  • Rowboat Opening Reception

    • Who: Open to the public
    • What: Join us, along with Rowboat Gallery, for an opening reception in celebration of our newest exhibit featuring paintings by Liisa Rahkonen and ceramic sculpture by Patrick Horsley.
      Portland artist Patrick Horsley is widely recognized in the ceramics world both for his technical mastery with clay and glazes, and for the unique sculptural vision he brings to his work. His stunningly glazed pieces, while referencing functional platters, teapots, or vessels, invoke an almost architectural sense of place and purpose.

      Pat Horsley’s work has been represented in numerous national and international invitational exhibitions, one-person shows, and juried competitions, and is included in collections of the Seattle Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Craft, Columbus School of Art and Design, Louisiana-Pacific Corporation, and the University of Utah. Awards include the prestigious National Endowment for the Arts Grant. He has influenced a generation of Northwest Potters, having taught at Marylhurst College, Portland Art Museum School, Pacific Northwest College of Art, and Portland Community College.

      Liisa Rahkonen has been working as a professional artist since the early 1970s. With many regional and national shows and awards to her credit, she continues to explore the creative process from her studio overlooking the Salmon River estuary, just north of Lincoln City. She has shown at Rowboat Gallery since its opening in 2008.

      Rahkonen has completed a number of new bird images for this show, painted with mixed media on heavy paper and canvas. She will also be showing a selection of her iconic stoneware “Spirit Animals.” Regardless of her medium, a profound sense of wonder pervades her work. As she states, “I am in awe of birds. It’s not just the variety of colors, silhouettes and feather patterns that engage me as an artist, but something illusive about them compels me to try and capture a sense of the bird’s presence and character. When they tilt their heads as if listening to something mysterious I can only aspire to hear but cannot, like the sound of a loon calling, or the raspy voice of the Great Blue Heron, this instantly transports me from my world into theirs.”

      The opening reception begins at 4:30 pm where the artists will speak about their work and process. It will then continue at Rowboat Gallery from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The show will run through December 31st.
