Watercolor artist Susan Bourdet of Jefferson and painter Rob Robinson of Albany are the featured artists for August at Gallery Calapooia, 222 First Ave. W., Albany.
An artists’ reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 4, and will feature the work of Bourdet and Robinson, as well as 18 other mid-valley artists. Wine, beer and snacks will be served. The Rose and Thistle, a recently formed musical trio from Albany, will play music at the reception. It is free.
The exhibit highlights the artists' very different styles. Bourdet paints lifelike watercolor images of birds and animals, while Robinson works in an abstract style.
Robinson’s work with acrylic paint includes a variety of abstract or nonrepresentational paintings and collage with an emphasis on color and texture.
