GALLERY NEWS & UPDATES: OCTOBER • 2017
EARTH and SKY
OPENING NOV 11
Save the date, Nov 11th, for the OPENING RECEPTION for Jay Ylvisaker and Liisa Rahkonen's new exhibit at Rowboat Gallery.
Liisa will be showing primarily works on paper, focusing on the power, mystery, and quite dignity of the birds that inhabit our coastal wetlands and woods.
Jay, whose finely-crafted wood structures have intrigued gallery visitors for the last two years, has continued to explore the intersection of architecture, sculpture, and sacred spaces in a new body of work created specifically for this show.
John R Stahl
September 9 ~ October 30
John R Stahl's work encompasses nearly every traditional medium and technique, and the creative discipline and passion that animated his long career is amply reflected in this exhibit.
"The diversity in my art can be found in the Northwest landscape with its generous basic elements and its unparallel variety of terrain which give such great distinction to shapes through light, shadow and color."
Janet Stahl has graciously loaned a number of never before exhibited pieces from the Stahl personal collection for this show. Most of the work is for sale, with a portion of proceeds going to complete publication of a book about John and his work to be published in association with the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in Salem.
Shape and Surface
New Ceramic Work
Long-time Portland ceramic artist Patrick Horsley is now at Rowboat. Initially, we are showing sixteen new sculptural works, including Three-Piece Wall Tile (above), which was part of the John Stahl Memorial Fund benefit exhibit at our opening on September 9th.
Also included are several large platters and plates, lidded jars, tall bottles, and "canoe" shaped vessels - all exquisitely decorated with Horsley's iconic glazes.
