CORVALLIS ARTS WALK • Thursday, January 17th, 2019

Immersed in Winter as we are, hints of Spring await. Fred Amos shows floral paintings at his studio as a harbinger of sunnier weather, and alcohol ink artist Karen Wysopal bridges the seasonal gap with a new series based on her favorite color, purple. PopsArtStudio’s Matthew Nelson uses collage, painting and prints to examine internal dialogue in “Tales and Legends”. Julia Oldham installs “View of the Red Forest” at OSU’s Woodshop Projects in the basement of Fairbanks Hall, a “portrait of both the dilapidation and rebirth of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone”. Cyrano’s Bookbinding & Art Supplies, in contrast, is “Just Chill-in”!
Colorful or somber, Wintery or Spring-like you’ll find something that suits your fancy in this eclectic mix of 18 venues!

Reception: The Art of Being an Artist

The Art of Being an Artist shows work by Pete Goldlust and Kristy Kún, artists forging 2 different career paths. They have careers in common not in a straight line, both forged creative collaborations. After graduate school, Goldlust tried the traditional path of seeking gallery representation, but ended up in the field of public art. He discovered that the collaborative nature of public artwork gave him a lot of freedom. Kristy Kún came from a business background, importing wool, hosting workshops. Fellow artist Greg Wilbur invited Kún to Frogwood, an annual meeting of artists sharing ideas. This setting gave Kún a chance to work with others. Kim Long, Justin Lodge, Tara Robinson and Claire Elam exhibit in the CWG for their TAC’s Artist Accelerator program (AAP) Residency. The AAP is dedicated to the professional development of artists. They can use temporary studio space at TAC, attend lectures and critiques, participate in artist talks, partner with the CAW and exhibit.

Capacity (New work by Muriel Condon)

My work has utilized print, craft and the symbolism of objects to examine the interaction and distinction of food and fabric, poverty and divinity, domesticity and digestion. Both the aesthetics and content of my work have been informed by my childhood following the aftereffects of my family’s involvement in a controversial new age church, the Church Universal and Triumphant. Playing with the human body as a vessel of experience I explore memories of textures, tastes, beliefs, domestic altars, plates of food, and ephemeral touch.

Lives in The Balance

Displaying the continually growing “Lives In The Balance” about mass gun shootings in the US along with a selection of Trump inspired art as they equally make no sense. Oh yeah, greed. I keep forgetting about greed.

Greenwood Rioseco: Icelandic Threads

In Iceland I allowed my interior life to emerge as inspiration: unfolding into a new body of work, extending into the past, present & future, initiating an experience of artistic involution with the Icelandic landscape in its raw, primal, feminine self. The strength of the land & my sense of kinship with it changed my work. It is this ongoing revelation of connectedness, which I am exploring in this installation. The ancient Icelandic word for intuition is “innsæi,” but in Iceland it has multiple meanings. It can mean “the sea within” which is the borderless nature of our inner world, a constantly moving world of vision, feelings & imagination beyond words. It can mean “to see within” which means to know yourself & to know yourself well enough to be able to put yourself in other people’s shoes. And it can mean “to see from the inside out” which is to have a strong inner compass to navigate your way in our ever-changing world.

Purple Passion

This month I'll be showing a new series of paintings, all based on my favorite color, purple.


Majestic Theatre • 115 SW 2nd Street • 4pm - 8pm

Jessica Urey - HeadSpace

Imaginative people are said to have a “rich inner world”. Loosely defined, an inner world is a place existing in the human mind that is inhabited by an individual’s emotions, memories, fantasies, and ideas. To the being who creates and experiences this nebulous place, it is as vast and substantive as the physical world. A collection in paint, pastel, pencil, and monoprint, HeadSpace features multiple series which explore different aspects of this inner world. Landscape, abstraction, and the human figure appear side-by-side to capture some of the complexities within.

Julia Oldham's multimedia installation "View of the Red Forest" is a portrait of both the dilapidation and rebirth of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, combining large prints of windows looking out of abandoned buildings onto lush landscapes with video documentation of Oldham's visit to the zone. For this project Oldham is teaming up with Free Static, a Eugene-based improvisational sound duo blending modular synth and music concrete.

Kat Power

Adventure is an integral component of who I am. When I’m not adventuring, drawing is a way for me to re-connect with the beautiful places I’ve immersed myself in and enables me to find my flow. I first began drawing when I lived in the desert in southern Utah and noticed just how many intricate details make up the sandstone landscape there. I love studying the landscape as if I had a magnifying glass, using my pens to emphasize all of the small details I see in each feature of the scene. Come by Peak Sports to check out my artwork and say hi!

Clean Slate

Artists start, people start, communities start anew every day, every project, each time they make an effort to imagine what might be. This month's exhibit will explore that journey to begin right where we are, again. Making a new surface to start our next creative expressions; making a new effort to present ourselves as artists, as people, as citizens.

C.S.A. (Community Supported ART)!

Kick off the new year with a Plant Posse CSA box (Community Supported ART)--a monthly surprise subscription of seasonal produce-inspired jewelry & art! Over the last 20 years, Community Supported Agriculture boxes (CSA) have become a popular way for consumers to buy seasonal food directly from local farms. Our CSA is the first of its kind in Oregon, an innovative way to connect our Plant Posse artists to patrons based on the same agriculture model. This allows our artists to create an edition of seasonal produce/plant/fungi-inspired artwork, and then sell shares, so that buyers get fresh Plant Posse art monthly. It will feature local, mostly seasonal fruit, vegetables & fungi as well as other plants. Get a discount by buying an annual subscription or pay monthly. CSA's can include handmade jewelry (think turnips, beets, cherry earrings or necklaces), Eco-prints (printed locally on 100% recycled paper) featuring produce and puns, original paintings, needlepoint, stickers and more!

Tales and Legends

We live the stories we tell ourselves. Our fables, tall tales, and legends explain the world around and within ourselves. They are the symbols that hold our meaning. The cleanest way to understand ourselves is to understand our stories. This new series of paintings, prints and collages by Matthew Nelson discloses part of this internal dialogue in visual media. Come find your story, too!


Studio 2 o 4 - Crees Building • 230 SW 3rd Street, Suite 204 • 4pm - 8pm

Antler Family

The Antler Family is a numbered, ongoing series of small paintings by artist and musician Jessica Billey. In 2002, Billey began creating this series of antler-clad portraits while traveling on a tour bus through the desert Southwest. The Antler Family made its debut at the Knitting Factory in Los Angeles, and has been growing ever since. Currently there are over 400 Antler Family members on 3 different continents in over a dozen countries. Billey will also be showing recent drawings and stories from her ongoing portrait project of People Who Live Alone. New portraits of people from Oregon and Indiana will be shared along with previously presented portraits of people from New Mexico, California, and Washington.
