First Thursday (August 6) Pearl Design Center
Tonight I went to Eric Bowman's First Thursday at the Pearl Design Center. The show was installed in an unfinished commercial showroom. Eric's work looked so cool on those walls! His work is reminiscent of the California Impressionists..but the scenery is 100% Oregon. I also got to see Mandy Main and Scott Gellatly in this show (they were in different "rooms"). Everything was reliant on existing light..(no fixed light fixtures in any of the spaces). It made it interesting..to buzz around to see the art before the light of the day completely faded. I'll see Eric next in Hood River when we both participate in the Columbia Art Gallery Annual Plein Air Competition.
