A SENSE OF PLACE: The Allison
Exhibit
April 17 - May 8, 2015

We decided to explore how our individual interpretations of one place, known to us all, might vary or coincide.  We chose the Allison Inn and Spa in Newberg, Oregon and had a couple of field trips to obtain photos which were intended as jumping off points for our pieces.  Some artists chose to lean closer to the representational aspect in their portrayal, while others moved toward abstraction.  Our goal was to create one “Hardscape” piece and one “Softscape” piece.  Hardscape inspiration was likely to come from either the architecture of the building itself, or some of the rigid lines surrounding it such as the stonework or sculpture.  The Softscapes might be related to the lush gardens, surrounding bounty of Willamette Valley agriculture or the more organic sculptures the Allison has scattered about its grounds.




EXTREME STUDIES
Exhibit
April 11 - 25, 2014

MIX artists developed a series of new works examining the concept "in the extreme". Whether it be through use of a single theme or similar technique, the work explores material, shape or distortion and color "in the extreme". To further unify the body of work, each piece is rendered at 18 inches square.






LOCALLY GROWN
Exhibit
April26 - May 26, 2013

People are becoming increasingly interested in the health of the food they eat. Farmer's markets are growing in popularity. Restaurants proudly announce that their food is purchased locally. Barbara Kingsolver wrote in Animal, Vegetable, Miracle the story of her family's desire and subsequent trial to eat only what they could grow themselves. The quilts for this exhibit were inspired by these and other personal experiences with "locally grown."
