New Works by Paul Alan Bennett will be in the forefront at Tumalo Art Co. opening November 6, from 4-8pm during the First Friday Gallery Walk.
Known for his “knit” style using gouache paint, Paul Alan Bennett works in a number of different styles and media. “I have always thought of my paintings as my inventions. As such, it doesn’t matter what style or materials I work with as long as it has that spark of the creative spirit about it. My working process is one of discovery and play, similar to solving a crossword puzzle, but different in that there are many ‘right’ answers.” Paul’s paintings have won numerous local and national awards, he has been featured on Oregon Art Beat, is a painter of murals and teaches art at COCC, as well as doing innovative art projects with both adults and school children.
Tumalo Art Co. is an artist-run gallery in the heart of the Old Mill District, open 7 days a week. www.tumaloartco.com; 541-385-9144.
