GALLERY NEWS & UPDATES: NOVEMBER • 2015
Through Dec 14th
Long-time Rowboat Gallery exhibitor Greg Wilbur, who works primarily with copper, bronze and silver using the traditional hammering and annealing technique of “raising” to create sculptural forms, has assembled five other outstanding Northwest artists who also work extensively with metals in various artistic and functional applications.
Rock the Boat
Storytelling Dec 5th
An evening of storytelling returns to Rowboat Gallery December 5th at 7:00 pm, featuring members of the community telling short (under 10 minutes), true stories. The theme for the evening will be “Surprise Me,” and storytellers will include several new voices, as well as returnees from past events. Everyone is invited to this free, informal gathering, although stories are uncensored and may not be appropriate for children.
Autumn in the Estuary (above) is one of several new acrylic paintings on canvas that Portland artist Angelita Surmon has brought to Rowboat. We are also showing two of her uniquely beautiful kiln-formed glass panels. Angelita will be the featured artist at Waterstone Gallery’s new Pearl District location from December 1 through January 3. Details are available at Waterstone’s website.
Four New Sculptures
Shannon Weber has brought in four new sculptural pieces utilizing dried sea kelp, beaver sticks, salvaged stainless steel rigging cable from the docks at Port Orford, and other found material, wonderfully woven and shaped into intriguing organic forms.
The circular form factor and intense colors of Judy Vogland’s new painting “Healing Waters, Brooten Hill, Oregon,” has been an immediate favorite of gallery visitors. Also new in the gallery are a number of Judy’s constructed narrative sculptural wall hangings.
Prior to leaving for an extended stay in Oaxaca, Mexico, Barb Campbell and Javier Cervantes brought in a beautiful selection of functional tableware.
