Here Be Art!

A Celebration of Hillsboro Arts
October 6 – November 16, 2015

Medieval cartographers used the images of monsters, sea serpents, or other mythological creatures to mark uncharted territories on maps for would-be explorers. The phrase hic sunt dracones, or “here be dragons”, has come to mean an unexplored place with possible danger. Here Be Art! turns a positive light on the unknown, inviting would-be explorers to discover a world of local creativity and fine arts in the Walters gallery.  This exhibit unveils an exciting geography of Hillsboro artists and projects, emphasizing the idea that art is happening all around us–often in unexpected forms. The artwork for this exhibit is highlighted by Artosaur, a mythical symbol which draws attention and visibility to the many artists at work in our community. The larger-than-life robotic dinosaur which serves as an advocate for the arts, is a public art project aimed at bringing celebration and visibility to the local creativity of Hillsboro. Patrons can to meet Artosaur at the First Tuesday; exhibit openings, along with the fascinating local artists who live and work among us. Discover the unexpected!

I’m participating again in the Washington County Open Studio Tour. If you have been wondering what this gelli printing I’m always mentioning is, you can come see how it works. You might even make a print yourself.

I’ll be at the VisualsSpeak headquarters since as you can see in the photo, there is no room for extra people in my studio. Come visit at 6443 NE Brighton St Hillsboro, OR 97124. There are lots of other wonderful artists to visit in my area, so plan on seeing several of them. You can see sneak previews of each artists work and find directions and maps on the tour website. http://www.washcoart.org
