Tumalo Art Gallery’s June show “Stretching Our Vision”, features photographs by Bruce Jackson and paintings by Alisa Huntley and opens June 7 from 5-9pm during the First Friday Gallery Walk.
For this show Bruce Jackson is unveiling three new limited edition photographs revealing blazing fall and spring colors with a poets eye. He says, “my artwork has always been about beauty, and simplicity. There is so much beauty in Nature, my goal is simply to see, and most importantly feel, the beauty before me, then capture it’s essence on film”.
Alisa Huntley focuses primarily on the luminous, meditative qualities of water. She explores the reflections, abstractions, organic shapes and movement of the lakes and rivers in the high desert. Loose, colorful strokes of paint, drips, an expanded format and the reflective qualities of the aluminum and copper base she paints on create the feeling of a rushing river or peaceful high lake. An emphasis on the emotional feeling of a place transports the viewer to Alisa’s watery world.
