as the foundation for painted portraits of each unique flower. With painterly expressionism, the resulting images portray the flowers that can be characterized variously as elegant, wistful, joyful, athletic, and even raucous. In the painted photographs, the roses are again transformed, frozen in time by the magic of art, while respecting the impermanence and transience that they also envision.
Plus new work from members of the Emerald Art Center.
