Blues & Sunshine

Folk band “Blood & Sunshine” will play at Logcabin Medley, a perfect match. The traditional background of Logcabin quilt pattern. Their repertoire is all about life: the ups and downs. Guitar, mandolin, ukulele, washtub base are the core instruments of the group, while they sing well known, and “hidden” treasures from the American songbook. With the interactive Exquisite Corvallis, based on the idea of exquisite corps, Lauren Sharpton created an opportunity to interact, participate and develop an art installation. The Exquisite Corvallis is about engaging the community, all while creating a space ripe for collaboration, conversation and connection. Shortly after the CAW the three artworks will be revealed and exhibited to the community that helped create it.

VIVID conjuring

Through geometric pattern and color relationships, I aim to generate visual energy and space. Using color to suggest depth, I push through patterns of circles to paint skyscapes. The relationship between the skyscapes and the circles is a matter of tension between flat surface and profound expanse.

#catcoiffure 

a collaborative selfie-portrait by west coast based artist, Chelsea Foss Van Denend. Viewers are invited to participate in the completion and documentation of this imaginative work of art.

What grows from your head? 
Is it living is it dead?
Have you looked into the mirror?
Look closer is it clearer?

Does it growl does it purr?
Does it have the most delightful fur?
When you go to sleep does it stay awake?
Hunt for a little meal to make?

Do you think that it will stay for long?
Or will it be quick to move along?
What could you do to make it tame?
Give it a treat? Give it a name?

And The Moon Looked Back.

What an amazing physical and metaphysical experience we just shared in the Total Solar Eclipse! As with other collective experiences, many are moved to record, reflect on or explore thoughts, feeling and data around such phenomenal happenings. This exhibit will give venue to both what we know and what we might begin to see more clearly. We celebrate the facts and the mystery!
Pegasus Gallery will feature vignettes of earth imagery by known local artists like Bonnie Hall and her botanical serigraphs, Jim Howland's Oregon silkscreens, Lars Lohn's digital drawings, Karen Miller's fiber arts, and Bill Shumway's geological acrylics, as well as a collection of photography in the Old World Deli by Don Ferguson, John Ginn, Corwin Willard, Kazu Yokoyama and several others.
