February kicks off our first art show of the year. “Curves + Lines” features three individual artists using paper as their medium of artistic expression. The show opens with an artist reception from 6:00pm to 9:00pm on Friday, February 3rd. The show will be on our walls until March 31st.
Julie Everhart, founder of Studio Olivine, is a letterpress artist living in Portland, Oregon who enjoys keeping her hands inky. She’s been drawing since she was old enough to hold a pen and continues to evolve and change her processes every day. Julie prints on wood, linen, and paper, using earth friendly methods and materials whenever possible. For her first collection of letterpress art prints, Julie focuses on the beauty of the ever-evolving process of life. Change is the theme, complete with bends and turns and additions of elements that have shaped the artist and her art into something new, complex, and beautiful. Pieces in this show are printed and pressed on handmade recycled paper, one color at a time with soy inks, and mounted onto bamboo.
Katie Kulper is an Oregonian (born and raised), and Portland based artist/designer. She created multi-dimension paper sculptures for the current show with the notion that in seasons of sadness and brokenness, there is beauty to be found. Similar to a long season of rain and clouds, new growth and clear skies are the result. Katie notes that she’s experienced her fair share of rainy seasons, and each piece in the show represents one of the places where she’s shed and shared tears. The intensely emotional process in her creative thinking and artistic execution offer a beautiful result.
Residing in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, Marnie Karger draws inspiration from the geography and history of the land around her as she reveres a sincere sense of place and home. Her unique artworks are created by carefully cutting and layering chromatically colored paper to represent depth maps of popular lakes, rivers, and coastlines. Each piece for the show is a handmade effort, reflecting attention to and appreciation of the beauty, mystery, and complexity of the contours beneath the surface of the water.
★ Please join us to meet the Portland based artists, Julie and Katie, at the Artist’s Reception on Friday, February 3rd from 6-9pm. The artwork is for purchase through March 31st, and available on our website too!
