Folk Tales Folk tales are one of the oldest art forms in the shared history of our human family. They are stories passed down through generations by word-of-mouth, songs played by the campfire, or simple images shared on a cave wall. They can sometimes be dark and scary, or lighthearted and fanciful. But they all share the common purpose of serving as a communal vehicle for people to understand the world and their place in it.
This exhibit showcases the stories that Portland artists Leslie Peterson, Jaclyn Evalds and I want to share with you. Through the mediums of oil and acrylic paint, we invite you to witness the tale of a winged child, relive a forgotten memory from a faded photograph, and become immersed in whimsical landscapes with curious women. Let us tell you a story.
Friday, June 6; 6-8pm.
Albina Press, 5012 SE Hawthorne Blvd
Meet the artists and enjoy wine and light snacks.
