ARTWalk is from 5pm to 9pm and this month we will hosting Shannon Ray.
In Shannon's Words:
I paint the landscapes that I live within. Up here the sky breathes, and sometimes settles very nicely on the ground. The paintings range from abstractions to literal depictions. I present originals, prints, and home decorative items.
I am a painter’s painter. I am most interested in the paint films – application, abrasion, removal and manipulations. Although my work can seem very different from piece to piece, it’s really all about the paint – how I can push it – and my response when it surprises me.
Oregon and the Northwest has been my muse since before I ever landed here more than 3 decades ago. Where I grew up trees existed only if people planted them in their front yards. That’s probably why trees populate so much of my home and my paintings now.
I’ve raised my family here, and in turn, the region has raised my artwork.
In addition this First Friday we will be hosting a member of Rusty Truck Brewery to answer all the beer questions you might have as well as letting you sample some of the beers we have on tap.
The mission of Rusty Truck Brewing Company is simply to brew great beer in a great place. The cool climate, access to wonderful water and the best Oregon grown hops, makes Oregon, and especially the Oregon coast, a great place to brew great beer.
At the same time, we are striving through our enterprise to help our local economy by increasing tourism, providing local employment and supporting other local businesses and community based charitable organizations.
