Main Gallery
Gillian Freney paints on frosted Mylar with oils then uses subtractive techniques to create her art, usually of nests & bramble. She is also experimenting with a similar method to produce color panels on gessoed surfaces.

Karen Croner (right) is a mixed media sculptor working with wire, papier-mâché, paper clay, fabric, plaster, and acrylic paints. Her new pieces are inspired by iconic characters in favorite Grimm’s fairy tales.

Feature Area
Mari Livie works with fiber and thread. She will be presenting two series. In “Surface” the pieces are close ups of living surfaces. The other series involves stitching onto photographic images.

Alison Ericksen is a sculptor working with steel wire and ceramic. She uses the human form to explore the language of gesture, interaction and rhythm.

Art Opening @ Antler Gallery & Store
Apr 24 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm


On April 24th Antler Gallery will open a new two-person show featuring Portland artists Josh Keyes and Neil M. Perry.

The show, entitled “Entwined”, features two new series of paintings.

“The Forest” by Josh Keyes is the first public exhibition of his work since his pieces evolved to feature backgrounds rendered in full, as opposed to the cleft landscape pedestals on which his animal characters used to be displayed.

The series focuses on moments and scenes stumbled upon by the viewer as they explore a world reclaimed.

“New Synthesis” by Neil M. Perry utilizes the character traits different cultures bestow upon animals and color psychology via snake patterns to explore the nature of different human relationships.

When two ideas, or in this case personalities, are combined to become some different entity the result is a new synthesis.

The opening reception will begin at 6:00pm on, April 24th, as part of the Alberta Street  Last Thursday art walk. Our good friends at Dogwood Distilling will be on hand to pour handcrafted cocktails, we look forward to seeing you there.
