Public reception scheduled for Northwest artists
RICHLAND - A public reception is scheduled for Sunday, Feb.
8, at Richland's Allied Arts Gallery to honor three Pacific Northwest artists
whose artwork will be on display throughout the month of February.
The 1 to 3 p.m. reception will give art lovers the
opportunity to meet artists Judith Loomis of Richland, Mary Dryburgh of
Richland and Greg Wilbur of Portland, Ore. All three artists will have their
work on display at the Richland gallery from Feb. 3 to Feb. 27.
Loomis' mixed media works represent the nuclear age of
Hanford, showing her feelings about Hanford from her artistic viewpoint.
Dryburgh's artwork utilizes totemic images that come from
the darkest recesses of consciousness. Her drawings are populated with running
dogs and inky forests, as well as black crows.
Wilbur, an internationally known artist from Portland, will
present his metal works at the gallery. Allied Arts Gallery officials say
Wilbur's elegant simplicity of his recent Asian-inspired sculptures brings a
harmony to the February show to balance the mood of darkness implied in both
the works of Loomis and Dryburgh.
The Richland gallery is located at the entrance of Howard
Amon Park in Richland (89 Lee Blvd.).
