artPICKSWTEXT2Ann Altman creates reverse paintings on glass. This challenging technique requires  proceeding from the foreground to the background and composing an image that will be reversed when finished.  For her current body of work the Silverton artist decided to ask people directly, “what is your favorite thing?” The paintings in this show resulted from some of the surprisingly wide-ranging answers that she received. She is joined by jewelery artist Helen Wiens, who primarily incorporates porcelain or cement with silver in nature-themed jewelry. She uses flowers, leaves, and vining stems in her designs that are inspired by the Art Nouveau style.  August 3-29
