thank you to everyone who stopped by for our open house!
Intersections is a series of Portland street intersections created by linocut artist Shannon Buck. The balancing act of working with negative space and contrast, and improvising to create grey areas in linoleum formed the basis for this work as we witness the changes within the Portland urban landscape and how the intersections between race, social status, and the old and the new converge.
On display in conjunction with Portland Open Studios. Shannon Buck is one of 106 Portland artists participating in this yearly event! Join us the weekends of Oct 14 & 15th and Oct 21st & 22nd 10am-5pm for a sneak peak at her process and workspace, and get a chance to pull your very own letterpress souvenir!
Artist Jan Bentley is showcasing a collection of acrylics and watercolors that span the past twenty years.
The painter’s work has been inspired and influenced by her travels throughout Europe and love of the impressionist masters of the 20th Century.

Luke Buser of Musique Plastique and his Fumage/Smoke Paintings
Fumage is a technique using smoke from fire (in this case, candles) to create an impression on canvas. The pieces tend to have a dimensional effect. Each piece will consist of a number of “smoke dots” and will have the effect of showing greater detail as the dots grow in size.
