GALLERY NEWS & UPDATES: NOVEMBER • 2017
EARTH and SKY
OPENING NOV 11
Save the date. The OPENING RECEPTION for Jay Ylvisaker and Liisa Rahkonen's new exhibit at Rowboat Gallery is Saturday, NOV 11, 5 to 7:30 pm.
Liisa will be showing primarily works on paper, focusing on the power, mystery, and quite dignity of the birds that inhabit our coastal wetlands and woods. She also has created a wonderful new collection of expressive stoneware Spirit Animals.
Jay, whose finely-crafted wood structures have intrigued gallery visitors for the last two years, has continued to explore the intersection of architecture, sculpture, and sacred spaces in a new body of work created specifically for this show.

New Ceramic Work
Long-time Portland ceramic artist Patrick Horsley is now at Rowboat. Initially, we are showing sixteen new sculptural works, including Three-Piece Wall Tile (above), which was part of the John Stahl Memorial Fund benefit exhibit at our opening on September 9th.
Also included are several large platters and plates, lidded jars, tall bottles, and "canoe" shaped vessels - all exquisitely decorated with Horsley's iconic glazes.
