2017 Exhibits

January – February: Angela Purviance.
Exhibition Dates:
January 14th – February 15th.
Angela is a recent graduate from Oregon State University where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. During her time at Oregon State University Angela focused in printmaking, where she took on the challenge of learning how to produce full color Intaglio prints. This type of copper plate etching is a multi-step process involving reworking a single plate for each color/layer of the image. In her studies she successfully produced vibrant, whimsical prints and quickly became one of the top printmakers in her graduating class. Since her graduation Angela has continued copper plate etching and printing from her home studio using nontoxic techniques.

Exhibition Dates: April 1 – April 30
Drea’s work evolves around the ocean landscape, passing time and repeat patterns in nature. Seduced by the complexities of water and geometric forms in the ocean or surrounding areas, She seeks to to create a visual representation of these elements. The act of elevating the objects from their stationary existence by removing them from their original context is something that interests her. When found objects are removed from the environment in which they exists, the most banal object transcends itself to become exotic. By integrating man-made debris she hopes to aide in promoting environmental stewardship through art.
