artPICKSWTEXT2Through November

Lunaria’s loft show features guest artist Musa Jaman, a Pacific Northwest native who now lives in Portland.   Many of her oil and pastel paintings are in a large format, emphasizing color, line and contrast, taking the familiar flower subjects into a completely different view than is usually presented.  She  refers to her latest body of work as abstract organics.  It incorporates an approach of creating an alternative perspective on familiar subjects.  She explains that living close to nature has helped form her approach to creating imagery and  exploring the connection between nature, science, and art. Hours: 11am-5pm.  Lunaria Gallery  113 Water St, Silverton  503 873 7734 http://www.lunariagallery.com
