Karin Clarke Gallery is proud to present a Spring Group Show which features selected works by gallery artists Erik Sandgren, Tallmadge Doyle, Robert Schelgel, Adam Grosowsky, Humberto Gonzalez, and Craig Spilman. This exhibit will be on view from April 5 - 29.
Erik Sandgren, a professor of Fine Arts and Humanities at Grays Harbor College, is best known for his paintings and prints of the Pacific Northwest. We will focus on recent acrylic-on-panel boat and harbor scenes.
Eugene printmaker Tallmadge Doyle, is widely admired for her lush, nature-inspired etchings. A master of aquatint, a print technique that creates a rich, watercolor-like surface. Doyle’s work explores the interconnectedness of the natural world, with emphasis on botanical imagery. Recent and older works will be shown.
Banks, Oregon, artist Robert Schlegel, known for oil and acrylic paintings of barns in the landscape and industrial scenes, explores the tension that exists between the representational and abstract. In this exhibit, he will show a number of new, small-scale, mixed-media works.
Adam Grosowsky, a long-time member of the art faculty at Lane Community College, is best known for his large-scale, high-contrast work. Originally trained as a printmaker, Grosowsky now works exclusively on dramatic oil paintings, often portraits of women, and occasionally landscapes.
Portland based artist, Humberto Gonzalez, is well known for his vibrant, plein-air watercolors that capture the variety, color and lushness of the Oregon landscape. We will be showing a number of his recent, full-sheet paintings.
Craig Spilman retired in 2002 from Lane Community College, where he taught drawing, paintings and printmaking for over 30 years. Prior to that, he was an instructor at Maude Kerns Art Center, and has shown extensively throughout Oregon and in several international exhibits. The watercolors selected for this show capture both the subtleties and drama of cloud formations and the softness of Oregon’s winter landscape.
This group show will be celebrated during the First Friday Art Walk on April 7, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
