Reception honoring artists Emily Mallory, Janet Rothermel and the late Clarice Keegan
August 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Maple Valley Public Arts Commission invites you to attend an Artists’ Reception! View the artwork and meet the artists who have their work on display in the Lake Wilderness Lodge Art Exhibition Program:
Janet Rothermel’s studio is located in the historic Ford Building in southeast Portland. She uses landscapes and recurring road themes in her compositions to symbolize routes to a larger world where the details of her life are put into their “proper place.”
Born in Oregon and raised in northern California, Emily Mallory was first introduced to quilling and origami as a teenager. Nature is the inspiration for her art. Her work is realistic but slightly whimsical. Each of her finished pieces can have anywhere from 50 to over 1,000 individual pieces of paper used depending on the design.
Clarice Keegan worked with lines. Her quest was to express the lines that she saw and tie them into the emotions of others who see them. Keegan often used mathematical principals, tools, opaque watercolors, and liquid acrylic paints to shape her vision. Although Clarice passed away in November 2018, her daughter, Shanti, continues to share her mother’s artwork.
Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you on Thursday, August 22 at 6:30 pm!
