Cabin and a Dream
September 7 – 30
Opening Reception: First Thursday, September 7, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Best known for his abstractions of Pacific Northwest forests, mountains and fields, Kamuda divides his scenes into simplified, yet lively, shapes that convey and value imagination over veracity. With Cabin and a Dream, Kamuda continues his practice of re-constructing the landscape from his personal lexicon of forms and symbols, working with a palette knife rather than a brush, building up and scratching away oil pigment before finishing the surface with wax varnish.
July 6 – 29
Opening Reception: First Thursday, July 6, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Christine Sharp melds abstraction with representation of the landscape in vivid oil paintings that interpret the topography of the Northwest and beyond. She translates scenes with bold color and pattern. The effects are fragmented forms arranged into harmonious compositions resembling the land.
