Presents the work of Pat Clark, Joren Traveller and Barbara Slater thru January 14, 2015. Clark, the founder of Atelier 6000, creates work to transform the powerful and often chaotic forces of nature into an ordered, functional design she calls “mapping,” through the techniques of relief printing, embossment, chine collé, mixed media and drawing. Traveller’s work crosses many mediums (sculpture, pastels, oils, ceramics) and draws upon her background as an equestrian, her time at the Otis Art Institute, life in Central Oregon and an education in microbiology and animal science. Slater is well known for the energy, spirit, rich pigmentation and bold brushwork in her representations of animals, florals and landscapes. www.highdesertartleague.com
