See the work of LCAC artist Beth Collins at this upcoming event!
The BIG & small event shows art from the BIG to the small.
Featuring paintings from a number of local Portland Artists, LCAC Artist Janelle Schneider of HeartVisions Studio will have some work from the Constellations series in this fun show. Opening Thursday November 12, 2015, on view through December 28 7-10PM
The Red E café on Killingsworth is the best kept secret in the Portland art scene. Primarily a coffee roaster but also a gorgeous gallery, with lots of natural and carefully planned lighting, HUGE walls and hip ambiance.
Usually only very large work looks good in the 12 foot high room.
This show is an opportunity to see some very large work with smaller more accessible pieces.
A variety of artists show their smaller stuff in context with some of their BIG ART.
All through December. BIG art, small art, loose art. Accessible, giftable and gettable art. Including cards and prints.
See some of your favorite artist in a completely new way. BIG & small brings together 13 artists’ largest and smallest work in this stunning Gallery.
November’s print is titled, “We Make Walls and Windows” This is a signed 8 x 12 inch giclee print on bright white high rag content archival paper, with a 1 inch border all around. (a $50 value + postage)

*I SEE YOU is a mashup between an exquisite corpse
and ekphrastic art.
Exquisite Corpse is a practice invented by the dadaists.
A writer or artist continues a work by a previous writer/
artist, without seeing the entirety of the original piece.
Ekphrastic Art is a work of art inspired by another work
of art in a different medium.
Gathering Crows invited six poets to write an exquisite
corpse, based on the theme, “I See You.” Each poet
was given the last sentence from the previous writer.
As the poet finished their segment, it was sent to one
of 6 invited artists to interpret.
Discardia is addressing my own internal conflicts with the contrariant imperatives of self image emerging in our culture as we promote and embrace social media.
My work incorporates discarded ephemera, but it’s how we Edit and Discard elements of ourselves that intrigue me. Social media platforms have created an internal catalyst to embellish and hyper-edit our daily personal interests and lives.
We are waiting for those the approbations of our contacts and their contacts.
We want to be touched by others, but there is no true physical touching involved. Aristotle wrote ….“touch is the sense common to all animal species”. We are not physically touched by the world we inhabit on social media. We are looking for the intellectual and emotional recognition, but I believe there is part of the sense, the most important sense—-touch, that is missing.
I draw with Discarded brushes and sticks. I draw on and incorporate Discarded maps, plastics and papers that once had a strong social significance. I draw on Duralar which doesn’t accept ink easily. These imperfect social landscapes embrace our imperfections…, those imperfections that I see as beautiful.

Theresa Weil is a professional mixed media artist with a career rooted in Oregon’s arts and culture for the last three decades of career. Create works in various traditional and commercial mediums such as graphic design, ceramics, drawing, oil, acrylic and reverse glass painting. These mediums are the foundation for current paper collage works. Create “assemblage art” that further explores paper collage and paper board in two/three dimensional sculptural work. Commissions created for clients reflect their surroundings, sensibilities and life.
Janelle Schneider is an artist and designer. With an extensive background in 3d digital painting for feature films, and a solid grounding of education and experience in fine art and design, she walks comfortably between traditional and digital approaches, methods, and techniques. A native of the Pacific Northwest, she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Pacific Northwest College of Art.
“I make art because the creating connects me to something greater. I believe that art has the power to point us back to our place within the web of life, to help us change our story, and thus our actions in the world.
My work in acrylics, and mixed media offer thought threads, idea seeds, visual symbolism for a new story, reconnecting through art to understanding our place within the biosphere of Nature and that which truly sustains us.”
Whether you are looking for a commissioned painting on canvas, a print and web friendly logo design / identity package, a new website, or 3d textures for creatures and characters, Janelle’s experience with each translates into more effective visual communication for all.
Beth Collins states:
“I’m inspired by the beauty found in nature, particularly the landscapes of Oregon. I love the challenge of a blank canvas, in choosing the colors, lines and contrast to communicate emotion and mystery. I’m drawn to the zing of complementary colors, the power of light against dark, the weight of lines and their ability to lead the viewer through a painting. What is beyond the road, what lies just over the horizon? These all draw me in and keep me coming back to the studio. There is always a challenge awaiting, always a need to push further, to expand my skills and stretch against my comfort level.”
