New Life Forms

The New Still Life

The Davis and Cline Gallery will launch its final set of two-month exhibitions on Friday August 1st at 5 pm.

“NEW LIFEFORMS” will feature the artwork of Kathleen Elliot, a San Francisco bay area glass artist whose flameworked and blown glass sculptures create a strange world of plants and animals that appear to meld in an inspired act of imaginative creationism..

“THE NEW STILL LIFE” is a special show in our visiting artist program for 2012. With special arrangements with the Froelick Gallery in Portland, richly layered mixed media paintings by Portland artist Katherine Ace revisit the idea of the Still Life art form in a contemporary way.

New Work by Bruce Bayard

Bruce Bayard presents a series of new collages called “Passages.” This latest work explores the symbolic territory of making long journeys across land, over sea, from one phase of life to another, and from life to death. Rich, saturated colors contrast against warm grays. Maps, ocean, wheels, moon, stars, and ship rigging convey nostalgia; a sense of vague, haunting memories.

The series is inspired by the moving collages presented during the concert series called “Triptychs,” presented by Bayard and Todd Barton every First Saturday at the DanceSpace.

People, Places and Things of Beauty
Oil and Pastel Paintings by Judy Richardson

“Beauty is something that can be experienced no matter where we are or what we are doing. The light shining through a leaf, the steam rolling off of your cup of coffee, the glint of the sun on a child’s hair can all be things of beauty. As an artist I am always looking for moments of beauty. When I look with my “artist eyes”, I see the world differently. I see shapes of color and light that work together to make form. My pleasurable task then becomes interpreting these moments for the viewer.”
“The works in this show are a collection of images from our travels, blossoms from our yard and people we have encountered in our journey through life. My wish is for you enjoy viewing them as much as I have enjoyed their creation.”

New Works in Pastel by Clive R. Tyler

Clive Tyler, from Taos, New Mexico, has a passion for painting en plein air.  His pastel paintings, rich with light and color, are created in a classical oil painting style, capturing the heart of the western landscape. An ‘environment’ painter, Clive paints outdoors as much as possible, immersing himself in his locales, re-creating the experience of place.

His larger studio work is based on his plein-air painting experiences; Tyler often paints in a series as an effective way to represent the environment.

Winning numerous awards. Tyler’s paintings were recently published in the book, “Landscapes: 89 Painters’ Perspectives”. He exhibits his work in several museum exhibitions including the Buffalo Bill Cody Western Museum in WY and the C.M. Russel Museum in MT.
