Two Year Anniversary at Pacific University

by Jamie Bennett 

Our most recent gallery was an exploration of various mark making techniques. To the left is one of my finished pieces and below is Nia standing next to one of her's with baby Llew.

We used some spray paint, paint pens, stencils and other assorted materials on faux wood panels. Nia made some really beautiful pin up ladies and I was really proud of the end result. All around this was a lot of fun and what began as an exploration ultimately has legs for future galleries on larger format pieces. I would really like to create larger pieces using this technique, especially now that we got the process down.

The gallery is currently at Pacific University in downtown Eugene, Ore. It was a part of the November 7, 2014 ArtWalk. Despite the fact that we were trying to get out in front of this gallery's deadline it all came down to the wire. I think there was a bit of a learning curve, in that we were using unconventional materials. Nailing down the right glue was essential. We also spent time figuring out the best way to dry and store these. All in all, I am very happy with what he have hanging right now. I love this process and I am going to continue to use it. The results photograph very well. 

We also created the piece to the right as a special thank you to Pacific University for hosting our galleries for the past two years.
