Beach Retreat


Cindy Geffel, Judi Davis, Beth Collins, Marty Urman, and Sheila DeLaquil at Lincoln City Cabana overlooking the Pacific waves

Five LCAC artists enjoyed a beach weekend in Lincoln City in October. Graced with both rough and tumble weather and sweet ocean breezes, the group settled into the local cabana to learn new art techniques, create their own work, and get to know each other. It was the perfect weekend to explore ideas for the future of the group between beach walks and good food. The annual retreat is hosted by the LCAC.

Acrylic artist Cindy Geffel brought a boxful of paints and brushes and gave a demonstration of collage techniques. Marty Urman gave a brief talk about pastels and gave everyone an opportunity to push chalk around paper.

PhotoCamp PDX

LCAC artist Judi Davis worked with children at PhotoCamp PDX this summer. Their finished work was displayed at Blue Kangaroo Coffee Roasters in Sellwood in June and July. The week-long session instructed students on how to compose, capture, edit, print, and share their photos. The camp concluded with a Gallery Walk for family and friends to celebrate the talented photographers’ work.

Exhibit at Gallery 114

Sheila DeLaquil’s works, “Kokopelli” and “Submerged #4″ are featured at the Future Tellers exhibit at Gallery 114 through July 1, 2017. Artists tackle questions about the world of tomorrow: what will politics, science, technology, the human condition, and making art look like? Do artists foresee a world of fear or hope? Feel empowered or endangered? Artists respond to these questions in diverse media, telling their stories of the future.

“Hugs and Kisses” is a lighthearted take on love. It’s full of warm tones and makes me think of hugging and kissing my grandson.
“Hugs and Kisses” was created using acrylic paint and caran d’ache crayons on paper mounted on birch panel. a caption
