Art panel exhibit highlights

An artists’ reception will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12, at Gresham City Hall, Visual Arts Gallery, 1333 N.W. Eastman Parkway. Admission is free.

The reception will highlight “Passport to Adventure,” the latest exhibit from the Gresham Art Committee.

Tom Geil, curator, says “Passport” features 50 pieces, ranging from photos and watercolors to sculptures and scarves.

“Adventure means to me something bold and exciting, not just travel around the world,” he says. “It could be a parade, a trip to the zoo, it could be anything.

Geil notes pieces include paintings of athletes; a scrap metal sculpture of a motorcycle; and a photo of two bucks with their antlers entangled in the midst of a snowstorm.

“I kind of reached out to people who never exhibited before,” Geil says. “I like to encourage new people who had never had an opportunity to do it, to broaden their horizon.”

You can also see the exhibit anytime from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through April 14.
