Stephen Wadner is a clock maker, but not the usual sort. Using found objects - old toasters, telephones, toys, or twinkie boxes - Wadner transforms “junk” into sleek, playful designs that imbue a sense of refinement greater than the sum of its parts. Exhibit runs Feb. 2 - 23 in the main gallery.
A native of Joseph, Oregon, Isaak is no stranger to impressive scenery, a fondness for which is obvious in her mixed media compositions. Abstract works that capture both the grandeur and intricacy of big landscapes, Isaak holds a fascination with mountains and oceans throughout her body of work, exploring their shapes, movement, and contours through a painting technique known as fluid acrylics.
Cove artist, Katherine Treffinger, creates richly textured abstract compositions. She layers the oil paint on with a trowel, then adds more, maybe scratching a line into it, allowing some to drip, scraping a layer or two away, or painting the whole thing translucent white and building again from there.
Exhibit runs in the main gallery Sept. 15 - Oct. 27.
“My work is concerned with a sense of place. I am fascinated by people’s connection to geography and particular places they find meaningful. I think about ideas, forces and people gathering and dispersing. The work in this show explores this concept of gathering spaces, of this coming together, dispersing, transforming and reconnecting." Runs August 4 - Sept. 8.
Instead of drawing from day-to-day life or even conscious imagination, Sykes seeks his inspiration at the margins of his mind—
images that come to him in dreams or in a flash of unconscious thought, “Like a slide show.” Sykes draws these fleeting, picturelike images from memory, creating abstract compositions. On display from June 9 - July 28th.
Hiroko Cannon has been painting seriously for more than 10 years, studying the plants and animals of the Plateau region while developing her style and technique.
