The tone and timbre of Christopher Adam's pieces are just as bold as I'd remembered. They grab your attention and offer a journey of imagination through imagery. He continues to be an exciting artist to follow.
Madelaine Corbin installed a section of the same living space she created in the window only here she's added web address handouts so gallery goers can listen to a window conversation on their smart phone while surrounded by a slice of the environment it was held in. A wonderful channeling for participants.
The visual jazz piece created by Tanner Henderson & Francisco Morales owns one entire side of Pegasus gallery. It's colors and shapes lead your eyes on an exploratory compilation of two distinct artists reacting to each other across mixed media. "Pow".
Lauren Sharpton & Katrina Henry have re-hung the composite face they created in the window (made up of more than 90 Corvallis residents), as well as a sample of the participatory word-art they created with window passersby. True to their art form they've also installed a participatory piece on one wall of the Deli that calls people to contribute. This time they're building a compilation selfie of Corvallis that will be updated regularly on the screen in the deli.
Lauren Ohlgren's work is in Azure gallery presented with an adroit use of twine and clothes pins. It's a perfect complement to her art which is anything but. It speaks in plain emotion and poignantly recalls half memories. A beautiful wash of stimuli in this one room fine-art gallery.
