"Orville makes exquisitely detailed, photo-like monotypes of Pacific Northwest landscapes, with wide skies, windblown trees, and morphing masses of clouds.
They convey a sense of space, movement, and the interplay of ephemeral
moments and geological time". -The Stranger, 2019
Join us for an artist talk with Master Artist Linley Logan. Much of Linley Logan's work is inspired by oral tradition which is a core fundamental foundation of his native cultural identity. His home is the Tonawanda Seneca Nation. He believes story is life creatively shared through artistic expressive language and is the best story to interpret. Linley will talk about his printmaking work and his process. FREE and open to the public.
This newest body of work, Wildness Lost, takes a new turn to connect with environmental themes through the use of mythical figures. These figures confront the realities of encroaching technology and diminishing wilderness while continuing the search for utopian ideals and indulging in desire as a form of resistance.
