Bare Walls: On the spot collaborative art creation & exhibition

An interactive art-making experiment for our CAW guests. Art substrates (paper, plywood, prepped panels, canvas) will be available; work will go on display when the pool of artist jurors declare a work completed! The resulting community-created art will remain on display for 3 weeks. It’s a great opportunity to get a feel for creating a collaborative work that will be on display as a purchasable work of art. Proceeds from art sales will go to MAXtivity for their community arts programming.

Drawing for All Seasons

Drawing for all Seasons is our featured artist show with Carol Chapel: “Drawings are done on botany dyed paper. I dyed the paper using plants of the season, then did drawings of the plants of the same season. They are not necessarily the same plants I used to dye the paper. The dyed paper is to add depth and atmosphere to the drawings, not to mimic the drawings.”

Ants on a Log Cafe

401 SW Jefferson Ave

4-6 PM only

Three Artists

Ants on a Log Cafe will feature three artists: Valerie Skelton, Rhiannon Fritschle and Rae Nelson.

Valerie is a muralist and portrait artist who will be offering on-the-spot, realistic live portrait art. Rhiannon hand-makes relief prints inspired by the natural (and supernatural!) world, and lately has been looking for more sustainable ways to create art using paper that would otherwise be thrown away. Rae is a painter who loves bringing contemplation and joy to people through their art; each painting is an authentic expression of a range of different human experiences and emotions.

Dharma: Its Giving Head

Dharmakrishna “Dharma” Mirza is an artist, activist and scholar. Dharma is pursuing her PhD at OSU in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Public Health. Dharma’s methods draw from her lived experiences as a biracial, disabled, queer, intersex Muslim trans woman and Khwaja Sira (Pakistani Third Gender identity). This exhibit is part of the Queervallis Drag History Project’s Gallery Story Series. Dharma aims to have her art and the community’s stories shared as a means of honoring the contributions and legacy of the LGBTQ+ and QTIBIPOC communities of Benton County. “It’s Giving Head” focuses on the various drag aesthetics with a focus on the face as the artists’ canvas, using a cheeky subversive approach.

Hopeful Things in Dark Places – Heather Lee Birdsong

The paintings in Hopeful Things in Dark Places, an exhibition by Portland artist Heather Lee Birdsong, represent her efforts to understand “home” as a physical place, separate from and alongside “home” as a feeling of belonging. Birdsong reconstructs and merges half-remembered buildings from different times in her life with carefully observed landscapes, moving (as the artist did) from the Mojave Desert to Pacific Northwest temperate rainforests. Invasive, native, and toxic plant species allude to complex issues including disposable architecture, encroaching climate change, and relationships that become tied to the places where they blossom or wither.

Mystery Garden Series – Michael Hone

Local artist Michael Hone has been really finding his voice and an artist this year. Working with acrylic on canvas, Hone diligently shows up for himself, painting whenever he gets a chance. From landscapes to abstracts, his newest series has been a juicy combination of botanicals and abstraction he calls his Mystery Garden Series. Bursting with color and movement, Hone’s brushwork is inspiring.
