Don Lee's 'Folds & Shadows' Woodmapping Show

Posted by Debbe Hamada on

On our walls until August 31st, Don Lee's newest woodmapping show, Folds & Shadows.

 

This show introduces two new wood map series created by this local maker. “Folds” is a modern tapestry, created with wood and fabric to make a visually stunning and tactile map.

The delicate profiles and geometries form the “Shadows” series, representing some of the many map projections used in cartography.

Woodmapping is a creation by Don Lee. Each map is beautifully handcrafted with materials locally sourced and available in a variety of sizes and wood species. 

Stop in to see it this month!

Rachel Austin - Meet the Artist!

Posted by Stephanie Yoo on

Join us July 8th from 1-3 pm for an opening reception! Meet the artist, share some conversation and refreshments and view gorgeous Botanical Shadow Paintings!

Rachel Austin's paintings are inspired by her garden and her love of plants. This series of botanical watercolors on wood are of the soft, abstracted shadows found in her garden and on hikes in the Pacific Northwest.  

The paintings are done with watercolor and acrylic to create understated and meditative pieces. Rachel has been a full time artist since 2006 when after getting a degree in finance she realized art was probably a better path for her.  

 

 

Rachel’s studio is in her home in SE Portland where she paints, folds cards and packages prints for happy customers and shops all over the country.

Jeni Lee Rain Paintings Reception + Show

Posted by Debbe Hamada on

Art Reception: Sunday, July 16th 2-4pm.
Meet the artist, sip some wine, ponder how great these paintings would look in your home!
Show runs July 16th - August 31st

We are happy to host a show of Jeni Lee's original rain paintings. We've featured Jeni's paintings on our walls for the last few years, and this show will introduce new work from the same series. If you haven't seen Jeni's gorgeous, atmospheric paintings yet - this is a can't miss event!


What is a Rain Painting? Jeni describes it here: "On a rainy afternoon, while working in the studio, I found myself taking the paintings outdoors, into and under the falling rain, then back inside to the studio, then out again. This new process allowed me and the paintings to engage with the intermittent rain showers, creating unique works through chance and timing, each with patterns and moments of color and light.

Each Rain Painting is truly one of a kind, created with layers of color, rain and collected recycled rainwater."
