Starting Jan. 10, explore the most elemental of artistic expression, drawing, at the Columbia Art Gallery in Hood River.
From illustration to scratchboard to sgraffito on clay, 17 artists use line and form to create evocative imagery.
Columbia Art Gallery kicks off 2014 with a line-up of artists from around the Northwest, all engaging in some form of drawing.
“I’m thrilled to be presenting such a wide array of talent in this show,” said curator Rachel Harvey. “The show includes Ben Dewey, who has done freelance work for Marvel and Dark Horse, and other award-winning artists such as scratchboard artist Judy Fairley and recent New York transplant Gavin McClure. These are just three of the 17 artists, each bringing to life the whimsical, the dark, the chaotic, the thoughtful, on surfaces such as paper, board, linoleum and clay.”
Blues musicians Tess and Patrik Barr perform at the opening reception Friday, Jan. 10, from 6 to 8 p.m.
The gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
