The Science Show is coming! Every other year, we've featured art for the love of Science. This year, we're blending it with our Summer Sea Show and voila, you have Science and the Sea. Fresh work is landing now, the installation will be growing until Mid May. Check Events for details.
Kindra Crick brought some fresh works from a series based on rain for a project she was affiliated with in Portland. These pieces reflect the glacier loss of Mt. Hood and each work contains the topographical map of the region with the encaustic additions. The topo map shows the decrease of glacier in a 90 year period and her work is an artistic reaction resulting in a thought provoking amalgam of science and expression.
The Serigraphs of Michael Guerriero are enjoyed year round in the gallery though his paintings are fewer and more precious. This recent oil painting is among Michael's offerings for the Science Show. An intense statement on ecology is a common theme throughout Michael's works in addition to contemplative visions of the earth, sky, and space.
The Sea in Science
New, smart, animals lurk in the area of Marine Biology as illustrated by Sissy Rose. Surprisingly, not only were the Mercats around in the era of the dinosaur, swam with the early divers, but also have now been found in space. Come see the amazing collection of Mercat collages, a great pictorial education of the rare animal.
Meteorology And Geology
Nobody loves a rain at the beach except maybe this stylized jewelry piece on a sunny day. Spires of Marcasite make diagonal rainfall within the Plume Agate glowing within a Copper and Fine Silver 'cloud'. Sterling Silver cascades below ending in Red and White Plume Agate rain drops. Oregon sourced stones will be featured in the upcoming show expressed in some intriguing science-y settings. Check out New Jewelry for the scoop.
Thunder will follow
We recently had the opportunity to dig Thunder Eggs (the Oregon State Stone) in Central Oregon. After the birth of these silicates making gorgeous stripy patterns within 'lava-ash bubbles', the gemstone of the Thunder Egg Agate is presented in hues of blues, reds, oranges, yellows, pinks, and clear from the region we mined. This month these stones will be polished in house and set into jewelry for your entertainment and enjoyment.
Flights of Fancy
New to the Ozone are upcycled earrings that will give your ears wings. We have found feather earrings, earrings made from vintage buttons, upcycled glass, and even coffee sleeves! These colorful ornaments are will only set you back $20-30 so your $$$ resources stay in your purse. Among my favorites are the earrings made of fishing lures, just perfect for our bay side setting.
