“Mountain Memories: Glimpses of Asia,” a collection of acrylic paintings by Newport artist Erin Price, is on display through Sept. 21 in Oregon State University's Little Gallery, 210 Kidder Hall, 2000 SW Campus Way, Corvallis.
The vignettes are inspired by Price's encounters during her time spent living and traveling through Asia and particularly in the foothills of the Himalayas.
“These are the neighbors and mountains I loved — the mist beneath our feet, generosity of ash-cooked potatoes, exhaustion of mountain treks and nights around the fire ... hard row-hoeing, mud huts, goat trails, songs echoing from mountain walls, bustling markets and spicy dishes,” Price said in an artist’s statement. “They signify joys and triumphs; hardship and shared celebrations; tears and grit; tenacity and hope. Most of all, they show love.”
The exhibit is free. The Little Gallery is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m.
