Portland Area Art Events

Opening Reception is Thursday, April 26, 6-9 pm

Brad McLemore’s ceramic sculptures are made of stoneware and
porcelain clays imbued with ash and atmospheric deposit from firing
in wood fueled kilns. His work seems a fragment of a greater, discarded
system—a relic of industry and discovery. 

Reed Clarke is a oil painter who concentrates on faces and figures using
color, line, volume, value. He portrays people in order to show their unique
presence, but also to somehow allude to the underlying mystery of what it
means to be human.

Ralph Davis is a painter who is interested in the combination of the hard-edged
otherworldly formality of the geometric figure with the less formal organic
soft-edges of the natural world.  The geometric constructions often convey
sense of discovery, of being in the presence of something significant.
