Abstract art on display in North Plains library
The North Plains Public Library will host a free reception with refreshments from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 9, for Hillsboro artist Jeff Jurrens.
Jurrens abstract expressionist paintings are large, geometric, textured and colorful and will be exhibited in the library through February.
Inspired by a lifelong appreciation of art and influenced by New Yorks abstract expressionism movement of the 1950s, Jurren has been painting since retiring from the Hillsboro Fire Department in 2005.
He and his wife, Toni, live on a Chehalem Mountain ridge overlooking Hillsboro and the Tualatin Valley. They have a large studio building where Jurrens paints and Toni hand-builds ceramics as their two dogs and cat look on.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
