Rites Of Spring ...

Rites of Spring
Elysium Welcomes PAN

March 11 – May 2, 2010
Opening reception 3/11, 5:00 – 8:00pm
Portland Millwork Gallery
29600 SW Seely Ave., Wilsonville, Oregon 97070

The harbingers of spring are cropping up all around us, with printmaking techniques being as abundant and varied as new leaves. How better to celebrate the change of the seasons than by sampling the waters from the underground stream of printmaking?

Four premiere artists from Print Arts Northwest|PAN, one of the region's longest running arts organizations, have been invited to exhibit with three outstanding printmakers from Elysium Artists, an advocacy organization for professional artists, based in Wilsonville, Oregon.

Considered by many to be an arcane branch of the fine arts, Rites of Spring offers a range of printmaking media for the connoisseur and a lively introduction to the variety of printmaking disciplines for the neophyte.

Renowned Elysium Artists members Katy McFadden, Joan Carlson, and Palmarin Merges will be joined by Leslie Cheney-Parr, Natalya Balnova, Mary Farrell, and Gordon Sherman from PAN. These seven outstanding artists will be exhibiting the range of printmaking media, from collographs to etchings and monoprints.

A printmaking demonstration by Barbara Mason, Director of Print Arts Northwest, will be presented during the opening reception.

The public is invited and the event is free. Wine and refreshments will be served. All ages welcome.
