Urbanscapes, Dusk till DawnMonday, April 30, 2007 by Steve Hill
Filed under: Exhibits and Events
This Thursday, May 3rd, both Judy and I will be in attendance at Yoshida's Fine Art Gallery in Portland, Oregon, for the opening of the invitational show “Urbanscapes, Dusk till Dawn.” I hope to see many of you at the gallery for this fantastic show of work from 9 artists dealing with subject matter from the twilight hours of cities from all over the world. You may even find yourself walking down some of those sidewalks, about to cross a neon bathed street, floating the canals, riding the rails or just staring wistfully at back-lit buildings and storefronts.

Visit their web site to preview the work, but better yet, stop by either at the opening or during the month of May to see this show first hand. I was especially pleased to make paintings on a theme that gave me some new challenges - I do live on an island, you know. It has also provided new directions to my more rural ‘regular' work, as well.

Pictured here is a piece titled “Rainy Night, Portland” painted last month. I also have pieces from Italy, England and Boston in this show, plus one of my personal favorites "The First and Last Chance Tavern" painted from Judy's class re-union in Ellensburg, WA last summer.

It's a joy to exhibit and work alongside so many talented artists especially with a gallery that really makes interesting things happen! A lot of thought goes into planning and coordinating shows like this (especially by the gallery) and even more preparation and work time by participating artists who could just sit back and say “New Works by Blah Blah”. This show has substance WAY beyond the mundane. Come see for yourselves!
