Your Official Invite to The Hunt Opening!!

The Hunt
Curated by Beth I. Robinson
July 7- July 27, 2011
The Hoffman Gallery on the Oregon College of Art and Craft Campus
Opening reception on Thursday, July 7 from 4:00-7:00
This group show documents a gentle “scavenger hunt” within 
Oregon Health and Science University’s 
Historical Collection and Archives. 
The item "found" was interpreted or utilized as 
inspiration by each of the artists into the creation of a 
new piece (without any harm done to the item "found.")
It will be a great opportunity for artists and viewers 
to reflect on the importance of these collections.

Special Thank You to:
Ian Terrell, Jessie Benenson & Tiger Harry
Sarah, Karen & Maija from Oregon Health & Science University
Historical Archive and Collections
Arthur @ the Hoffman Gallery
Oregon College of Art and Craft

Maria & Marilyn
Robert: my sweet understanding fella

It Is June and Still Wearing a Wool Coat?!?

I have to say I have always loved the rain in Oregon....
but I am finding myself these days wishing 
for white sand and sunshine.
Maybe today...

News from the studio:
All is moving along well for "The Hunt" Show
I have had many studio visits in the last month. 
Looking @ everyones work...
I am ever amazed by the talented artist around me.

Here is a brief look at my own object:

I am working on about a 30 page book of 
collage, cut work, mixed media and "scanography."

Posting more images as they come of my own and the other artist.
Hope to see you @ the opening on July 7 @ the Hoffman in PDX!
