Corvallis was introduced to Mizraím Cárdenas at Pegasus Gallery with a series of prints on Mexican history in commemoration of the Mexican bi-centennial. At The Arts Center, Cárdenas shows a wider variety of subject matter, where we see tendencies to surrealism, a love of nature and a concern about the state of environment.

 

The Art of Plankton: Form Follows Function, The Arts Center, 700 NW Madison Ave., Corvallis.  July 19 – August 28.

The resulting collection of artwork is a testament to the creativity that abounds in the fields of art and science, and how explorations each field can elevate the other.
