Village Gallery News

Rug Factory
Kasadasi Rug Factory, by Diane Phinney

The Village Gallery of Arts June 2008 group show will feature artist Diane Pinney. Diane rekindled her interest in and passion for art after retiring from a career in finance and business administration and a move to Portland in 1999. Her favorite media are colored pencil, mixed media, acrylic and watercolor. Diane feels that her creativity is an expression of the Spirit within her. Painting, for her, is an act of worship and she is mindful of that reality whenever she picks up a brush or a pencil.

The all media show opens June 3rd through July 5th. We are open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm, Sunday 12 to 4.

Featured classes in June include:

Mosaic Stepping Stone: using ceramic, china and tiles, you will create a functioning piece of garden art. Learn about how to create mosaic for the outdoors to withstand weather. (Ages 15 and up)

Make a Concrete Leaf: The process of casting with cement is explored with a demonstration and hands-on learning. You will have the opportunity to create at least two concrete leaves.

Three-Day Watercolor Workshop: instructor Gene Gill is dedicated to concept and design. His impressionistic paintings have an illustrative approach. This workshop guides you into a structured creative process that encourages successful projects for artists.

The Village Gallery of Arts is a non-profit community gallery in operation over 40 years. It is located at 12505 NW Cornell Road (Cornell and Saltzman, behind Walgreen’s, next to Cedar Mill Community Library). Call for more information at (503) 644-8001 or visit them on the web at villagegalleryarts.org
