Oregon artists featured in new exhibit, ‘Source,’ at OSU’s Little Gallery

01/12/2017

CORVALLIS, Ore. – “Source,” an exhibit featuring work from Oregon artists Liisa Rahkonen of Lincoln City, Sandra Roumagoux of Newport and Eliza Murphy of Eugene, will be on display in the Little Gallery at Oregon State University Jan. 9 through Feb. 17.

A reception to celebrate the exhibit’s opening will be held from 3:30-5 p.m. Jan. 19 at the gallery in 210 Kidder Hall, 2000 S.W. Campus Way, Corvallis. The artists will be on hand and the public is welcome to attend. 

The exhibit includes paintings, glazed stoneware sculptures and small sculptural box shrines. All three artists share a similar sensibility: a close association with nature and a keen protective instinct for the environment and wildlife.

Roumagoux’s work is informed by the human disregard for the natural world. Rahkonen’s clay sculptures feature birds and animals inspired by the instinct that all life is derived from one source. Murphy’s box shrines are an homage to all the little creatures encountered in everyday existence – an offering to lost voices.

The Little Gallery is open 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
