Please join the Josephy Center for Arts and Culture for the opening reception of “Dream Oregon,” an exciting new exhibit running from May 4th to June 18th. Doors open at 6:30 pm on Saturday, May 4th, and the event officially starts at 7 pm. Catering will be by the Wallowa Pop People Mark and Denise, the culinary duo behind Joseph’s gourmet ice pop stand. The sounds of local pianist Seth Kinzie and drummer Andy Steele’s new album, “When I was a Tree,” will be heard throughout the evening. Admission is free but donations are welcome.
“Dream Oregon” started with artist and curator Anna Vogel’s vision of a homegrown Oregon mythology, created through art. She invited several artists to join her with their own take on the theme: Jennifer Klimsza, Talia Jean Gavin, Kelly Riggle, Kolle Riggs, and Carrie Chupp. Through photography, painting, sculpture and illustration, they bring us on a tour of Oregon from the tiniest pebble to the tallest mountain. A “Dream Oregon” book, featuring photos of artwork and artist’s biographies, will be for sale for $15 at the opening and throughout the duration of the exhibit.
We appreciate the support for this exhibit: the Wildhorse Foundation, Oregon Community Foundation and the Ford Family Foundation.
