The lack of pottery news here can be attributed to my position as Director of The Arts Center in Corvallis.
Was hired in April 2014 and remained on steep learning curve first few years. As 2018 turns into spring, after weathering financial set-backs and many other lessons learned, can now envision a future sustaining and growing community arts through our programs.
There are innovative arts exhibitions, many public events, engaging arts classes & camps for people of all ages, as well as other ways to experience the arts at The Arts Center.
If you find yourself in Corvallis, stop by and say Hi.
Shots of my show with Mike Baggetta at Art Elements Gallery, Newberg. Our work is a wonderful pairing of 2D & 3D with both of us employing energetic lines, layers of color and mysterious meanings. Thanks to Loni and Lauren for a super installation of our various pieces.
“Tango” on the left, Mike’s works that have multiple ways they can be hung
“Green Lookout” in the foreground
“Blue Dream Boat” in foreground with three strong monoprints by Mike Baggetta
“Time Will Tell” in foreground and a look into the rest of the Gallery
“Great Expectations” and “Sweet Dreams” go great with Mike’s dreamy layered, plaster and wax painting
Always terrific when the press turns an interested eye toward arts and crafts. Our local Alt Newspaper, The Corvallis Advocate has been running a number of artist profiles and so got my turn in the limelight thanks to reporter Mandy Clark. It was a fun show and tell since she was so enthusiastic.
Mandy is someone to watch. Not only has she run a successful Etsy shop while finishing school and working full time, she also is on the editorial board of a NW press, blogs faithfully about pizza (YUM!) and luckily for us is sharing her talents with The CVO Advocate. Here’s a link to the feature she wrote about lil ole me:
I’ve got work at the Concourse Gallery on OSU Campus, along with Alan Higinbotham, Jennifer Lommers, Jan Roberts-Dominguez, Ginny Gibson, Victor Guschov and Bruce Coblentz. The show is called HandMade in Oregon X. Always enjoy being in such good company.
