During the Design Week Portland Open House, Moffit will conduct a demonstration entitled, “Imagining the Subverted Moment,” at 4pm followed by a talk and question/answer with the artist. There is no charge for attendance to the gallery or events.
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.”
The artworks in this exhibition express ideas about the natural world and the essence of things. The show will include Gray’s painting, monotypes by Mayer, and Dengerink’s paintings, sculptures, and an installation that incorporates a soundtrack by artist/drummer Melissa Gueiros. Exhibition opening January 4th from 6-9pm.

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?
