Artist Talk: Pepe Hidalgo, Jason Litts and Jesse Reno

Join us for an informal artist talk with Jesse Reno and Jason Litts, Saturday, August 10th at 11am. Also on display in the gallery will be the works of Pepe Hidalgo.

Reno is a self taught mixed media painter. He describes his artistic journey as being about trial, error, changing directions, persistence of ideas, letting intention guide him rather than chasing outcomes, and always remembering his purpose.

Litts attempts to capture symbols and archetypes in his work with the hope that they may tap into the subconscious and create a new and individual story for the viewer.

This event is free and open to the public.

Please join us in welcoming Pepe Hidalgo, Jason Litts and Jesse Reno to Art At The Cave. The Opening Reception will be First Friday, August 2nd from 6-9pm.

Hidalgo's artistic process started as a child during frequent visits to the Museo del Prado in Madrid. Art has allowed him to express himself without prejudice, to lose the objective by which to paint, and to dare to do what he feels without expectations. Litts attempts to capture symbols and archetypes in his work with the hope that they may tap into the subconscious and create a new and individual story for the viewer. Reno is a self taught mixed media painter. He describes his artistic journey as being about trial, error, changing directions, persistence of ideas, letting intention guide him rather than chasing outcomes, and always remembering his purpose.

The Fantasmagorical Journey of Rainbow Giraffe

A long time contributor and friend of the CAVE, Cynthia Heise will be showing her work this May with an opening reception on the 3rd from 6-9pm. In her own words, “Rainbow Giraffe was born in the land of 10,000 lakes. It was also the land of 10,000 water sprites and 10,000 nightmares. Minnesota, of course, inspired escape. Thus began The Quest. Follow now a pictorial journey through the veils of time and some lesser bits of America. Follow now a journey right into the rosy present.”

Sin

Art at the CAVE opens its doors to Sin

The opening exhibition starts at 5pm August 3, 2018.

If you haven't planned to come downtown Vancouver for First Friday we hope you will put it on your calendar right now. This will be a humorous poke at the concept of Sin and a good place to meet up with your fellow patrons of the arts.  108 E Evergreen Blvd., Vancouver, WA 98660. Wine and light refreshments will be served. Many of the artists will be available to answer your questions.

This is a juried show featuring artists Michele Collier, Jessica Damsky, Kayla Griffin, Cynthia Heise, Anne John, Clarice Keegan, Ryan W. Kelly, Meredith Lewis, Marc M. McVey, Alan Rose, Ruth Ross, Sally Sellers, Noah Alexander Isaac Stein, Dale Strouse and Samyak Yamauchi.  The subject – SIN?
How does a civilization's concept of sin and evil influence or express itself in fine art?  What is sin? What isn't? Who cares? How do we define “Sin”?  The Seven Deadly Sins: pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath and sloth are behavioral but are they amoral? Is anything intrinsically ethical, or righteous or evil in reference to some universal code? No deity, no sin? Does that mean no right or wrong; nothing moral or immoral? Is there only good or bad karma and is anything taboo?
