“The Art of Monte Shelton”
When you come to the CAG meeting Social Half-Hour (7:00 pm) from now on, bring your latest work of art to display. Weâ€™ll put them around the room. Then, weâ€™ll socialize and celebrate in their presence.
Portland artist Monte Shelton will give a presentation about her art with a question/answer session. For the month of September, Shelton’s paintings will be on display as part of the “It Happens in the Forest” show which opens September 2 in the Main Gallery of The Arts Center.
Forest Pond East, 2006 oil on canvas 48″ x 96″
Sheltonâ€™s images are a fusion of observation and imagination, the abstract and descriptive. She blends the tension between light and shadow, the paradox of fire and water, hot and cold, life and death. Expressive brush work represents energy spots, layering yellows and gold into languid blues and violets.
