Group show by Tumalo Art Co. Artists explores art outside the box

Shelli Walters starts with no preconceived notion of where the colors and patterns will take her on her mixed media creations for “Outside the Box”.

Taking this opportunity to embrace and explore new ideas, materials, and techniques, and to shake up their palette, perspective, approach or subject, Tumalo Art Co. artists are showing art that is Outside the Box during March. The show opens March 3, from 4-8pm during the First Friday Gallery Walk. 

Janice Druian, well-known for her plein air paintings of the desert and mountains, has been working on a series of interiors.

Oil painter Janice Druian has been moving into new territory painting interiors with a timeless patina, Marty Stewart is stretching for complete abstraction and David Kinker has painted statuary in an East coast cemetery. Dorothy Freudenberg’s ancient love symbols are vibrantly relevant to today.

David Kinker paints statues in a North eastern cemetary for his “Outside the Box” painting.

Each artist will explain in a statement attached to their art what their motivation and process was for painting “outside the box”. For an artist, stretching to try a medium or subject that they haven’t been working with helps them find new creative momentum.
Tumalo Art Co. is an artist run collective in the heart of the Old Mill District, open 7 days a week. www.tumaloartco.com; 541-385-9144.
