New Show for March at Sticks and Stones Features 4 Artists
Sculpture artist Lorinda Roland will be showing work for the first time in over a decade including works in bronze, silver, gold, copper and platinum. Many of Roland's works take inspiration from the San Juan Islands, poetry and her experiences as a winner of both the Louis Comfort Tiffany Grant and the Guggenheim Fellowship in the 1960s.
This show will also mark the West Coast debut of collage artist Jay Riggio of New York. Riggio's delicately surreal images play with the concepts of life, death, humor, love and above all; the absurdity of the human condition. Riggio works from discarded books and magazines he salvages himself.
Joining Riggio in the art of bringing new life to old images, Tim Manthey will be presenting his striking mixed media collages this month. Born and raised in the PNW, Manthey mines forgotten vintage media to compel and challenge the imagination with balanced and mindful creations.
Alice Marshall will be returning to the Sticks & Stones Gallery this month to debut her new series of oil-on-wood portraits of the native birds of Oregon. Inspired by Audubon and the color palette of Greek Orthodox art, Marshall has created a series of classic yet definitively modern studies. Marshall also hopes that her portrayal of these species will remind us all to be conscious of their precious existence.
A reception will be held Friday, March 13th from 7-11 pm to celebrate the unveiling of the exhibition and offer viewers the chance to hear from the artists.
