The April art show at the Sunriver Area Library features Sunriver resident and artist Helen Brown. She will show a selection of her Lewis & Clark watercolor series. For over a year, Helen has been focusing on the 1803-06 expedition; what they might have seen along their way from Missouri to Oregon and back.
“I love the region west of the Continental Divide, between Great Falls, Montana and Astoria, Oregon, so most of my landscapes are from that area. I love working in this series because, besides being a big fan of the Corps of Discovery, I can choose most any subject to paint: landscapes, flowers, portraits or still life!”
At this show, you will see portraits she painted from sculpture, plants that Lewis & Clark first noted for science and even Seaman, the captain’s dog. An exhibition of her entire Lewis & Clark series will go on display at the Oregon Historical Society in Portland, September 2017 through January 2018.
All are welcome to the reception for this exhibit at the Sunriver library on Friday, April 14, 3-4:30pm. Helen will give a short talk at 3:30pm. Sponsored by the Sunriver Area Friends of
