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.”
