“Small Conversations” opens Nov. 9th
Siskiyou County artists, Cathy Valentine and Eloise Larson collaborate in a new art show.
Everyone is invited to attend a 2nd Saturday art opening and reception on Saturday, November 9th from 5 to 7pm, at The Siskiyou Arts Museum in Dunsmuir. In this art show, Siskiyou County artists Cathy Valentine and Eloise Larson will collaborate on an exhibit consisting of 8”X8” works in various mediums depicting the essence of subtle communications between the artist and the surface of a work.
Standing in front of each manifestation, the nature of the artist’s marks will encourage the viewer to mingle their experiences with the literal and abstract language of each image. A small conversation may occur. The artists will display several small works hung in a unique creative way to enhance the intention of the exhibit, and their hope is to expose the possibilities of how we as individuals participate in small verbal and implied conversations with one another.
Cathy Valentine’s work is abstract in nature, with a sense of randomness. She says that abstraction allows her to create my own internal language, which she uses to explore within the work. She feels as though her work provokes memories and experiences of her past, and moves into her present life.
Eloise Larson says her experience of “life is art” moved her vision from outward looking to inward reflection, and her work from capturing the surface to responsive expression. She works figuratively as well as non-representationally in many media: painting, printmaking, photography and digital renditions.
Anne Johnson and Pauly Robinson will provide harp and flute music at the opening reception. “Small Conversations” is sponsored by “Shasta Publications - publisher of “The Property Guide,” and will continue in our Museum Space through 4pm on Saturday, December 28th.
The Siskiyou Arts Museum is a member & volunteer supported non-profit art gallery and gift shop, located in the heart of the downtown Dunsmuir Historic District at 5824 Dunsmuir Ave.
