Calappoia Gallery Features Corvallis Artist Angela Waetje
|Calapooia Gallery Exhibit with Angela Waetje.|
Waetje earned her bachelor’s of Fine Art with an emphasis in printmaking from Oregon State University.
On display are Waetje’s The Psychopomps series, which explores responses to death through the narrative of cultural creatures that guide one from this life to the next, and the Strange Deaths series, which chronicles actual and supposed deaths that involved unusual circumstances.
Using the copper plate printmaking process, Waetje creates each image through a single copper plate that has been etched in acid, then altered through sanding, drawing and re-etching to be printed again with additional colors and imagery.
The Calapooia Gallery is located on the first floor of the Calapooia Center building. Admission is free and is open to the public weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
