Upcoming: Al Stone
May 3, 6-9pm
Gallery 114 presents new photographs by Jon Gottshall in a show entitled “Scale.” This show is Gottshall's homage to landscape photographers of the past, to those who have celebrated the humbling vastness of the land around us and yet also made it seem tactile and accessible. The show opens with a reception for the artist First Thursday, April 5, 6 to 9 pm, and runs through Saturday, April 28.

In her show, "Nature, Interpreted," Linda Tross offers paintings and ceramic sculpture that give deep focus to nature and ways of seeing it. In images that are not really about "representation" of landscape, she draws on memory to refocus on places seen in instants of change. Large-scale forces of movement and change through time--geological formations, light and dark, weather, sea, glaciers--are frequent references in her work. Moments in time fixed in imagery are for her interpretations and, paradoxically, a limited, human way of grasping the seemingly limitless renewal and inventiveness of nature.
In the South Gallery several other Gallery 114 artists will contribute works in various media to "Nature, Interpreted": Myra Clark, Jeff Leake, Mary Jo Mann, Curtis Settino, David Slader, and Rachael Zur.Video Preview »

Joanie Krug & Diane Kingzett
Joanie is intrigued by the mystery and provocative journey of painting. "images transform in unexpected ways to become something differently alive. Pictures become a tapestry of layered colors." Some under-painting is revealed, some remains hidden. Women's postures are gestural and formidable. Diane’s abstract landscapes use form and color with emotion and suggestive atmosphere. "Landscapes emanate energy-from structures, people, animals, and spirits which have passed through space. Abstract landscapes invite viewers to impose their own sense of belonging into scenes remembered or imagined." Her recent paintings are a response to a shift in political and social landscapes and explores internal and external pressures, a longing for escapism and coming to terms with "the way things are".Video Preview »
David Slader presents "Human Being"
David Slader with guests, B. Pat, Jerome Sloan & David Drenth
Gallery 114 is distinctive in allowing each member artist total artistic control over her exhibit. For July, gallery member David Slader has invited three guest artists: three men, two of whom are “lifers,” who created their art in an Oregon penitentiary cell. Work of these prison artists and David’s recent paintings of women join together in a refrain demanding basic dignity for all human beings. Jerome Sloan, David Drenth, and B. Pat, somehow make art with crude materials, including cereal box cardboard, brown paper used to wrap prison laundry, and ground-up M&M’s. Some work is brutal, some tender and poetic; all of it is a complete surprise. David Slader describes stumbling upon oregonprisonart.org and being stunned to discover art of compelling expressive power. "To most of us," he says, "our incarcerated population--which at 14,000 is bigger than many Oregon towns--is invisible." He goes on to point out that anyone who can create art like this "has a soul that cannot be ignored."Video Preview »
Artists tackle questions about the world of tomorrow: what will politics, science, technology, the human condition, and making art look like? Do artists foresee a world of fear or hope? Feel empowered or endangered? Artists respond to these questions in diverse media, telling their stories of the future. Sixteen artists, seven from the Northwest, were selected to present new work. Artist only reception Wednesday, May 31, 7-9 pm. Artists: Sheila DeLaquil, Don Bailey, Sky Black, Remy Lavelle, A. Corrinne LaNeave, Preston Boyd, Francene Levinson, Heather Cornelius, Barbara Martin, Bryan Oxender, Conor Dowdle, Barbara Paanakker, Matthew Hopson-Walker, Tanya Sue Todd, Erinn Kathryn, Shea WilkinsonVideo Preview »

Two grown women
reimagine their lives
by playing dolls
As a little girl I had played fiercely with my doll. I dressed her, undressed her, rocked her, and threw her against a wall. Here was the opportunity, as an adult, to relive all that. But now I could express it through the filter of what I have learned and what I continue to learn as I come to terms with my frailties.
