One of our Art Walk artists, Michael Gibbons, is being featured in a special three-man show beginning April 30 at Oregon State University. ”THE INESCAPABLE NATURE: THREE OREGON PAINTERS” also features work by Oregon artists William Shumway and Mike Rangner.
This exhibit features a collection of oil and acrylic works by painters Michael Gibbons, Toledo, William Shumway, Corvallis, and Mike Rangner, Corvallis that give evidence to the contemplative and inspired combination the artist’s nature and Oregon’s nature can produce. Each artist will have a substantial number of paintings on display for the viewer to see regarding the Northwest and the artist’s exploration of same.
