The Arts Council of Lake Oswego (ACLO) invites the public to the February exhibition, Art As Refuge, inspired by the themes explored in the 2018 LO Reads selection, Good Morning Midnight, by Lily Brooks-Dalton.
This exhibition aims to start a conversation around the idea articulated through Brooks-Dalton’s prose. The author describes her novel, in part, as focusing “on the interplay and overlap of connection and isolation.” Out of the number of artists that applied, a jury of community members, artists, art historians, and curators chose 16, all from the Portland area, including 2 from Lake Oswego. The exhibit will feature all types of media including photography, sculpture, paintings, collage, drawings, and ceramic wall hangings.
- First Friday Opening reception: Friday, February 2 from 5 to 7 pm. Stop by the gallery, meet the artists, view the work, and enjoy some light refreshments.
- Lunch and Learn: Friday, February 16 from 12 to 1 pm. This will be an informal gathering with one of the exhibition artists doing a demonstration for participants and a talk about their work. Attendees are encouraged to bring a bag lunch and ACLO will supply beverages.
- Artist Round Table presentation: Friday, February 23 from 6 to 8 pm. A “PechaKucha” style presentation – 20 slides shown for 20 seconds with a rapid-fire talk from the artist to accompany the slides.
