"Loving it!" with Dale Donovan

One passion of my career has been working with crystalline glaze. I use zinc to form crystals; it is an exacting process, requiring benevolence from the kiln god and 8 - 12 hours of hold time at 2000F. If the glaze is too thick or too thin or the temperature is off by 25 degrees - the result is clear glass. I hope people enjoy living with my work as I enjoy making it.

CEI ArtWorks Gallery • 408 SW Monroe St. • 4-8pm

Terminal Abstractions: Peter Strini

These works are the result of reestablishing myself as a painter and moving from audio to video on the PC. I have worked on a new style of painting for the last year, and have moved from "outsider" street art, to a style of abstraction. The videos are very loose and experimental, and I am trying to grasp abstraction in the paintings while letting the materials make many decisions, making intentional error and working with the result. I am schizophrenic and these works are very rooted in that. I consider my hallucinations and these works one, finding unity in God. Sometimes violent and painful, this process is cathartic, and a reminder of psycho graphic reality.

Grief and Honor

Artists and co-owners of The Hold Studio, Holly Campbell and Sharon Rackham King, practice the power of creating art as a healthy and effective coping mechanism for grief. This exhibit focuses on artwork created during or after the loss of loved ones. Some pieces come with a subtle focus on mental illness and/or suicide, other pieces are abstract, and some are more literal. 


Jagged Touch Studio  • 340 SW 2nd St. Ste #11 • 4-8pm

Exploring Intuitive Painting Digitally 

Artist Rani Primmer explores intuitive painting as images find their way onto the canvas, fed by the energy of an intentional spirit animal. The bear in all its strength shapes the energy of what is to come. I digitally drop colors and textures on to the painting and then explore the space where substance becomes shadow and shadows become substance.

Karen Wysopal Studio • 230 SW 3rd St, #310 • 4-8PM

Soul Syncopation: Guest Artist Zina Allen

Local artist Zina Allen has always been drawn to nature, and combined with an eye for abstract surrealism, produces small art pieces primarily in pencil and ink. Admirers of Zina’s art often describe it as dynamic and creating a sense of movement. With a bias for sweeping lines and dramatic shading, Zina’s art is the product of bold and colorful choices that reveal personality. She describes her art as representing “the ever-shifting nature of life’s journey.” Zina has been interested in art since being a young child, where her interest was shaped by countless hours spent visiting museums and attending art classes over the years. Her current passion is translating her dreams into mixed media art forms.

Our steadfast valley image makers like, Bonnie Hall, Jim Howland, Greg Pfarr and Bill Shumway will be filling out the show throughout the exhibit.

Chairs, Playgrounds and Other Things

PopsArtStudio featured show for July is a series of acrylics on wood panels examining light, dark and the spaces in-between. This series comes from the everyday wonders of the mundane. Chairs, playgrounds, coffee cups, and alters that are bathed in light revealing the startling presence of the "betwixt and between" where light and shadow connect and interact.

Good Feels Good

Good Feels Good features prints by 2018 Oregon State BFA graduate Erika Graves. These works aim to explore the complexities and problematic cultural representations of gender and sexuality. Graves’ focus on the LGBTQIA+ community in this series stems from her own questioning and identity. 


Studio Beatrice • 230 NW 6th St • 4-7PM

"Wild Things" by Faye Cummins

Faye's work explores nature-oriented,especially avian, subjects. Her focus over the past few years has been on rare, extinct birds. Though still interested in the rare, she has been painting more common and local birds, especially owls. "Birds offer a connection to the wild we can experience every day." She hopes to bring attention to creatures we rarely see and to help us appreciate the more common ones we might take for granted.
