THERE IS so much to see at the newly renovated gallery that it boggles the mind - and eyes.
Such lovely work and such a variety.
Tim Tanner has constructed a new horse out of his assorted recycled bits and pieces and the equine is so elegant! Very striking against the new gallery wall - you'll see it as soon as you come in the door to your left.
Deborah and Richard Bloom have a wonderful Hawaiian protea construction with obsidian chimes hanging - and the tinkling of the stones is charming. Against the newly painted persimmon wall, they blend in wonderfully.
Jan Brattain has been making more wall hangings and even some clothes for the gallery. Her work is bright, colorful and her handwork is that of a true craftsman.
Be sure and join us at the gallery on Thursday, April 9, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. to see the "new" gallery, meet the artists, visit, nibble, listen to music and visit with friends. This is sure to be another historic step in Valley Art Gallery's journey - from 1966 to 2009 - this time a giant step toward the future.
Walt Weber has several bright watercolors for sale, that capture spring perfectly and they just might be the thing to lighten up a room you have - or someone's life! An engaging and thoroughly spring-like grouping of flowering quince in a vase is done with a sure hand.
C. Robinson's prints, "Brookwood II," here with trees in autumn colors, is small but powerful.
Gourds, incised and colored in lovely hues, will enchant the viewer and may even inspire a whole new decorating theme in your home.
Quilted wall hangings can add that special touch to your home, also, with an elegant, artistic homespun touch.
Purses, pottery, oil paintings, pastels, all this and more awaits you at the Valley Art Gallery in Forest Grove, 2022 Main St.
