Fine art exhibit by Alice Van Leunen featuring woven paper images of Oregon wine labels.
Exhibit thru June 5 at Pronghorn Clubhouse, 65600 Pronghorn Club Dr.
Van Leunen’s Wine Country Quilt Series continues ongoing mixed-media paper artworks based on traditional Log Cabin quilt designs. The paper is woven in a “waffle weave” pattern that mimics the pieced-fabric Log Cabin designs.
The current Wine Country Series combines the artist’s unique techniques with her passion for Oregon wine. These artworks celebrate Oregon’s place as one of the world’s leading wine-producing regions, with Log Cabin blocks composed of collaged labels from Oregon wineries. Many Oregon vintners furnished labels for the art with David Fish at Fox Farm Vineyards offering the labels that inspired this project.
The artist’s 30+year career includes teaching textile arts at Portland State University and her art appears in numerous collections including General Motors, Calvin Klein, and large-scale collaborative commissions such as the High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. In 1993, the Oregon Arts Commission awarded Van Leunen an Individual Artist Fellowship for her unique imagery.
