If you go over North Cascades to Twisp, I really recommend the current show at the Confluence Gallery. The subject matter is Values by Mary Powell and Gary Harper. Gary is a black and white photographer and Mary is a well-known local artist/teacher who emphasizes understanding value. Powell, a master of color, movement and emotion in her impressionist canvases, always begins with a black-and-white value study, incorporating the three components that are the basis of color-value, hue and intensity.
In addition to exhibiting paintings of landscapes, walls and doors, of horses and horse people; and photos of coils of wire, weather and barns, the two artists have provided guides that give further insight into the way they see things. Powell's paintings are accompanied by her diminutive value studies. Red filters are on hand for viewers to the exhibit to learn to see the world as darks and lights devoid of color.
This gallery is open Wednesday-Sunday, through September 17, so plan accordingly.
