“Richard Gaffield’s mixed media paintings take us to timeless rural country settings. Wire fences wrestle with sage brush in one open scene, while a flowering pink tree celebrates spring in another. Like favorite passages of oft-told stories, they take us back to another time and place.”
The paintings are on the 2nd floor of the Oregon City Community Development Building at 221 Molalla Ave for three months and then at Citizens Bank, 19245 Molalla Ave until the end of June.
Imagine your artwork on display in a historic home-like setting. A warm fire crackles in the massive brick fireplace, inviting you to relax and read, while rows of dark-toned bookcases envelope the room with riveting subjects to share. Has your artwork been sold to a local book lover? In this case, no! It’s on display at the pARTners in ART gallery space at the Oregon City Library!
Eight of our artists are participating in the January-March rotation, and it’s fascinating to see how the unique literary surroundings add context to their work. Historic subjects, such as Eric Griswold’s photographs of the abandoned Blue Heron Mill or Susan Schenk’s mixed media interpretations of the Donald and Newberg mills, take on extra significance in the century-old library space. Architectural subjects, such as the monumental bridges inspiring both Anita Reuther’s and Eileen Holtzman’s paintings, harmonize beautifully with the strong architectural features of the gallery room. The nostalgic landscape in Richard Gaffield’s “Abandoned View” seems especially compelling as the vacant log cabin and rusty antique sedan take us back in time along with their historic venue.

These paintings of mine were recently exhibited in various public places in Oregon City and Portland.
3 paintings (ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH, YOUNG TUMBLEWEEDS and JIM’S MARSH) were accepted for hanging at Oregon City Planning Commission, 221 Molalla Ave. GRANDPA’S WHEELBARROW, ABANDONED BARN and GIRL PLAYING JACKS were moved to Oregon City Citizens Bank, 19245 Molalla Ave. They are for sale at each location for 3 months.
“The 221 Gallery’s 3rd Quarter 2016 rotation brings five uniquely gifted artists together for a display that both soothes and surprises. Despite their differences, each artist contributes to a theme found in Susan’s Schenk’s collage. Her text, “the process of finding pattern” sets the tone for the entire exhibit.
Richard Gaffield’s “Rocky Mountain High” also makes a strong statement in its orange color, but here, the color belongs to the rising mountain cliffs bordering his view. Reflected in the water below, their strong pattern creates a double image, dwarfing the forest greens and river rock grays between them. Learn more at www.richardgaffield.com.”
