Clymer Museum & Gallery Solo Exhibition – March 4, 2016

I feel so honored for the opportunity to exhibit at the Clymer Museum & Gallery next month! The title for the show is “From the Headwaters to the Sea.”   The public reception is scheduled for Friday, March 4, 2016, from 5pm-7pm, and  the works will hang for two months, from March 4, 2016 – April 30, 2016.

It’s been a busy last couple of weeks getting the works photographed and framed.  Some people have been asking if the works are for sale – and the answer is yes, all works are for sale, with the exception of two paintings that were borrowed from private collections because they fit the theme of the show.

There are over 30 works in the collection, varying in size from large to small.  I included three field drawings, because, as many of you know, I like to share the process of how I create the final paintings.

An excerpt from the Artist Statement for the show –

“…Water represents birth and life, and a river is water’s journey through time. These paintings represent the passage that I took from the headwaters, a place where small streams join and a river is born, to the sea. I visited many mountains and many rivers to capture the essence of the forms that water takes as it flows, pulled by gravity from above. I have roots on both sides of the Cascades, on the dry side and the wet, as the rivers flow westward to the mighty Pacific Ocean…”

Hope to see you there!
