ART SHOW OPENING DAY!
"Folds & Shadows"
FEATURED ARTIST: DON LEE
Meet the artist from 2pm - 4pm
"Folds" and "Shadows" are two new map series from Woodmapping local artist, Don Lee. A successful Portland architect, Don somehow manages to find time to create stunning wooden art pieces unlike anything you've seen before!
"Folds" is a modern take on a tapestry, created with wood and fabric, to make a visually stunning and tactile map.
The delicate profiles and geometries which form the "Shadows" series represent some of the many map projections used in traditional cartography.
Each map is beautifully handcrafted with locally sourced materials and is available in a variety of sizes and wood species.
All are welcome so stop by and talk to Don about mapping and his unique woodwork maps.
