exhibit set to open
A show of paintings, prints and drawings by Corvallis artist Nelson Sandgren opens Tuesday and runs through Feb. 11 at the Karin Clarke Gallery, 760 Willamette St.
Born in Canada, Sandgren studied art at the Chicago Institute of Design and then at the University of Oregon, where he received his degree in 1947. He is a retired professor of art at Oregon State University, where he taught from 1948 to 1987.
Sandgren's work is in such collections as the Portland Art Museum, the Coos Bay Art Museum, the Hallie Ford Museum and at Salishan Lodge in Oregon, as well as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris.
A reception will be held at the gallery from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Regular gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
opens Friday at DIVA
``Landscapes of Oregon and Tropical Australia,'' a show of oil and acrylic paintings by Robin Hostick, will open with a reception at 5:30 p.m. Friday in the Maude Kerns Downtown Gallery at DIVA, 110 W. Broadway.
A landscape architect and naturalist, Hostick tries in his work to convey the intangible aspects of nature, to capture the essence of motion, temperature and mood of a particular place.
"I strive to be true to the place first and foremost, and to anchor the spirit of each place in an image to share with others,' he says.
The show continues through Feb. 24. Regular hours at DIVA are noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
