Corvallis Arts Walk, June 21

June’s art walk looks like it is shaping up to be especially strong. I’m excited (clearly) to welcome recent Portland State University MFA graduate Shawn Creeden to town for his CEI Artworks exhibit, and perhaps equally so to see the Reynold’s Gallery’s first exhibition, Convergence: process + identity, granted a second month of display. Pretty much everything looks great, but the Around Oregon Annual at The Arts Center, and the Senioritis exhibit and after-party at Rhizosphere Studios have really caught my eye.

Hmm… what am I forgetting? Oh, that’s right: A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO BRUCE BURRIS, WHO WAS RECENTLY ANNOUNCED AS A 2018 HALLIE FORD FELLOW! It’s tremendously well-deserved, and just more proof as to why we’re so incredibly lucky to have Bruce here in our community. They couldn’t have chosen a better artist or human being.

If you’re out and about this CAW (and you should be), give him an awkward high five!
