Roaming
November 3rd, 2023- January 31st, 2024
Artist reception, Friday, November 3rd, 2023 from 5:30pm-8pm

Depicting local landscapes as well as exotic locals with sensitivity to light and space the 18 works in this exhibit are dream like and ethereal, reminding one of sites seen on long meandering walks.

These small works make for a thoughtful gift to anyone living in Portland or anyone that loves to travel. The beautiful images are printed on vellum and then gilded on the reverse with a zinc and copper alloy, giving a luminous effect while adding depth and texture.  These golden jewels must be seen in person; they glow in a way that doesn’t come across digitally. Each one is precious and unique.
