CORVALLIS ARTS WALK • December 21, 2017


THE ARTS CENTER • 700 SW Madison Ave • 4-8pm

De-construction of an exhibit

In “Deconstruction of an Exhibit” the public can take a peek behind the scene, and see what it takes to go from a full exhibit to empty walls, ready for the next one. When all this is going on, there is viewing and discussing of the work not yet packed up, talking with buyers and artists, discussing on what comes next. Buyers can pick up artwork, Exhibition Committee members pack up work (in packing materials saved, the work goes back as the artist packed it up), work gets tracked when packed, and when picked up. Signage is being removed, holes filled, and the wall patched up with paint. Ready for the next one.

Michael Boonstra: The Surface of the Sky

The Surface of the Sky is an exhibition of reimagined works from Michael Boonstra. Drawings that were initially created over a decade ago in response to forest fires are revisited and redrawn in ways that echo past works, while also embodying elements of Boonstra’s current creative process. 

Michael Boonstra’s current interests revolve around ideas of landscape representation, time scales, and perceptual phenomena. He examines these ideas through a creative process that continually shifts between drawing, photography, installation, and sculpture. Boonstra has received project funding from the Ford Family Foundation, and Ford Family Foundation-sponsored residencies at Playa and the Djerassi Resident Artist Program, as well as a Career Opportunity Grant from the Oregon Arts Commission. Boonstra has had recent solo exhibitions at Duplex in Portland, the A.N. Bush Gallery in Salem, and Fairbanks Gallery at Oregon State University. He is also a member of Gray Space Project, a collective of Oregon artists that examine landscape, site, and context through direct interventions.

PEGASUS GALLERY • 341 SW 2nd St. •  4-8PM

Moveable Feast of Art

Every year for almost 20 years now, Pegasus Gallery has hosted an annual holiday exhibit that we offer like a tapas feast for the eyes. We invite ready local and regional artists to bring in a handful of works for shoppers to choose between as they try to decide on just the right thing for people they love and want to give some juicy creative thing to instead or as well as shopping at the big stores or online. A little of both seems just right! Swing through and take in both the "fine arts" gallery experience and the arts that are ready to buy!
