Ann DiSalvo recently spent a week on the Oregon coast creating plein air paintings which are featured this month along with The Weekly Press Revisited, digital prints by Bruce Bayard.

The act of painting outdoors, en plein air, has been a tradition for centuries. Ann battled the challenges presented by the elements of wind and sun, as well as curious onlookers who would not normally be present in a studio situation.

Her reading of the book about composition by Arthur Wesley Dow reinforced her personal concepts and understanding of composition; where to place elements to create visual harmony, color, and contrast.

These works will be part of a larger exhibition at the Rogue Valley Manor in May of 2018. Come take a sneak preview.

Bruce has been studying the series he completed in 2010, finding new insights into how his previous work informs new video explorations. The series, comprised of 1000 still images became the turning point in his career, establishing his interest into time-based art. The current exhibition consisted of original size prints and a new larger format.
