Exhibit at Gallery 114

Posted on

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.

LCAC Artist Sally Cantrell Griffith

Posted on Updated on

Fine Art Photographer and LCAC member, Sally Cantrell Griffith, currently has a printed photo on aluminum in the Roche Bobois furniture store in downtown Portland.  The Geezer Gallery represents Sally’s art for the store.  The business that printed the photo for Sally is using her work as advertisement for their printing. Take a look at the photo below. Sally captured this image at the Vigor Shipyards on Swan Island.  “They were welding together a new barge and you can see the joints and inspection comments in the photo.”
Sally lives in PDX but spends winters in Arizona and will be participating in Open Studios in her neighborhood in Arizona. If you happen to be traveling to Arizona in the near future and want to see more of her beautiful work, go to the LCAC Artist page for her contact information or you can visit her website.
