46 paintings done over a 35 year period of time by Michael Gibbons plus 24 paintings of similar interest of the area landscape and central Oregon coast.
“Yaquina” is an exhibit of over 40 plein air paintings in oil, created over a 35 year period, from locations along 50 miles of the Yaquina watershed. It is a visual documentation of the health and vitality of the area and contributes to the awareness of the river’s environment for forest, marsh, game and fish. Through his skillful “artistic voice”, Michael has been dedicated to preserving a record of the Yaquina River and the goal is to foster discourse through appreciating the beauty of this natural treasure.
5 Giclee limited edition prints have been created (see images) and will be available for purchase . A select group of original oil paintings by Gibbons that are not a part of “Yaquina” will be available for purchase. This work is of the Northwest, and will be a one- time special price offering of art selected for this exhibit only.
Michael Gibbons will be present at the opening reception June 1, 2019 at the LaSells Stewart Center on the OSU campus and also at the Closing Reception July 12, 2019 and he invites all to come by to visit with him.
