Preview Reception, Wednesday, July 1st, 6-8pm
First Thursday, July 2nd, 6-8pm
Artist Talk, July 19th, 11am

In her show titled "Chaos", Martha Pfanschmidt explores nature's tendency towards disorder, and her own personal efforts to create order from disorder in a series of encaustic mono prints. Concepts such as the butterfly effect and fractals speak to her personal experience of nature, and her readings in Chaos Theory have informed the work for the show.

She continues to explore the medium of encaustic by creating printing plates with wax. She prints multiple times not one piece of paper, and then cuts and reassembles them.

There are many aspects to consider when starting to build an art collection: what to collect, establishing a budget, how and where to purchase work, and how to care for and insure your collection. Waterstone Gallery Co-director R. Keaney Rathbun will touch on these topics with a focus on the Artist’s Role, the benefits to the collector of knowing the artists directly, and the opportunities available to facilitate those relationships.

R. Keaney Rathbun is an artist, an arts educator, an independent curator, the Co-director of Waterstone Gallery, and has served as the President of the Friends of the Gilkey Center for Graphic Arts at the Portland Art Museum, and as the President of the Northwest Print Council. He has given workshops on printmaking and constructed sculpture techniques, and lectures about collecting art.
