Steven Beatty and Laurel Kurtz
Clark College's Archer Gallery presents Flotsam & Jetsam and Jetties & Gyres
by Steven Beatty and Laurel Kurtz. "Referencing earthworks from the 70's as well as the mass quantities of plastics trapped in the North Pacific Gyre, the artists create a space filled with bottle caps accessible only by a single point of entry to the viewers. Bright colored caps and lids are used to market products meant to be disposable, but made to last well beyond the life of the product. These vibrant colors now take on a new message, marking the accumulation of litter in the United States."
Opening reception • 4-6pm • November 10
• 1933 Fort Vancouver Way, Vancouver, WA
Marc Peter Keane, "SHINSO: Where Forest Meets Field"
The Japanese Garden presents the Bontei Tray Gardens of Marc Peter Keane for the winter installation of its Art in the Garden Series. The exhibition features "handcrafted wood and stone tray gardens by one of the world's leading experts on Japanese gardens. The word bontei
is an old term, not found in most modern dictionaries, but it suits Keane's new creations perfectly, as they begin within that tradition but broaden the scope to include new materials and philosophies the way modern gardens do."
Note: November 11 is free admission day
at the garden.
