"Living With Art" August 7 - 28, 2016

The Klamath Art Association and Gallery proudly showcases the imaginative paintings of Liz Garcia and the remarkable woodworking of Elbert Henderson throughout the month of August. A public reception will be held for the duo on Sunday, August 7th from 12 PM to 4 PM. The show will run through Sunday, August 28th.

Liz Garcia began painting at age three and has spent her life living with art.  She studied art through college and later worked in graphic arts and publicity.  “Looking at the world through the eyes of an artist, opens possibilities to appreciate the beauty that is everywhere.”  Garcia has shown her work throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Northern California and the Pacific Northwest, particularly Klamath Falls. The paintings Garcia is exhibiting at the Gallery will emphasize a life well-lived, experiencing travel, imagination, and a feeling of joy in the color and light of life.

Elbert Henderson was introduced to Woodturning when a fifth-grade classmate was given a toy lathe by his father.  The two boys played with that tiny, but functional toy, in the basement for hours.  “Making square wood round and creating any shape you could envision was fascinating... I was hooked immediately!”  While in high school woodshop, his father picked up an old used wood lathe for him and he turned a little walnut bowl for his mom. Henderson toured the 2000 Utah Woodturning Symposium, and the Ray Allen Memorial Exhibition. Because Allen pioneered the Southwest style of segmented vessel turning, a fairly large portion of Elbert's work has transitioned into a segmented style. “I like to work with species indigenous to Oregon and plan to explore the possibilities of our local woods.” 

Don’t miss this very exceptional show!
